Why did JSR make a South Florida Surf Report for Juno Pier?
Several South Florida Surf Reports are automatically created from NOAA buoy data, for us in Jupiter, it’s the Cape Canaveral and Lake Worth buoys. There is nothing wrong with apps and websites that collect the data, make an average, and display this information, because we use their info too (and have for a loooong time), but there are some problems with the system due to our unique position (the palm beach area jets out pretty far, about 30 miles more east than Cape Canaveral) which provides us sometimes with a stronger swell. Jupiter Surf Report (“JSR”) is the closest thing to actually going, with a daily gallery of surf photos at the Juno Pier. With this information provided on the best and worst of days by people and surfers that bring the human element to surf reporting, our visitors and followers will have the best and most consistent surf report resource in Palm Beach County.
