Surf Report Comments


7:10 am:   The solid groundswell of yesterday has been beaten down overnight by strong cold offshore winds.   (See pier data here and real time wind data from 3rd Street here). The East Canaveral Buoy, is showing groundswell of 4.9 feet at 13.8 seconds down from yesterdays 13.8 feet at 12.9 seconds.   You can see the ocean moving early on the Surf Station You Tube Cam page.

7:45 am:  Early morning photos are up in box #1 and you can see the waves are much smaller than yesterday.  At times the ocean looks as if it’s blown flat, but then a set wave will put through around the 2 foot range!  Still some way spread out groundswell offshore, with some up to 18 second intervals!    This is a thicker wave with all that space between it and the next wave.   But with the hard offshores blowing into it, it can get beaten down by the wind.  For example, the Grays Reef Buoy had 2.6 second groundswells yesterday at 13.8 seconds, this morning they are beaten down to .07 feet at 10 seconds.

12:30 pm:   The waves are really taking a beating from that offshore wind. The waves are about knee to up to thigh high with fair to good form, the waves are closing out a little quick and it is really windy at report time. The wind is blowing in from the West @ 20-27 knots right now. The Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 3.3 feet @ 14.8 seconds from the NE. *Photos from yesterday,Monday Afternoon, are in box 4

4:50 pm: The wind is still howling offshore this evening. It is blowing out of the West at 22 knots and gusting up to 30. The waves are still in the knee to thigh high range with the wind blowing tons of spray off of them. It is semi clean, but the waves are breaking really fast and not looking very rideable. New photos in box 3.



Night time note from yesterday left up:

* So we ran out of boxes.   4 rounds of photos of today’s surf were not enough.  So we posted 40 more evening photos on the Surf Station Facebook page, check them out : )
