Waves coming

I've been eyeing this storm for days now and feel confident saying this may be the swell maker we have been waiting for this season . All Model tracks have Mathew Heading North and staying just East of us off the bahama bank. If everything goes as planned we will be in the swell mode next Wednesday . South Fla shoudl wake up and fire . Results may vary. Feel free to chime in . I know this site is nowhere near what it used to be but damn " dis is a real potential swell maker" .

RIP

Just wanted to let the Dade surf community know that Tony Bird has passed . We lose another South Beach local . He was a great guy, awesome surfer with super smooth style . Kinda reminded me of Parko.  Don't know the details but i know he left a family . Will try to post some pics here . Please chime in if you knew him.

On another note there should be some SE swellage above the Bahama blockage later on this week. Nothing major but something for those that care to travel North to find a wave.

Hurricane surf coming to a beach near you

Pete here doing a rare appearance . Could'nt help but look at the East coast models for Hermine . Things look good for a sharp angled NNE swell arriving Tuesday . This one looks like it might have enought North in it to wake up South beach from the slumber party.  The only downer is the onshore winds forcast (at least it might be pretty lightish in the early am) . Good chance it will stick around till Wednesday and pau (gone) by Thursday as the fetch moves out.   I grew up surfing South and hurricane surf .  Wish I could be there for this event . Can't complain tho, Just had a near miss with a large cane here in Hawaii (Lester the molester) . It passed as a strong Cat 2 and missed us by a hair . Big east swell . Fun. Hope you kiddies get sum.
