Rincon Puerto Rico Surf Forecast – July 28, 2016
Weather patterns are on constant repeat – no surf for Rincon, Puerto Rico.
I haven’t updated the forecast in a long while. It’s because it was exactly the same every single day. The same weak low’s would pull of the states, the same endless tropical waves would pull off Africa, and the same surf forecast would watch them all dissipate and disintegrate into nothing the closer they got to Puerto Rico. It seemed like whenever anything would ever get close to our swell window it would disappear. We would get tiny background swells that were perfect for pushing little kids and first timers for surf lessons, but not much for anyone else. Will it continue to do this? Yes. However, statistically speaking we should see some tropical systems start to form in September and as early as late August. We have had no shortage of tropical waves. In that sense we’ve had a very active season so far with plenty of tropical possibilities, but none of them have materialized into anything for surfing here in Rincon. The southeast corner of Puerto Rico has seemed to be having a great summer with several days around chest high over there. The north side of the island has had plenty of waist high weak windswell so far. Rincon has just remained hot and tiny. I’ll have a separate post up soon with how I’ve managed to keep my sanity over the past couple of months.
