Baby, it’s cold outside! Well … at least for our standards, but at least we’re not getting pounded by snow like up north — though our shores are going to be pounded with some cheerful Holiday Swell! So far so good this winter season! We had some consistent waves overall, and Santa Clause looks to bring us some more waves for the weekend!

Currently, we have a couple of big winter weather factors going on that are setting us up for some good swell. A long, low-pressure system following the last front is stretching across Texas into the Midwest and right over the Florida Panhandle, up the East Coast over Hatteras where we sit just below the fringes. We are cold, but not too cold, and we’re set up for some good swell-producing conditions! A huge dip in the jet stream out west is steering this front and as the weather pattern progresses into the big weekend ahead, we’ll have waist-to-chest-high surf pretty much every day and the right tide and place, with some variable wind and warming days in between fronts.

Fun times ahead all week, great last-minute shopping for the surfer in your family, and maybe even some bars of wax as a stocking stuffer. Maybe even a Christmas Eve, home Jags game!? If you haven’t gotten out to get that last-minute shopping done, be sure to check out our many surf shops, boutiques, restaurants and other establishments over the Holidays for that perfect gift or a great night out! Support local and support the businesses that support Void! We’ll be back online this weekend for a Christmas Eve update as we always love a Christmas Swell to break in a new surfboard or wetsuit from under the tree!
