Rincon, Puerto Rico Surf Forecast – Dec 31, 2016
Get ready for some real surf!
The Bahamas buoy registered a full day of NW swell and just about every weather chart confirms that the weather from the past couple of days will push a solid run waves at Rincon, Puerto Rico. NW swells tend to show up a little earlier than the models expect so I wouldn’t be surprised if we wake up to some overhead glass with double overhead sets tomorrow. What a way to start 2017! Most of the models were pegging the afternoon for the arrival time, but I really do think we’ll see it earlier now based on real-time data.
Don’t get yourself killed. The swell will be filling in strong and if we see double overhead or bigger conditions it will not be good for beginners. Either go to a tucked away and small spot or don’t get in the water unless you know what you’re doing. This is be the first big swell in a while and there is a lot of people on the island right now. Know your limits. Seriously.
Long term surf outlook for Rincon.
After Monday, the surf will drop down on Tuesday and turn back back to the usual NE to ENE wind swell by Wednesday and last through the rest of the forecast period. So if you’re looking for the big stuff make sure you surf tomorrow and Monday. Wednesday and beyond should still be pretty decent up North in the mornings. At the end of the forecast period models are trending on a long period NE kick back swell from this cold front. From it’s satellite presentation I would have to agree with this scenario so we might have a decent long period NE swell next weekend into next week.
