Rincon, Puerto Rico Surf Forecast – Feb 14, 2017
Massive winter storm: major swell event for Rincon, Puerto Rico.
This storm is a beast! Look at all that wind field! It’s beautiful! I am so amped looking at the graphical representation of the winds this morning. Looking at the pressure chart is impressive too. This swell is going to crank for several days. We should see the first arrival on Wednesday afternoon or evening with some south winds on Wednesday and Thursday. This means that north facing beaches will be all time on these two days. This also means that there will be several spots working that normally get blown out right away. Your chances of surfing with a light crowd are very high if you know where to go. If you cram into the same exact peak as everyone else that’s on you. That being said, remember too that this is a major swell and we will see sets in the double overhead range and possibly bigger. If it’s out of your skill level don’t paddle out. If you see someone in trouble, help them if you can. Please be safe!
Early Weekend Outlook:
We should continue with head high surf through the weekend. The swell angle is supposed to remain out of the NW and even though the period drops a little, the NW angle hits Rincon and several other parts of Puerto Rico very well. I don’t anticipate it getting any smaller than waist to chest and just about every day should still have head high sets.
