GC Surf Week

Tuesday WFL Updater 6am: Buoys are 14-17ft at 11 seconds from the west. Massive seas headed at WFL. On the beach winds are NW and NNW at 25-30. I noticed on the PORTS data the Tampa Bay spots are reporting NNW winds and Venice is reporting 330 degrees NNW at dawn 28-30. That means a few of the south facing beaches could be a little cleaner and less VAS this morning. All the models I saw show the wind backing even more WNW and staying close to 25 all day long. The low in the ATL has created this massive down hill suction across Florida for this one, tons of wind. Too bad, 17′ at 11 seconds could have been really fun if the wind would get off of it. I hope a little searching pays of for the die hard dawn patrollers. El Nino coming on a little strong. Forecast below looks to stick.

Tuesday looks head high plus, choppy with 25knt WNW winds. Wednesday looks waist to chest high with 20knt west winds. Clean up day is Thursday with waist high plus WNW swell and lighter N winds. Friday and Saturday look calm at this point. So that’s how surf week looks, a lot of hard onshore winds until Thursday. At least there will be tons of surf around.

Caribe on Tuesday Everyone wants to know how big will it get? Models have been all over the map on this one. This am the buoy is actually down, 2.6@ 11 seconds. Up north, Peak seas east of Bermuda were 37ft. How does it do that???!!! Most of that swell is headed to Europe. Surfline was calling for double OH plus in PR by this afternoon. So far I don’t really see it. The last strong storm only got 8ft here. Most of the biggest swell missed the island because there is so much west in it. Back with photos later…

Costa Rica
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. Casa Uvita features comfort in new construction minutes from the surf breaks of Dominical with an awesome view of the whales tale. Check into Casa Uvita for your next Costa Rica surf trip.
