It literally sucks in Miami. We have about 5 windless months. A storm comes by, and there is wind everywhere but down here. I cannot believe it.

Florida wind all around is pretty fluky, but if you don't mind driving there is usually wind to be had. Look at the pro, you are pretty damn close to the keys. It seems wind is always on the day you have something to do, when I was working we rarely got sat/sun wind and now I go to school 1 day a week and of course its windy on the day I had a test. Cocoa looks like the only place to get decent wind tomorrow but the reports are fluky and it has gone from the 20's to 8-15 mph right now, yet Melbourne and Sebastian are in the 20's, weird.

Haha it feels better to see that I'm not alone. The wind picked up in the after, but yes, I had school.

Hello Drew..Cristobal is a slow mover which is good for us and has now minimal hurricane status
Cocoa Beach was real good yesterday with head high + waves face sets many times near 5th street
Was windy enough for me to be on a 10 with surfboard....my wife killed it using her surfboard w/8
Today looks just about the same...Side-on NE 17-20 + mph
:surf: :sun:
