Surf Report Comments

Wednesday:    

7:05 am:  Looks smaller  The wave height looks flat to up to 1 foot.   It’s glassy with the wind offshore W early.   The local buoy is showing swell height of 1.6 feet at 10 seconds, down form yesterdays  2.6 feet at 9 seconds.  The marine forecast calls for the wind to be W, then SE this afternoon. (see up to the minute wind info here)..

 8:25 am:   Very very small lines.  A foot or less.  A hurricane at sea and it’s this small?   Hurricanes do not send waves behind the direction they are going (unless they stall or stop) and Hurricane Gert is racing away.   Europe will get waves

1:40 pm:   Some 11 second readings on the local buoy.  But the wave size is around 1 foot on the buoy.  So some occasional 1 foot set waves along the beach, but that is about it.   Light onshore winds….

2:30 pm:  Some photos are up in box #3.   You can see how really small it is now

7:30 pm:   Looked real close to flat as it’s getting dark.  Nearly no surf.  Onshore winds and choppy too.

So we will wait until we see what tomorrow bring… over and out..

New from Surf Station Media:   Did you see this?   Some really good local longboard footage!   Filmed recently here in St. Augustine

More Info

Departing Hurricane Gert strengthened to late to deliver a decent ground swell, but her re-curving path in our swell window was a good sign as the 2017 ‘cane season progresses. Dean’s Surf Station Surf Forecast takes a look ahead to next week with 3 systems “congo” line up in the tropical Atlantic.
