Surf Report Comments

Saturday:    

6:35 am:   The waves looglassy and similar in size to yesterday to start off your Saturfday morning. The wave height looks about knee to thigh high early.   The wind is SW at 6 knots.  You can check the (pier data) for wind data & water temp. The local buoy is showing wind wave height measurement of 2.0 feet at 10 seconds up from yesterday 1.6 feet at 8 seconds  The marine forecast calls for the wind to be west then SE today.   (see up to the minute wind info here)..

7:35 am:   On second look it definitely is bigger than yesterday.   The groundswell Dean forecasted for today is happening as forecast.   Light offshore winds and 1-2+ glassy surf.   Nothing great, but for historically near flat July it is.   I updated the text data to show the increase.  It’s going to be a fun surf Saturday!
