Slave to the Wave Surf Report and Photos


Some knee to waist high swell in South Central Florida today. The winds got on it early making it messy with the long period swell. There were a few good ones to be had tho. Looks like the same for tomorrow north of the Bahamas blockage. Doesn’t look like much down south. The winds are forecast to go offshore in the afternoon. Could be a fun evening session.

POSSIBLE Massive Swell Setting Up for WaveMasters 2015
From Chickie Dimain aka DaBuh on 04/23/15 at 5:41pm

Our last update on the 19th we mentioned a POSSIBLE Extreme Event coming. Recent model runs are trending on a MASSIVE Swell Event setting up for the Atlantic. If forecast models hold true there can be no doubt that one will take place along the East Coast of the United States. We are talking Tow-In at Pump House Extreme and the possibility that WaveMasters 2015 could be all time.  First things first though. This image is from 3 days ago showing the Hurricane Force Low that was located SE of Newfoundland. Max Seas ended up in excess of 35 feet more
