Surf Report Comments

Wednesday:

6:40 am: The waves have dropped in size some more overnight. It’s knee to occasionally thigh high with fair form early.  It’s semi-glassy early  with the wind is SSW @ 3-7 knots. The East Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 2.0 feet at 9.1 seconds, down from yesterdays  3.0 feet at 10 seconds.  You can see the ocean moving early on the SS HD Cam page.

9:15 am:   The waves are definitely smaller than yesterday.   Weak and mushy and dropping.  It’s even smaller than the dawn patrol report.  Overcast at the beach…

2:15 pm:   Looking smaller as the day goes on.   It’s small and choppy now.   The wind is SSE and has picked up some.   A not bad beach day but not a good surf day…

4:50 pm: Small surf this afternoon in the shin to knee high range. The wind is onshore out of the ENE at 6 at 6 knots creating semi choppy conditions. It is crumbling on the outside and breaking right on the beach on the inside. It is not looking very rideable. New photos in box 2.

* Dean lays out the downward direction our local surf takes this week, followed by a reversal in the trend over the upcoming holiday weekend,  calling for a new NE swell building through Labor Day in the SS forecast.

* Buy and sell surfboards and misc. direct with other surfers. Here is the link: http://www.surf-station.com/community/

* It’s fun to look back at what just happened in Ma Ocean earlier today, yesterday, and in months, and even years gone by. All of our surf reports are now archived. Here are recent archived reports, and here is the website with photos from years gone by. Yesterday there were some fun surf & skim waves at Vilano.
