Photos from Friday the 13th

Here are some photos from Friday in South PBC. Fun round of windchop we’ve had this week. Looks like we have a few more days of wind and waves before they start backing off towards the middle of next week.


Fun waist high wind chop with some bigger sets to be had out there this morning. Low tide has a hurtin on it now but the incoming push later this afternoon should be fun.


No waves to speak of this morning but it’s starting off to be a nice beach day. Sorry about the lack of updates lately. I should be able to get back into my routine here soon.

The forecast for Sunday is looking good! There is a chance for offshore winds first thing Sunday morning. If not, it looks like we’ll have straight up big windchop for a few days next week.

Here’s some photos from last week in St. Lucie County.

Merry Christmas

I was fortunate enough to run into Santa and his helpers yesterday as they took a break from their Christmas deliveries to catch some south Florida surf. I was even fortunate enough to find Rasta Claus catching some waves.

There are some fun waves out there this Christmas morning so grab your new Christmas stick and go catch some surf!!!



Small but building winchop this morning throughout South Florida. We should have something rideable by this afternoon and lasting thru the Christmas weekend. The marine forecast has us with waves for most of next week as well.

Here’s a few shots from Thursday morning in North PBC.


Nice to have the clear skies back again. The waves are for the birds but what a nice beach day!

Scored some fun waves up in St. Lucie County yesterday. Looks like there’s some fun ones up there again today.



Glassy flat with a little trace of leftover south swell in the water on this beautiful Wednesday morning. The forecast is looking good for Friday and the weekend. I’m hoping to get a little offshore winds Friday morning but it’s probably wishful thinking.

What a Great time we had on Sunday at Art Basel. Kulcha Shok put on a great event with some of the best bands I’ve seen in a while and an Artist workshop for the kids! Pure STOKE!!!

Fun SE windchop this morning in Boca. Tide had it a little funky but there were some nugs to be had. This afternoon should be fun with the incoming tide push. Get it before it’s gone. The winds are forecast to back off and go offshore tomorrow.


Flat conditions this morning in Pompano. The winds are forecast to come onshore and give us some small windchop over the next few days.

Here’s a few shots from yesterday morning in Central PBC.


Flawless Beach day with the offshore winds this morning. No waves to speak of but a perfect day to go dive, fish or SUP! High pressure is forecast to fill in and bring some onshore winds for the next few days. We should get some rideable chop out of it.

Looks like we have a real cold front coming this weekend giving us a chance for the first bounce swell of the season on Sunday. Might be time to break out some rubber …they’re forecasting it to be cold Sunday morning.

Here’s a few shots from St. Lucie County this past weekend.
