Upcoming forecast

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---
