Rincon, Puerto Rico Surf Forecast – June 14, 2019
Nonstop Tropical Waves – Small Surf Possible in Rincon.
We have a lot of open waves coming off of Africa already. Though conditions over the Caribbean and Atlantic are not currently favorable for anything major to happen, some possibilities for small surf will be created over the next 7 to 10 days. The southeast corner of the island is normally the summer spot to be and this coming week will be no exception. The passing of open waves generally gives exposed breaks a little waist to chest high wave. Some spots on the north side of the island could see surf of the same size as well. The waves are all moving from East to West so Rincon will be a bit more tucked away. However, having an open wave sit right on top of us has generally stirred up the ocean enough to see some waist high lines in Rincon in the past. On a low to incoming tide we might see some fun surf lessons waves over the weekend and into early next week.
The ocean won’t always be unfavorable for Tropical Cyclone development.
Tropical waves have been numerous this year since early spring. Just because our current weather setup is unfavorable for their development at the moment doesn’t mean we’re in the clear. Eventually, something will change. It is a good time to make sure you have all of your preparations for this year’s hurricane season now instead of when we get a named storm with the island in the 5 day cone. For now, I’m just seeing all these open tropical waves as surfing opportunities.
