Wednesday 5/22 WFL: Calm in WFL with surges of SE trades pushing offshore into the GOMEX every day. New in the extended forecast today (the 144hr model does not even show this feature) ia a low pressure forming in the Yucatan and moving towards the middle ATL via WFL. This is CLIMO and makes sense as a weeks worth of strong SE trades piles up into the Yucatan. I would give it 50/50. We will watch it, it may disappear tomorrow but it makes sense if it were to happen.
I apologize for my flakiness the last few weeks. I did not expect it to go flat here for the last week of April and the 1st week of May. It was an abrupt issuance into a flat summer I was not ready for and it messed with my psyche… When the waves finally came back I was like a frothing surf starved grom, leaving early every am to chase the surf(forget aurasurf.com). Then I got sick… yada yada yada. I will try and be my usual consistent self going fwd to the WFL summer as I think you guys will have more surf chances than I will 🙂
Caribe: Thinking of coming down to score off season PR? The swell looks to fill in by Friday pm and last for at least a few days. Chest to head high range. We have very light trades and afternoon storms moving from SE to NW. So even the N coast glassed off yesterday in the afternoon after the rain.
Surf Story: Thursday night I didn’t sleep well… Up at 6 on Friday I went straight to Indy for the new swell but it was too small so I went to Aguada to check a reef I have been watching- there was a perfect left. It looks like a right also but the right is not that good and a heck of a paddle back out. The left comes out of deep water to heave on a shallow flat reef. The reef drops quickly to the east causing the left to flop after it initially breaks in the peak. The rest of the left wall rolls and reforms on the inside reef and just starts firing. I surfed this left by myself all morning… it was so long and fun, nobody out, calm winds. I had a hard time getting out of the water. Later that day all the sickness around me caught up to me finally and I spent the weekend basically in bed while all those waves went off w/o me. I’ll have my eye on that left in the future. If you would like to see a video of it you can check my post from last Saturday @caribbean_weather on insta(follow it)… I got to score that again.
