Saturday 6am DP: Looking pretty small in the dawn light. Is the Venice surfline cam infa red? holy cow you can see everything. Looks knee to thigh down there and knee high in St Pete. Buoys are still semi-solid from the N and NW 4-7ft at 7 seconds. Hope you find some waves. Maybe it will pulse mid morning… Tide is low but not too low and trying to come in acc to the PORTS data. Take a big board and lo expectations. ESA will score some thigh high clean lines, hopefully waist high.

Friday 6am WFL Updater: The front just passed 036 at 6am. Everything is on track to play out as planned for once. The forecast below looks to stick. All the models are forecasting solid return flow next week even for the eastern gulf so there may be a south swell next week for the X mas Holiday :). Enjoy the surf. Need rubber? Check out the Compound.
Thursday WFL 12/17/16 6am: There could be a small ridable S/SW swell at the best south facing beaches at some point today, there have been some winds N of Cuba, worth a glance with low expectations. Tomorrow the surf should be ridable by lunchtime as a solid cold front does what it’s supposed to do. Biggest waves will be before dark Friday then Saturday looks knee to waist high and glassy and chilly for the ESA contest at SVJ.
