Surf Report Comments

Sunday:  

7:10 am:   The choppy surf continues as we start of this Sunday morning. The wave height is about waist to stomach high with poor form. The local pier data shows the wind is SSE @ 17-19 knots.  The local buoy is showing wind wave height measurements of 3.9 feet at 5.6 seconds changed from yesterdays  3 feet at 5 seconds .    The marine forecast calls for the wind to brisk SE  today.   (see up to the minute wind info here).

12:30 pm:   Wow the surf has increased since earlier.   A bit bigger than at daybreak with some waves around rib high or maybe even a little larger.   Very choppy and drifty with the brisk SSE winds up to 22 knots.

1:00 pm:   New photos are up in box #2 and you can see it is a little bigger.   Some rights pushing up the beach!   Ya will need to put up with the chop, but some of the rights may just be worth it.    The inside at the higher tide will likely be best…

Evening note:    8:15 pm:   Choppy surf continuing at dark.  Not much change .  Very windy and choppy!

So we will wait and see if it’s any bigger or better in the morning.. this will do it until then.. over and out..
