Surf Report Comments
6:50 am: The surf looks very small early on this Saturday morning. Wave height about shin to knee high. It has fair form with the wind light onshore out of the E @ 2-5 knots. The marine forecast calls for the wind to be SE winds at 10-15 knots today (See pier data here and real time wind data from 3rd Street here). The East Canaveral Buoy, is showing swells of 1.6 feet at 10 seconds, down from yesterdays 2.3 feet at 10 seconds. You can see the ocean moving early on the Surf Station You Tube Cam page.
9:25 am: Although overall very small surf. When there are some 9 and 10 second readings on the buoys offshore usually that means at times there will be some set waves. Some knee high rollers at some spots. The trick is finding the right sandbar so it doesn’t close out. And with the wind onshore, it’s not glassy but semi-choppy. Saw a few guys heading toward the beach with the SUP.
12:05 pm: Small scale semi-choppy waves as we head into Saturday afternoon. You can see overall is quite small in the new photos in box #2. I tried to get real low and make it look bigger, but there is not much denying the waves are about a 1/2 a foot to 1 foot, and that’s about it….
* The small, marginally rideable (longboard or grom on fish) trend continues through the weekend. Dean’s Surf Station Surf Forecast chronicles the GI Joe weekend to end April, then looks ahead forecasting improvement in May.
* Lots of surfboards for sale direct. Here is the link to the Surf Station’s Buy and Sell page.
