Surf Report Comments
7:00 am: The surf looks a tad bigger than yesterday morning at this time. The wave height early looks about knee to thigh high on inconsistent set waves. It’s semi-glassy this morning with SSW winds early. The marine forecast calls for brisk S winds today, ahead of a strong cold front. (Local up to the minute wind info here). The Grays Reef Buoy is showing ground swell measurement of 1.6 feet at 12.9 seconds up in duration form yesterdays 1.6 feet at 10 seconds. Here is a look at the St. Augustine virtual buoy this morning.
8:30 am: A second round of photos are up in box #2 and you can see some occasional set waves! Bigger than yesterday. Some waves bring on the outside sandbar as the tide continues to drop. What the pictures down show is how inconsistent it is. Ya really have to wait on those larger set waves. In between there is near nothing. It’s semi-glassy with a light to moderate side offshore SSW wind.
9:00 am: Some video from a little earlier:
1:45 pm: Afternoon photos are up in box #3 and you can see it’s windier than earlier so the form is not as good. A few freak waves but so inconsistent on those larger set waves they are super hard to be in the right spot at the right time to catch one. Not may surfers out…
5:45 pm: The wind lighted up as we got closer to dark so the surf became less blown out. It even got semi-glassy at times as you can see in the new photos in box #4. Looks like the size is about the same. Maybe it will hang around for tomorrow?
So on that hopeful note… outta here. Next update will be with Lance early early tomorrow morning.. over and out…
* So what happened to the parking lot at FA? It’s closed, and there is a letter in asking what’s going on. See it here.
The exceptionally mild mid-winter weather will continue into the start of the weekend, but what about the waves? Dean details looks ahead in the lastest Surf Station Surf Forecast.
