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.

In case you live in a cave and haven't noticed, there is a cat 4 out there in the Central Bahamas . I don't expect this forum to take off like in years past (yea I know, its passe ) but damn there has to be some lurkers here that can chime in . This is what we were originally all about . Anyhows I've been watching dis spinner from afar in my Homeland 5,000 miles away . Incidentally I was back in South Fla this past weekend for family tragedy but only stayed a few days . Twin Brother Rod scored excellent waves Tuesday upcoast (By Fla standards) . I missed it by one day (Boo hoo) . I'll try to post some of his pics .
Anyhows back to the present moment . Joaquin has been givning the models fits but the track seems to be more in alignment now . Here's the good news : Probable slot swell sometime today . Yes they are fabled and short lived so if you score , brag all about it right here . As Joaquin rides da ridge North it will enter the Central Fla swell window . Expect East swell shld high or so , maybe mo bigga or maybe mo smalla (You know this is Fla ) Sometime Saturday . Winds will be veering NW then West (Can it get any better). Big problem is the storm will now be racing NE and at a good clip which always spells bummers as we have come to learn . Still there is good potential for East swell upcoast Saturday into Sunday and possible NE swell on Monday , even a fabled kick back swell with a more Northerly direction Late Monday into Tueaday . The big question is : " Will South beach work?" . I've already been asked that question and i would say No. it doesnt look like a swell maker for down Southland . But for those that beleive in Virginia and Santa Claus , there is still a glimmer of hope. Fla has been wave starved for too long , let the swell trains roll in .

Alright kiddies , Pete here doing a cameo since no one seems to care anymore . This site in its heyday was a fun place to post and reports and forecasts . Looks like sumting brewing . Even though Erica fell apart the remnant low of herself is ramping up winds in the Fla straights . Molasses buoy showed steady 24-28 Knt Southy winds which means goodness fo Dade County. Wont last long though so get it today. Maybe tomorrow am will have leftovers.
Its been 4 years since i moved to Hawaii and this is the first year of dodging tropical systems out here Fla style . With El Nino heating up waters we now have a ridiculous 3 major hurricanes surrounding us . Same deal as usual , hoping they get close enough to send swell with offshore winds but stay far enough to not destroy us ( I still got the primal fear from going thru Andrew) . Go shred boyz . Let us know how it waz.

Florida Forecast(South Florida)
Winds come up out of the NW on Tuesday night way upcoast starting the building of swell. Winds will stay in the 15-25kt range out of the NW until veering more NE on Friday. Swell being generated for South Florida. Look for the swell to arrive late Wednesday and build through Friday. Easterly windswell for the weekend.
Wednesday: Flat in the morning, building to a trace by mid-day. Possibly a small rideable bump by dark. Winds NW and strong.
Thursday: Probably not much more than waist high in the morning, but building. Could get up in to the chest+ range by evening. Winds NNW and strong.
Friday: Chest to Shoulder+ with strong N going NE winds. Pay attention to the wind forecast, as we could see better conditions than currently forecast.
Saturday: Easterly windswell in the thigh to waist high range.
Sunday: Fading easterly windswell. Knee high+
