Surf Report Comments

Thursday:

6:40 am: The waves have dropped in size some more overnight. It’s about knee high with fair form early.  It’s semi-glassy to glassy early  with the wind is SW @ 3-4 knots. The East Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 1.6 feet at 9.1 seconds, down from yesterdays 2.0 feet at 9.1 seconds.  You can see the ocean moving early on the SS HD Cam page.

7:15 am:   Early morning photos are up in box #1 and you can see there are still some occasional lines breaking left and right.  Glassy and fairly lined up, but small overall.   It’s inconsistent, but if you wait around ling enough there are some longboardable lines to be had.

11:45 am: It’s still glassy with offshore winds at mid-day though the wind is predicted to switch onshore this afternoon. With the incoming tide it is looking like there is a slight push in size, but its still only looking like it will work for a longboard. New photos are up in box 2..

5:40 pm: Very small surf this evening in the shin to knee high range. The wind is light out of the East at 4 knots creating semi clean surface conditions. It is not looking very rideable at the moment and breaking right on the beach.

* Dean lays out the downward direction our local surf will take (Erika take II?), detailing a reversal in the downward trend over the holiday weekend,  calling for a new NE/E swell peaking in size on Labor Day in the SS forecast.

* On the Surf Station Letters page:  A surfer is mad we sell beer and tells us so!  We edited his letter with #’s for the cursive language, and Tory responds.
