*This is Rory Gregg with your Northeast Florida Surf Forecast*Updated 3/31/15*
A quiet start to our week as high pressure snugs into the Gulf. We won’t be cruel and play an April fools joke on you and tell you there is a mack daddy swell on the way anytime soon, and whenever you see the “Big H” on the weather map sitting in the Gulf it usually doesn’t bode well for our swell window. With that said, the Easter Bunny looks like he’ll be bringing us some surf come Sunday! We have a little low pushing off the Mid-Atlantic at present and another little patch to follow. We should see some little waves start to build throughout the week, and with a waxing moon phase we’ll see some big tides! Time your sessions wisely around the tides and you could find a bump or two to have some fun on! It’s time to get out there to your favorite local surf shops this week to buy some goodies for the Easter baskets. Maybe build a basket with a pair of flops, a leash, wax, combs, fins, and a traction pad! Or how about a pair of shades, a hat, and a couple tees! Also, make sure to get your restaurant reservations in for Good Friday at your favorite seafood joints and they will get booked up quick!
