GO VOTE in the Nov. 20th Run-Off

Personal message here from TJ. As folks know, I'm pretty passionate about politics and beach projects. Here in Miami Beach there is currently a very BIG breakwater and sand pumping project going on as well as a run-off election to decide the City's next Mayor and Commission.

I’ve come to find that Commission candidate Deede Weithorn understands the folly of the current breakwater and sand pumping project while the other candidate does not. She's earned my vote and I hope you'll consider giving her yours to. Early voting for the run-off starts this coming weekend 9am-7pm at Miami Beach City Hall. You can also call Deede's campaign (305-725-5706) and they'll shack you up with an absentee ballot if you can't make it to the polls on Nov. 20th.

Run-off elections are very low-low turnout so our community has a chance to put someone in office who'll listen when we've got something to say.  That's worth taking the time to GO VOTE!

Next time you are out there, you gotta give this kid a wave

Sorry to step on Pete's forecast, but the story about Harry Greenberg kicking some cancer ass is too good to wait.

Check out the story: http://www.surfline.com/surfnews/article.cfm?id=12044

Thanks to Andrew Petersen and Kech!

UPDATE: Friend and sponsor of the page Jesse Friedman (who happens to be Harry's cousin) wanted to let everyone know that they have set up donations to benefit the Heidi Hewes Chapter of the UM Woman's Cancer Association & The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, All checks should be payable to Heidi Hewes WCA and sent to Miami Country Day School, 601 NE 107 Street, Miami, Florida 33161 Attention: Marilyn Greenfield.

Upcoming forecast

Hope everyone got to surf this past swell.  Pics are starting to come in. There are some Sobe pics as well as some good shots of RR. I like the angle of Jose and some of the watershots.  On top of that we have a real nice gallery from our ol friend Blaze in the South Pacific.

As for this week, we have a dry front coming down. A quick shot of North winds, stronger upcoast lighter down here. This will occur this evening and thru tomorrow . Unfortunately minimal chance of NW' erlies but never say never.  Tomorrow look for waist high North windswell maybe shoulder high in select places (Palm beaches or maybe even South) with a 10-15 knt North wind More NW in central Fla.

Further out this weekends low setup is looking like a bust . Too bad as the models had it blowing up earlier in the week. Longer range models hinting of NE fetch aimed at us. Thank god for fall weather and waves.

TOLD JA!

Sozbech is going off. Size, winds are in alignment...YET it 's surprisingly mixed up BUT am I complaining? Hell NA! Sets are beautiful cobra heads striking at all who dare the drop. Dave making them all and being rewarded with barrel after barrel. Others getting ground into the sand if they make the drop and those who don't make the drop.....well it is the classic South Beach sitting chair position as they fly 5 to 10 feet out onto the flats! That's what I call being pitched! Mid-beach has long OH lines and it's feathering on the second reef. TJ and I watched in amazement as 5 wave sets poured in. Sand bars are a mess there so many closeouts and very dredgy. High tide will be better but what will the wind be by then?
