Happy New Year 904! After our last bit of swell to ring in 2019 we’ve had a early summer-like shift, and a flat spell has settled in. We’d had a good run of surf throughout the fall and into early winter, but just as we transition through the prime months of Hurricane Season, winter witching months are ahead. Time to think 4/3 suit versus 3/2–and maybe get the booties and head gear dusted off. Seriously.
We’re also finally getting out of the winter solstice moon phase so the tides and rips will mellow out just in time for another little winter warmup into Friday, with more chilly surf headed our way after the weekend. There’s a substantial cold air mass of high pressure pouring down from Canada later this week, and a tailing low pressure system in the south that is trending toward the East Coast as of late, all of which could make things interesting for the Appalachian Trail.
All this to say: We should be seeing a little wind bump come Friday in the waist high range once the front progresses, then a lull into the weekend. But things get more interesting come Monday. None of this is written in stone, but what we can expect is ridable surf on Friday, and some bigger chilly surf filling in on Monday. Stay tuned.
