Check your favorite wave models.

Looks pretty big for 4 days out. Onshore winds of course, but maybe glass off afterwards.



.DISCUSSION...
...Significant High Seas and Surf Event Likely Late Week...

Thursday-Friday...As the ridge axis slides away, a strong cold front
will dig across the south on Thu, sending a northerly wind surge
across the local waters early Friday. As the front continues
southward, a tight pressure gradient will increase northeasterly
winds up to 20-25 kts with gusts to gale force. Seas will begin to
build quickly north to south on Friday up to 9-11 ft and up to 13 ft
in the Gulf Stream. A Small Craft Advisory will no doubt be
necessary late this week, with the potential for Gale products in
the offshore waters.

Plenty of swell at the Light this AM and the worst sandbars I've ever seen. And no, I'm not just bagging on it to keep people away, it truly sucked; 3 to 4, glassy and not a wave to be ridden from O-club to Hangars.

I hear some of the new sand spots are okay - Satellite, but that might be lies.

Not good where I was at

Sitting in the water waiting, waiting, waiting, for one that will feel a bottom and break.

It's time to do some sand recon

Cole, I surfed with a few friends at Coconuts yesterday and the day before. At higher tide pretty fun. No ditch, nice sandbar, a bit of dynamics to the beach there.

    Surfline shows about the same height south at least to Palm Beach Co., but shrinking north of Brevard.
    Windy shows the wind wave event moving north-south. Friday would be the day for NSB

I looked down there and wondered. Slater has a perfect bar at 1 foot, anything larger maxes out. lol
