Slave to the Wave Surf Report and Photos

Friday

Pretty much knee high to flat south of the Bahamas blockage. The above photos are from Delray. The Jupiter and Jensen cams are showing some swell. Might be worth the trip upcoast.

Looks to stay flat for a bit in South Florida. We might get a little SE flow this weekend tho. Hopefully big enough for the longboard.

Art on the Slide will be a new area here on Slave to the Wave where you will find postings on surf related happenings in the art community here in the south Florida area and beyond. Many sea creatures pass the time on flat days with some paint or other media, visions of past swells dancing in there minds. This place here is a place to share with you some of those artists and to keep the stoke flowing. From time to time we also will be putting together ‘Art on the Slide’ art shows and events. The first of those will be coming up on Wednesday. Aug 27th, for the A Conversation with Garrett McNamara event.
