Saturday 8 am Buoys are 6ft from the WNW at 7-8seconds. C-Man site in Venice reporting NNE at 8-10. That’s classic day after… Hopefully the super low tide is not messing it up too bad at those spots that are good on a low tide(there are only a few). I hope your getting some waves. Somebody gimme a report around noon. Hopefully it’s still good. Lots of reports in the comments. Check out the Compound event at Siesta Public today! See the flyer below.
Photos from Friday afternoon in St Pete below. 4pm: I have not surfed ST Pete in so long, I forgot how to get to the beach and had to double back… serious. The shots below are to show you how it was. I am sure it was bigger up the beach but it’s good to surf close to home. The dredge sand reaked of fertilizer makin me sick, the smell from that garbagio… and the shoal is still outside, you can see it breakin the waves in the pics. If there was no shoal it would have been really fun. Rip Curl on… Middles looking so fun and Dane Reynolds the form surfer of the event to me, just going bonkers! pa manyana: Waist high and glassy best c-front spots in the am. I would say it would be bigger but tide will hurt… I think.
Pa que tu sabes: viernes a las 8: Get up, Time to Surf! So cool to finally get waves. Don’t have a viz from N County yet but Im sure it’s waist high based on what you see in St Pete and the buoys. St Pete got 1.75 inches of rain from that powerful front that passed. That was after 8 weeks of drought. It is 59 this am and headed for a high only in the 60’s today. If you bust into your wetsuit no one will make fun of you:) It’s chilly out. Gonna be a great weekend. Check the comments for reports throughout the day and go get some waves! Olas, paz y amor to all the long suffering surfers of WFL.
Wed 11pm: A very strong cold front for the first week of November will pass late Thursday bringing a solid round of surf to the desperately starving surfers of WFL. Finally, waves. Surf will come up on Thursday in the afternoon possibly stormy, waist high and choppy. Friday best c-front spots could see chest to head high choppy surf in the afternoon with 25knt NW winds. Overnight Friday night the wind will lighten slightly and clock NNE giving WFL it’s first day after swell in years. Look for waist to chest high clean swell at the best c-front spots down south on Saturday am. Wind call for Saturday am is NNE at 15. There will be a low tide Saturday around 7am, so slow incoming after that. This is what you’ve waited for WFL, you more than deserve it. I hope you can all blow off whatever you have going on and takes these two and a half days to surf your brains out. There’s nothing behind it, yet. So surf it up. You can post your reports in the comments here. Wetsuits will be needed on Saturday, run in the Compound and grab one. SURF, SURF, SURF!
You could even DP Saturday am and then go help out with the Compound (see flyer below) event and the kids will have some clean little waves to surf.
