Friday WFL Surf Forecast 9am: 2 invests to talk about. The 1st one in 97L. It is supposed to bring a wave of moisture to the Caribbean on Sunday, 48 hours away. How, when its 1200 miles away can it get to PR that fast? It's moving at 25. Here's what interesting about 97L it's already in 2 pieces. The GFS shows the top piece making it into the GOMEX 5 days from now. Still it's a fast moving easterly wind storm, a open wave of moisture with not much spin at all. So it could just breeze right below WFL with ESE winds at 20 plus and not give surf to WFL but it's worth watching. One last note on 97, I live on the west side of PR this is an open east wave, we ain't getting jack squat but Isabela should have some surf and SE PR. My little pueblo has not seen a wave bigger than knee high for over a month now. Next up, 96L way out with a better chance still not super favorable(it's still July). In conclusion here's hoping to the minuet chance 97L slows down and starts to spin below Miami and has just enough SSE passing Cayo Hueso(20-30%) to present a couple hours of thigh high glassy nugs middle next week. Next forecast: Thursday.

Tuesday Mysto Swell Redux: I woke up Tuesday super early. It was a big day for me so I grabed my cup of coffee and go on the local cam here in PR like I always do and attached to the cam page is a link to Surfline's wave charts. I clicked into it and noticed a lighter shade of blue over the eastern gulf that was not there the day before. That was my tip-off... I quickly checked the buoys below the panhandle and saw what was going on. Hopefully I gave somebody a heads up. So glad you got some waves to surf. All the pics looked really fun. A couple posts in our comment section give a nice take on what happened. Ever been out on a summer day surfing gulf waves when a t-storm comes from the east and glasses the waves off? Man, that is so rare but it is so cool when it happens!

has been a favorite destination for surfers for decades. Easy access to perfect surf, friendly locals, natural beauty and amazing tropical wildlife are all easily available. Uvita is one of the up and coming areas in SW Costa Rica. It is desirable due to it's close proximity to the consistent waves of Playa Dominical and it's an easy striking distance to Pavones, one of the world's longest, funnest lefts.
