Palm Beach Surf Forecast, Updated local surf forecast for SE Florida

Updated: May 4, 2016 - First, For those who haven't heard, My buddy is still missing in the Dominican Republic.  It's been a while now.  His board was still in the rental house when he went missing, and some clothes.  His surf buddy left early and took his board and computer back to Florida.  He was last seen either at a surf shop in Cabarete or at the beach bar called Eze January 27th evening. His wallet with money and credit cards were found in the water recently in the same area as the beach bar.  Please if you know anyone down there share this information so everyone can be on the lookout for him. There is a massive search going on right now.  Although his board was found in the rental, nothing can be ruled out at this time.  He could be on land or in the water. With this amount of time that has gone by let's hope the water. All leads so far have been exhausted.

Now they need help with the costs, Check out the GOFUNDME page:

Surf forecast for the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast.

REWIND:  We didn't really get much the last few days.  Monday morning had a fun waist high wave but it died out through the day.


Strong cold front with a huge mid level low in the east. Upper level disturbance swinging through today enhancing severe weather threat across the state.  Front will move through overnight/early Thursday then a reinforcing front late Thursday/Friday.  West and then NW winds will pick up quite a bit behind the front.  There is a possibility for a refraction swell late Thursday and/or Friday.  It's a tough call right now though, but worth a check. If it happens I don't think it'll be anything huge. Waist high, maybe chest high at best. It would be nice to get a late season Refraction swell in here though!  Refraction swells are tricky and this is not a perfect set up.  It's our best bet for the next few days though.


THURSDAY: Flat in the morning.  Maybe a waist high or so north swell building in the afternoon. Wind NW 20-25kts.

FRIDAY: Possible building refraction swell waist to maybe chest high.  Wind NW 20kts

SATURDAY: Going flat. Maybe some leftovers in the morning. Wind NW 5-15kts.

SUNDAY-MONDAY: Flat. light wind.


 Onshore winds pick up Tuesday and so will the windchop.   Stay tuned!
