Rincon, Puerto Rico Surf Forecast – Jan 12, 2015
January 19th-21st Next Possible Swell – Knee to Waist Until Then
It kind of stinks that the entire forecast can be summed up in that one sentence, but it’s true. From now through Sunday, Rincon will have knee to waist high surf with clean conditions in the morning and horrible wind chop in the afternoons. Some days might just be barely surf lessonable knee high sets. Next week however will see some swell. Right now it’s looking like a head high swell for a couple of days (which is fun) starting next Monday. The GFS has been going bonkers with the 21st through the 24th on just about every run. The actual system changes each time, but it keeps putting something noticeable around that time. That’s the next date range to hope for something big again.
This past swell was super fun!
This past swell was a perfect reminder of a common winter time swell for Rincon, Puerto Rico. We used to see swells like this every week (sometimes twice a week). When the swell has a little bit of west in it, we tend to see the surf show up a little earlier and last a little longer than the one and done NE swells. Granted we really only had one big day with that past storm, but there was something to surf all weekend and even today. That was good. This January is not doing well in comparison to other years. I hope that changes and we start to get more consistent surf. When we get more consistent runs of swell, the vibe is so much more positive, there’s more opportunities to surf without a million people, and this is a great place to be.
