Surf Report Comments

Wednesday:

7:15 am:  Some groundswells showing on the buoys offshore has the waves size lookings about 1 to occasionally 2 feet.    The surface conditions are super glassy early with the waves having very good to excellent form.   The wind is light WSW @ 5-7 knots as of report time.  The marine forecast is calling for offshore winds today.  (See real time wind data from 3rd Street here). The Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 2.3 feet at 9.1 seconds, the same as  2.3 feet at 9.1 seconds , but there are some 12 seconds readings showing.     You can see the ocean moving on the Surf Station Cam.  New early photos coming up soon…

8:15 am:   Early morning photos are up in box #1 and yes there are some really sweet looking groundswells rolling in.   It’s very inconsistent but as you can see in the pictures, when the set waves come they are super glassy, lined up, and peeling left ands right (at times).  Yesterday, the best waves were in the morning around the higher tide, and looks like it will be like that again today…

 

 

* Yes we have photos from Sunday that are still unseen but before we post them we found MORE B roll photos from Saturday and here they are posted on the Surf Station Facebook page.

 *  Dean’s Surf Station Forecast looks ahead, suggesting a cold front dropping down from the north and a hurricane coming up from the south will combine to ramp up surf size in early October.
