Fort Pierce was rocking... We had a nice turn out. Check the chart but I think it was in the mid 20s and gust in the 30s. Finally got to use my 7m. :lol:

Did you have good swells to go with? If so must have been an epic session. Had a good one down here although the wind was gusting to about 20 mph and hanging in the mid to low teens. Wonder how Miami did? Perhaps all the SE got some good wind today.

The waves were not quite as epic. Although right before we all left, there was a thunderstorm that was just arriving and it did bring some nicer waves.

Too funny, you just beat me to it. I thought it was supposed to be offshore today. That is still coming later on this afternoon per the PBC forecast. It looks great for now. Watch out for the afternoon side offshore shift. Guys have sent boards drifting up to OBX by getting caught out. I'll have to miss out on this one so get some extra shredding in for me.

Yes indeed, just like old times. Hope someone grabbed the wind on Friday and Saturday. I had to sit this one out unfortunately. Hope some useable wind comes through this week. May is hanging in there.

Sounds good. Just stopped by the beach in Boca Raton about an hour ago. The wind was sideshore out of the south, 13 mph gusting to around 16 mph. Looking at the clear sky, I think it might grow stronger with thermals as the afternoon goes on. Of course there is a front inbound and the wind should shift side offshore from the SW sometime today/tonight per NWS. Grab it while you can and watch out for the offshore shift.
