Surf Report Comments

Friday:

7:05 am:   Increasing N swell waves start out your Friday morning.  The waves size is 1-2 feet with fair to poor form.   The wind is cool to cold NNW @ 13-19 knots (Local up to the minute wind info here) with the marine forecast calling for N winds @ 20 knots today, ahead of the coming cold front.  The Grays Reef Buoy is showing a wave height measurement of 4 feet at 5 seconds up from yesterday’s 2.0 feet at 3 seconds.  Here is a look at the St. Augustine virtual buoy this morning.  New photos are coming up soon…

8:35 am:   Early morning photo are up in box #1 and you can see we have a new developing north swell.   It’s super chilly out early with cold northerly wind.

12:15 pm:    Choppier surf as we head into Friday afternoon.  The chilly sideshore winds have increased.     The surf is on the increase too.   New photos are up in box #2

4:45 pm: Rough day in terms of surf. Wind out of the N @ 20 knots, but the good news is that the surf has increased! It looks to be around waist to rib high so we should have some size for the weekend.

 

* Dog attack at the beach!   That’s what the lead in slider photo looks like this morning.   We are having a caption contest on the SS instagram as to what is going on 🙂
