Slave to the Wave Surf Report and Photos


Pretty much the same waist to chest with the occasional head high set from one end of Central Palm Beach County to the other. Really unorganized with the high tide and storm surge on all the sandbars I checked this morning. North winds are getting on it now but there is some potential for it to be fun this afternoon with the incoming tide push. This looks like the last day for any size in South Florida so get it if you can. There might be some longboardable leftovers down here tomorrow morning and then it looks to go flat for awhile. North of the Bahamas blockage should see waves for a few more day.


The full gallery from yesterday is up!
