Surf Report Comments
6:20 am: The surf looks small early on this Tuesday morning. The wave height knee to occasionally thigh high with fair to good form. The wind is SW @ 2-5 knots, the marine forecast is calling for the wind to be SW early then SE this afternoon (See and real time wind data from 3rd Street here). The East Canaveral Buoy, is showing groundswell of 2.3 feet at 8.3 seconds, the same as yesterdays 2.3 feet at 8.3 seconds .
7:35 am: You can see it’s glassy in the early morning photos are up in box #1 and with the outgoing time it will be hard to find the right sandbar. Low tide is at 9 am. Look for places were the outside sandbar is closer to the beach, as the swell is quite small. Surf spots where the outside sandbar is far out may not be breaking, as the swell is too small overall. The exception of course is inlets were far outside at low tide you can find some fun waves, if you don’t mind the sharkeyness. Part of the fun on small summer days, is the search.
2:00 pm: The surf got fun key spots as the tide pushed in late morning, while it was glassy. Then the wind came onshore and it’s getting some surface chop. So not as good, but the tide is still pushing in and key spots could have some fun high tide waves. It will be semi-choppy or choppy though with the onshore wind.
misc: Our wavecam is down, and broken. We have ordered a new one.
- Marginally rideable waves to start the work week will trend even smaller during the heart of the work week. Will we see improvement leading into the 4th of July? See the tropical weather discussion in Dean’s extended Surf Station Surf Forecast for ideas.
