Surf Report Comments

Wednesday:

6:55 am:   The surf looks larger early on this Wednesday morning. The wave height is up to knee to waist high with choppy conditions. The wind is  from the E @ 15-16 knots early with the marine forecast calling for the wind to be NE @ 10-15 knots today (See and real time wind data from 3rd Street here).  The East Canaveral buoy has gone adrift so we are reporting the inside Canaveral Buoy and it is 1.6 feet at 5 seconds up slightly from yesterdays  1.0 feet at 8 seconds this morning.    You can see the ocean moving on the Surf Station Cam.

7:55 am:  Early morning photos are up and you can see that the flat spell is over!   Choppy mixed up surf but at least there is surf.   I’m watching it increase each 10 minutes or so. Every 10 minutes looks bigger than the  previous 10 minutes…

9:45 am:   The surf continues to increase. Looks bigger than earlier with waves thigh to waist high with some peaks around rib high.  Choppy and messy with the brisk onshore wind.   The surf is on the increase

1:00 pm: The size has increased again with most waves around knee to waist, with larger sets around chest high. Most are closing out and it’s choppy but it looks better than it has in weeks, it could be worth checking our especially before the tide gets too low later this afternoon. New photos are up in box 2…

5:00 pm: The surf looks to have leveled off with the out going tide. Still the same size as earlier, and same conditions. Right now it looks to be around waist to stomach high with some occ. larger sets along with strong NNE winds at around 17 knots.

More Info

*   Dean’s Surf Station Surf Forecast calls for surf building Wednesday, starting a week-long run of waves from several swell sources in the Atlantic, caped off by (potentially Major Hurricane) Gaston’s ground swell next week. The track and intensity of Invest 99L will be the wild card.
