Surf Report Comments

Saturday:

6:55 am: Waves have increased this morning, its about waist to chest high with fair to poor form with choppy conditions. There were some larger set waves around head high, but the wind is really on it today. The wind is blowing in out of the SSE @ 15-17 knots. The East Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 4.6 feet at 6.2 seconds from the East. You can see the ocean moving early on the SS HD Cam page.

 

9:15 am: Onshore winds and choppy surf. The good news is, it is bigger than yesterday. There is finally some punch to it, with a little power too. Overcast at the beach but that shouldn’t stop those who have yearned for a break in the small scale surf. It will be fun for those that don’t mind putting up with a little chop and slop.

10:00 am: Passing heavy rain at the beach. All of a sudden it’s raining super hard at the beach. Will it help the surf after the rain? Glass it off? We will see…

12:15 pm
: After the rain we got a temporary smooth off. Still lumpy and unorganized but the form did improve. The wind seems lighter now, although it is still onshore. Onshore so still somewhat mixed up and choppy but there are some occasional fun looking waves. Check the new photos in box #2.

6:45 pm: The surf improved dramatically late this afternoon and into the early evening. Some very fun waves! It’s so much bigger than it has been, and the form has improved after the rain. Check the new photos in box #3. Some lined up lefts and rights that are workable from the outside all the way through to the inside. The water temperature is over 84 degrees so the cloudcover is not a problem.

And its will do it until early-early in the morning. Over and out…

* 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.
