Killer sunrise this morning! To bad there are no waves to go along with it.

Looks like another round of waves coming this week. Some SE windchop on Wednesday with hopefully a cleanup South swell on Thursday and a bounce swell Friday and Saturday. Hope the pattern holds! Its been a good little run for the past few weeks so far!


Fun waves for the log this morning in The PBC. Pics are from both central and south PBC. Still some waves to be had so grab the log and get some!

Friday Afternoon

Fun waves this afternoon in South Central PBC! Hope it holds for the morning!!!!


Sloppy choppy SE mixed windswell this morning in North Broward. There’s a few rides to be had and it might be getting better by now. I’m sure there’s a little more size up north but with the onshore winds it’s gonna be messy everywhere.

Here’s a few shots from Joaquin Anico taken on the Sunday in PBC. Some sick ones! Check Joaquin’s work out on Facebook

Tuesday MorningĀ 

Good Morning.  



 Knee to Thigh High plus wind swell mix. Long-Boardable. SE winds at 15-20+ and a High Tide around 9:40 AM. Better later? We’ll see. Keep Praying for Surf!!! Adios!


Some fun longboard waves this morning in Central PBC. Winds are on it now and the swell is dropping fast.

Looks like another round of waves coming this week. Same scenario as the past couple of weeks. SE wind chop Tuesday and Wednesday with Hopefully a south swell with good winds on Thursday. And then a NW bounce swell on Friday. Hope it all pans out!


Fun waves today in Palm Beach County. Still some swell in the water but it’s fading fast. Get it if you can!

First group of photos are from Central PBC and the second groups are from this morning in South PBC.

Waist plus south pbc and north Broward


High tide has a funk on ot but there’s some fun ones coming in. GO SURF!!!

Sunday Morning!

Brrrrr…!!! Good Morning! Knee to Waist High plus North swell lines. It’s sorta Short-Boardable. Light NW winds with a High Tide around 8:30 AM. Go!!! Adios! 



Glassy flat with a leftover south swell surging on the beach. The winds are forecast to blow hard west today and start clocking NW tonight. Good chance we’ll get a little Bounce swell out of it by tomorrow. Gonna be COLD tomorrow morning tho!

Here’s a few shots from yesterday afternoon as the swell started to fade. From what I hear it was good and chunky at a few spots right around noon.

So, Sunday, January 24th, the Punky Reggae party is going down! We will have the guys from Instaramp out here with their mobile half pipe. 5$ donations to skate all day! As well, we will have our bud DJ Los spinning the best old school punk and reggae all day. Papas Pilar rum will be on hand, making the tastiest of tasty rum drinks all day. We will have a food truck here(tba) , and a ton of great art and prizes to win!

Our raffle will have gift certificates, as well as custom painted skateboards and surf boards. We will have beautiful ocean photography from Slave to the Wave, and local skate shop gift certificates.

All in all, we are gonna have one hell of a fun party, for an even better cause. Please come out and enjoy a day of great tunes, killer skating, and delicious rum drinks. Please tell your friends, and spread the word. We truly hope you all can make it!
