Surf Report Comments

Monday:

7:oo am:   The surf looks a little smaller to start off the day. The wave height is thigh to waist high with some occ slightly larger set waves.  It’s a little lumpy and glassy this morning with light NW winds early.   (Local up to the minute wind info here) (marine forecast).  The Grays Reef Buoy is showing ground swell measurement of 2.3 feet at 10 seconds down from yesterdays 3 feet at 10.8 seconds.   Here is a look at the St. Augustine virtual buoy this morning.

8:00 am:   Early morning before sunrise photos are up in box #1 and you can see it’s a little smaller but there are still waves for your Martin Luther King holiday.    Some waves around waist high on the sets, maybe a little bigger.   A little lumpy but overall the form is good.

11:am:   The swell is dropping.   It’s semi-glassy to glassy but not seeing much size any more.   Still surfable on this holiday, but not seeing much over waist high as of report time.  I’ll go check the pier and take some photos, and report back….

The exceptionally mild mid-winter weather will continue, but what about waves? Dean looks well ahead for the next significant swell in the updated Surf Station Surf Forecast.
