Thursday July 9th
Swell is on the way! An area of low pressure has moved off the Hatteras coast and is tracking north, heading straight for SNJ. Seas will build rapidly overnight and by Friday morning it should be 6’+, then peaking midday (possibly 8’!). Unfortunately since the storm is hitting us straight on, we will see stiff onshore winds to start the day, but as the storm moves north, look for winds to shift S, then SW by afternoon and even possibly WSW by evening. Keep your eyes on it all day because there should be a window. Saturday will still be solid with 4-5’ surf, but southerly flow will make for sloppy conditions at most beaches. Still plenty rideable though. More good news – after that, a Bermuda high will settle in and should produce a few days of south swell. Sunday is looking really fun with 4-5’ SE swell @ 8 seconds, with light offshores in the morning – GET ON IT! Seas will actually pick up to start off next week possibly into the 5-6’ range with light winds in the mornings (Mon-Wed)….if the swell models hold up, we will have a lot of fun next week. Stay tuned!
The water is 75 (!!!) so bareback will suffice today, but the water may drop with the upcoming south swell. Be prepared next week with a top or springsuit just in case is goes back down into the upper 60’s-low 70’s
