Surf Forecast 6-30-2014

Flat Flat Flat.

BUT! We have a tropical disturbance off the Florida coast about 150 miles east of Melbourne Beach. NHC is forecasting the storm to get better organized, and become a tropical depression and/or cyclone in the coming days.

While we're not seeing any reason to bail out of work yet, this storm is in our window and forecast to organize and strengthen. Something to monitor, that's for sure!

Surfrider Meeting Thursday 5/15 with Wave Modeling Expert as guest speaker

May 15th at the Surfrider Meeting at the MB Botanical Gardens - 7 to 9:15 p.m. Wave forecasting expert to speak at Surfrider Foundation Miami Community meeting:

Alex Gibbs, Senior Forecaster with the National Weather Service, will speak at our community meeting this month. Gibbs possesses a keen understanding of and passion for nearshore wave modeling.

This will be a treat for the hard-core surf community, the amatuer wave forecasters among us (where's Pete Ferrer?) and the public safety community since Gibb's talk will include rip current dynamics.

Surfrider will also update the community on key initiatives, activism options, serve pizza & beer and flash some hot surf footage on the screen.

Surf Forecast 5-9-2014

Quick little forecast:

Spring weather is upon us and our normal springtime change-of-seasons windchop is here. Winds should be in the 15-20 kt range for the upcoming weekend and in to next week. A low is going to skirt the coast near the Bahamas shifting the wind more NE early next week.

Waves are in the flat to waist high range depending on tide and sandbars. Look for the tide to drain a bit more, then a high tide at about 5pm.
