Actually Ricki this is the most wind I have seen on my holiday trip 17th-29th, ever! I rode almost every night under that moon between Lauderdale pier and Pompano pier only I think it was two or three nights it didn't blow. I choose not to go to far out usually the swim buoy because I alway feel like shark bait and I use extra flotation for that " JUST IN CASE" moment . Now the other night (28th) was spectacular, the moon didn't come out till 12:40 and when it did was a deep, dark yellow. I finished up that night with a down winder from Lauderdale to 16th, fricken awesome. I returned back to Chicago with a HUGE smile can't wait to come back in Feburary. For now I will have to settle with Lake Michigan which tomorrow when I go to Miller Beach in Gary IN will be 29F 20kt gusting to 25kt with a water temperature of low 40's REFRESHING WOOHOOO!!! Hold down the fort till I get back...

Glad you had a good trip with wind! Sounds like some intense dry suit weather back home. Stay warm and safe and see you back down here in February.

No wind to speak of, fog as of 8 am but there seems to some nice swells. At least there was when things were under fog. Good for surfing, SUP in the waves or sponging. Here's shots from Jupiter and southern Palm Beach County:

A bit late but was that GREAT wind or what yesterday afternoon. I was able to go out late for a couple of hours. Had good close side shore wind away from the beach and landshadow boosting into the mid 20's or so. Wore a good full wetsuit so cold wasn't an issue. It sure was nice not to be underpowered for a change. Who else got some?

Nice wind run for several days through the weekend. Looks like more rideable wind on and off through the week. It is feeling more like a "normal" wind season this week, here's to it!

Rare good rideable wind is up, SE to SSE in the mid to upper teen mph range. Go grab some if you can!
