Rincon, Puerto Rico Surf Forecast – June 28, 2018
Summer swell on the way for surfing Rincon, Puerto Rico.
A weak front will pull of the states with enough force to push some small waves at Rincon, Puerto Rico. The irony is that the entire island should have waves this weekend. The south should continue to see tropical swell from the non-stop chain of tropical waves pumping off Africa and crossing the ITCZ. Here in Rincon expect to see some waist to chest high sets at the most exposed breaks during the peak of the swell on Saturday. I wouldn’t get too jumpy about Friday or Saturday. Don’t get me wrong, a surprise early arrival and extended stay would be awesome. I just don’t see it happening. Conditions will most likely fade out to flat by Sunday evening. Other parts of the island will continue to see small to medium tropical swell throughout the week.
The earth is acting a bit strange.
This wouldn’t be a thorough forecast without mentioning the weird weather pattern we’re seeing right now. We have a cold-front pulling off the states and non-stop tropical waves passing in the Caribbean. It’s as if neither winter nor summer want to take a break. The Pacific is hurricane fest and extremely hot. Definitely summer over there. But here, the Atlantic doesn’t know what it wants out of life. It’s like to be hot, it likes to be cold, it doesn’t like to push swell at Puerto Rico, but it will when it feels like it… I guess it all doesn’t really matter as long as we get to surf. That being said, being willing to explore the south coast of the island might pay off if you know where to look.
