A fun run of waves this week so far with some nice weather as we approach spring! Spring officially starts March 20, which is essentially right around the corner. We spring forward for daylight savings time this Sunday, so don’t forget to set your clocks ahead an hour! We love daylight savings time because surfing until dark gets a little warmer as the days get a little longer. After months of early sunsets, we can finally catch some waves after work and school! We can also usually celebrate spring surf because historically, we have really good waves throughout this season. The meteorological winter runs roughly from December through March, and the astronomical winter from January through April, so we may have a last gas winter swell on tap before it’s all over!

As the Big “H” is sitting out in the middle of the ocean soaking up some rays upon Bermuda, our little swell will start fading over the next 48 hours. We are still in a very tidal situation right now, so if you time your sessions right, you can find some fun waves at the right breaks! Our next system approaching through the midwest is wrecking portions of Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas with flooding and high winds. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those in harms way as that region has taken the whip many times over the last few months. This system will steam forward towards us this weekend, and it is uncertain on which direction it may shift at this point, so we’ll have to keep a close eye on this one. As of right now, it is predicted that there will be an eventual shift in the swell from the south, but the warm air from the Gulf will be sucked in behind this front, knocking the surf down. Mother Nature works in mysterious ways, and we’ll be back online for a weekend update!
