DAY 1: 2018 Monster Energy Belmar Pro
Aaaannnnnd once again the “surf gods”, Mother Nature, King Neptune, cosmic luck, “Don’s Luck”, whatever you want to call it, for Day 1 it came through with some “contestable” yet NE onshore surf popped up due to an incoming low front and increasing NE winds. We were able to make it through to Round 1 / Heat 16 before the deep high tide and stiffening onshores got the best of it. … We will resume at 9:00 am tomorrow morning with Mens Round 2 Heat 1, see ya there!
Saturday 9/8 Forecast:
Low Tide: 12:29pm / High Tide: 6:56pm
More of the same as we saw today with waist to chest high ESE ground swell mixed with some NE windswell. The swell will be coming from the ESE in the morning and shift to the E during the day. Conditions will be sideshore with North winds 10-15mph in the morning shifting NE at 15-20mph in the afternoon. Surf expected to build significantly during Finals day. Stay tuned for updates!
