    Heavy surf

    We're leaving for the island tomorrow. I see on the Aruba weather site they're forecasting 6-12' seas Sunday and Monday. I realize that will be mostly on the northeast side of island, but maybe a little wave action on the stretch of beach by the Bucutti?

    Anyone on the island now that can comment if the waves are a little larger then normal??

    Not on the island, but from the live Bucuti webcams it looks like it may be raining.

    Don't know which forecast you are looking at, but the local forecast at http://www.meteo.aw/marine.php is calling for WAVE HEIGHT : 6 TO 9 FEET. Their wave model http://www.meteo.aw/model4.php is calling for 5 -7 feet. Bonaire and Curacao forecasts are for 3 - 6 feet waves. That is all for offshore waters.

    This model http://www.wunderground.com/MAR/wcm....wave&animate=1 is showing 4-5 feet.

    This http://www.swellinfo.com/surf-forecast/arashi-aruba surfer's site is calling for 1 - 2 feet (flat).

    FWIW, the water temperature is 78 f., same as it was when we left on the 2nd of January.
