Robert August Would Go.

Shallow sand bar log wave that offered super long glides.

Wednesday 7am WFL Surf Forecast: Got a log? Seriously now is a good time to have a 9’6 or something that will ride small waves. The surf this am is 1ft range maybe knee high (1ft knee high are about the same to me). Onshore flow at 15knts up and down the coast… buoys are 2-3ft WNW short period. It could bump up slightly on the right time and tide this afternoon. Even if… it’s cool to be able to wash off the work day with an evening log sesh or take your grom surfing. Onshore winds will last into Friday, maybe a clean up before the small waves disappear over the weekend. Friday could be bigger with some waist high wind waves on tap. Plenty of opps for a late April log sesh. Check out the Compound for a sweet new LB. Summary: Log waves for the rest of the week with the possibility of slightly more on the right time and tide.


Saturday at Wildo

Julieta hard at work.

Awesome crew from SRQ.

  2. Fuggin

    I will be tucking behind some rocks trying to hide from the wind. Dp or High tide may get fun tomorrow with a 100% chance of gnarly by end of day. Schwing!

    Upham doesn’t really break anymore! I always check there first and consistently hang there also. Hoping on after the new jetties and dredge it will come back. I’ll prolly be at the zoo or sj so just wake up and call it ! Frothing today was fun!

    oscillation: movement back and forth at a regular speed.

    GoodSUNday Morning – thanks for the clarification Micah : )) and the weather update – Coldfronts have been providing waves…. … but omg — I just can’t take being cold anymore – I looked like my wilted herb garden after that last elNorte’ … warm southies/southwesterlies please…… need to get out of drydock – Red Tide been popping up here and there – ooo yah… that 2018 ‘Cane list…… I shuddered…LOL…thinking about shutter(ing) again.

    There’s a loggable wave to be found on the local sandbars right now as of 5 pm. Blind Pass had a legit rideable wave this afternoon around Noon. Someone was out on a longboard getting waves … call it knee high.

  10. Fuggin

    The southy never really materialized at the spots in manatee and srq that I checked yesterday pm. There were a few bars with some knee high gromable lb quick rides. There has to be a chance a bar around these parts is catching some energy. Buoys look similar maybe slightly up. Wind still ripping down here. The hunt is on!

    I enjoyed that vid too, I am always thinking about the guy out there in the water with the camera –like don’t they get pounded????…, and then it’s Machado <3 ….
    Gerry Lopez, Rob Machado, Cory Lopez…. my favorites —
    Did not get waves… the fricking traffic won…..whole lotta tourista's jammin & crammin every bit of asphalt …but they're leaving and it's getting warmer <3

    Unreal catching crashboats good and uncrowded! One of my favorite waves on the planet! Sick shots and score!

  13. Fuggin

    Dreamscape looking real dreamy! I’ll have to settle for the 1-2footers rolling through still this evening. Gonna hit it with some foam!

    The waves had my name on them yesterday… if I wrote a request to Neptune and he decided to please me. For two hours I escaped all of the worries, sadness I’ve been heart holding…..for two hours I forgot everything – even my age. And I am grateful to our Creator for providing that for me

    St Pete saw some tiny waves yesterday…barely LB’able, Not meaning to spoil the good vibes about knee hi surf but Surf Line nailed it as copied below. ๐Ÿ™‚ Eventually the Gulf will see a legit wave the last being the 3/21-22/18 event. Maybe next Sunday Micah? Too far out to say.

    Surfline: “โ€ขSmall SW windswell/dribble early week”

    I said the South facers meaning STPete would not get it. the guys down South sure looked like they had fun on ‘knee-high dribble’… I saw waves in Captiva Venice and Bradenton, just not Pinellas county.

    I would take the weekend forecast with a grain of salt because with la nina it almost always goes Notch down sorry

    It was fun where I went. I got a few keepers – even though it was small, there were plenty of lines to be found. It actually got glassy and clean right before I left prior to Noon. Nothing to write home about, but I’m glad that I did the dawn patrol yesterday morning.

  19. Fuggin

    I scored 2 log sessions yesterday (fun & clean in the am) & again this am. The hunt continues tomorrow schwing!

  20. DW

    A proper wave Sun evening thru Tue morning…in Pinellas no less! Fun despite the wind first two days and even a clean LB session yesterday before work with Lenny’s crew, some SUP’ers and beginners making it all mellow yellow surf.

    Upham malnourishment is still ongoing. for only the cost of a cup of coffee a day you can make a difference. sand will be flowing on sunset soon . Hope it works.

  22. DW

    Julieta the li’ shredder!!! So fun to surf with your kids. Mine are grown but remember it well. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ha, “beach renourishment”, government double speak for subsidized dredge and fill for the moneyed interests.

    Today would be a good day to have off and be on the EC.

  23. Fuggin

    Small lb lines rolling in this afternoon knee- occasionally thigh+ gonna hit it with some foam!

  24. EVY

    Arrrrvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvy – why didn’t I check here first thing in the morning????

  25. Fuggin
