Forecast Overview:

RIGHT NOW Surf Alert, but... 

With high pressure dominating the Western Atlantic and the remnants of Tropical Storm Bertha moving moving inland and north, we have a pattern of southerly wind that will continue through the pre-dawn hours on Saturday morning. 


SATURDAY: Surf Alert The current wind forecast shows the southerly wind pattern breaking at dawn then turning SW at dawn then WSW by mid to late morning (just in time for the tide switch). Spots in Monmouth and Northern Ocean County (NJ) should see fun surf through the day. Check out the 72 HOUR SURF FORECAST below for details.


SUNDAY: Another system will move offshore and wind turns NW early then NNW by mid to late morning. Long Island and select spots in Southern NJ should see small but fun surf. Tide will be an issue so timing your sessions is critical.   

Check out the 72 HOUR SURF FORECAST below for details.


NEXT WEEK: Surf Alert Small but longboardable leftovers on Monday. Tracking another system that should push another swell by midweek. I will keep you posted when data becomes more reliable. Stay tuned. 

Check out the 72 HOUR SURF FORECAST below for details.

The Good News: Still plenty of fun surf. We are still seeing fun surf and gradually warming air and water temps. We can expect a few solid swell events before the Summer Doldrums start in late Late June or Early July.  We are also seeing early season tropical systems. 

The Bad News: Wind issues and Fog. As the land mass warms up, the ocean is still pretty cold (56 degrees) so we can expect onshore wind and fog in the mornings. Monitor your local forecast and plan accordingly. 

THE X-FACTORS As we head into summer we will see a mix of swell events. Our region should see a few mid duration (1-2 days) swell events as well as plenty of hit and run, one-day-wonder swell events from locally-generated, fast-moving systems.


The North Pacific has plenty of energy and a few solid storms that should develop and move across the US, but these will slowly taper off as we head into Summer so those larger swell events will begin to become less frequent.

TODAY Surf Alert, but...

SATURDAY Surf Alert 

3-4ft S and SE windswell with SSW wind before dawn.

Wind forecast to turn WSW by late morning. Long Island will see poor form (wind issues). Southern NJ will see cleaner conditions when the wind turns more westerly. Swell drops and wind turns SE in the arvo. 

NJ Fun surf further north for the dawn patrol. Southern NJ will see onshore or sideshore wind early but some spots should clean up by mid to late morning as the wind turns more W. 

NY Poor surf with onshore wind early. Wind turns sideshore/onshore by late morning.
