Rincon, Puerto Rico Surf Forecast – Dec 8, 2016
More shorter period swell on the way for surfing Puerto Rico.
Shorter period windswell is setting up to be the norm for this December. We have a steady flow of storms forecast to travel across the Northern Atlantic and the pattern that has occurred so far will persist through this next forecast period. For the weekend we should continue to see some waist to chest high shorter period wind swell at the most exposed breaks and smaller and glassier surf lessons and beginner waves at the tucked away west facing beaches. The funnest sessions might not be the cleanest sessions. If you can settle for less than perfect but empty line-ups you’ll have a lot more opportunities to catch a wave.
Next week’s swell should give us some fun surf!
Again, don’t expect the waves without the wind. At least the wind is currently forecast to be more easterly so early morning sessions should be clean and the bigger days will be super fun at the tucked away, west facing beaches. The initial pulse and biggest day of the coming week will probably be Monday. After that, the rest of the week looks like it will mimic the conditions of this weekend. We should stay with surf for the foreseeable future, but right no big swells are on the horizon. I’m reading a lot about the polar vortex shift and it’s influence on the current weather patterns. I’ll try and do a general blog post on what this could mean for the 2016/2017 surf season here in PR. Have fun and be nice out in the water.
