Wow…the big Nasty is hear…but wait…late will be great for Paddle Boarding head high surf! Sunrise brought 25knot North Westerly Wind with head high surf…but as usual, this “clearing wind ” will fade quickly through out the day. There is a 64% chance of super SUP wave action as we near Sunset. Notice in the images below that the Swell (Amber in color) is hours away form Kite Beach Cabarete and a HUGE Low Pressure System is charging off the Coast of Florida. this means that there will be good SUP action for the next 52 hours…then we will get back into a “clearing Wind” situation with a strong possibility of another AM Kite trip to Cabarete…
Slow lift…this big Low Pressure System (white n blue in color) is slowly lifting North West which gives Kite Beach Cabarete small flat waves, light rain, cloud cover and AC like temperatures. The Swell (amber in color) is just hitting Havana now and is a day away from hitting Kite Beach Cabarete. The Swell (Amber color) seems to have more West that North in it which does not work so well for us here on Kite Beach Cabarete because Cuba, Florida and the Bahamas catch or block most of the swell moving West to East. The good news is that there should be a nice swell Thursday Morning with lite winds…so let´s paddle Kite Beach Cabarete
Wana make a Paddle or Surf board turn? Step back! Stability comes from a wide stance, a turny board comes from a narrow stance. Most wave riders can move the back foot back, but struggle to slide the front foot back…if you want to make a board turn…get the front foot back
My favorite time to paddle board is in a lite rain. Of course sunny and windy days are fun also…so come on…let´s paddle board the SUP Lagoon, Kite Beach Cabarete
Here is how Big Winter Storms roll in North America and the Caribbean…they
1. move West to East
2. throw Huge Surf on the reefs of Hawaii
3. blanket the Mountains with snow
4. put the Midwest and North East into Deep Freeze
5. bring Massive Surf, Wind and rain to the Caribbean
So Hawaii is getting big surf right now…look for big wave action here in 7 days (notice the map at the 180 hour mark). If anyone wants to learn how to paddle board small waves…this is the time…not next week…let me know!
Record snow and cold grip North America as Big Winter Storms Race across the Continent. In 2012 and 13, these big storms had a more West to East Pattern. This pattern brings lots of wind to Kite Beach Cabarete and very little surf. This year the storms are taking a more normal North West to South East path, the result of this is more Surf, Off Shore Winds and Rain…Waterman Weather. Notice in the photo below how the Big Winter Storm is pushing well South of Bermuda all the way to the Dominican Republic. Look for nice family Surf early mornings giving way to solid Trade Winds through next week. Early next week the next Big Low should hit bringing Big Wave SUP and Kite action to the North Coast, Domincan Republic.
A little bump from a week Tropical Storm and the manana, then a big Winter Blast late this weekend and early into next week. This Storm is moving South of Bermuda so expect Big Waves, Big Rain and possibly Big Wind…in the attached photo notice the Large Low Pressure system hitting New York as we speak. So look for strong Trade winds to reappear Friday and Saturday then look for Big Sunday Paddle Boarding.
