Rincon, Puerto Rico Surf Forecast – Mar 14, 2016
Long Period Swell on the way! Get Ready to Surf!
I held off on updating this forecast as long as could. Why? Because I didn’t want to get everyone’s hopes up only to be let down. That possibility still exists, but I can’t hold this in any longer! We’re looking at a solid run of long period NE swell with light winds. We’re talking a possible five straight days of perfection just about everywhere. When the possibility exists for conditions to get this good, the disappointment can be devastating if things don’t play out as anticipated. So take the following with the knowledge that nothing concrete is on the buoys just yet. Under the current forecast, the north side of the island should be a couple feet overhead or bigger with looooong lines and barrels at the most exposed breaks. Other spots up there should be going off as well. Rincon will be smaller, but still fun. I’m expecting around head high with some bigger sets and really long lines. Just about everywhere should be glassy in the morning, and Rincon should stay glassy most of the day at west facing spots.
Here’s how i see it playing out:
Tuesday: Small to flat in Rincon with some longboard and learner waves. Outside buoys should see long period swell as confirmation for things to come.
Wednesday: Still small here in Rincon – maybe waist high.
Thursday: Swell finally builds through the day to chest to head high and super glassy conditions.
Friday: Head high with bigger sets and a bit of a wait between sets and super glassy conditions.
Saturday: Perfect waves for the Volcom Contest! Head high with bigger sets and super glassy conditions. Random lulls off and on.
Sunday: Chest to head high and glassy.
Monday: Waist to chest high and glassy.
