Well we had a run of surf this past week. Nothing epic but if you were in the right spot at the right time you probably got some ridables to at least keep you happy for the time being. March is traditionally a decent month for us so keep the fingers crossed. Thanks to all who contributed especially those that reported and gave forecasts. Its amazing the level that has been reached in predicting surf for Soflo. There are many of you that do your homework and really know what is going on. I doubt there are many surfing communities out there that put the time into it as we do (a necessity here as our windows of opportunity are so small). One thing for sure is that forecasting is part art, part science, part local knowledge and most of all alot of fun.
As for surf don't look for anything too extravagant this week. We get a short shot of NW/N windswell Sun/Mon. A weak low off the Eastern seaboard wraps up and gives us a shot of NE fetch but it moves quickly out to sea. Mild to mod winds out of the East prevail the second half of the week may keep us in the ridable (or at least longboardable range). Our best chance is possible 20 knt + East winds next Fri/Sat. Enjoy---

Looks like we will finally get some ridables this week. Firstly the wind increase from our high pressure above us will likely pan out as the models had predicted. Look for increasing E then SE wind chop from 15-20 knts winds starting today and going thru Wed. There will also be quite a few hours of S winds so a mild clean up should occur for you die hard baby S swellers. The real story is that giant low that is currently deepening off Nova Scotia. All the models agree that there will be sideband fringe swell from the NE in the Palm Beaches North starting late Tuesday and going thru Thursday AM. Primary angle will be 45 deg shifting to 60 deg by sometime Thursday. Heights range from 4-6-8 ft at 13-14 sec on most models with the 4ft 13 sec scenario being the most popular. The better models take the Bahama blockage into account so don't expect much South of the Palm Beaches (NE swell wise). As Mr W correctly pointed out thereis a good possibility of offshores coinciding with with the NE swell on Thursday. So there you have it. Sumting for everyone. Cross your fingers and be good, spread the positive vibes. King Neptune has been watching us and will reward those that do. I officially declare this King Neptune week. Go out there and enjoy.
