Surf Report Comments


6:45 am:     The waves look large in size like yesterday.  Real early it looks a little smaller but based on the buoy readings, it may be every bit as big.    The wind is sideonshore but lighter than yesterday at this time @ 7-8 knots, with the marine forecast calling for N winds @ 15 knots today. (See pier data here and real time wind data from 3rd Street here). The East Canaveral Buoy is showing groundswell of 9.8 feet at 10 seconds up from yesterdays 7.2 feet at 10.8 seconds.      You can see the ocean moving early on the SS HD Cam page.

7:20 am:   Early morning photos are up in box #1 and you can see there are some fun looking waves at sunrise.    Yes it’s lumpy and not super clean, but it has size and it’s not too messy or blown out.  The inside high tide spots could be fun, and some waves are breaking outside and rolling through at key spots.

9:15 am:     Lumpy and still somewhat disorganized as we head into mid morning. The wind is light NNE .  Not so light that it’s clean, but not too strong that it’s real choppy.  Semi-choppy and a little crossed up but still some good sized waves sliding through at times.   The higher tide will make it somewhat hard to find the right spot.  We may see improvement as the tide drops as the day goes on, providing the wind does not pick up too much.

1:15 pm:   The surf has improved as the wind has lightened up.   Strong swell with now not so super choppy conditions.   It’s even becoming semi-glassy at times.   New photos are up in box #2 and you can see some fun waves are awaiting… 

3:30 pm:  It’s looking a bit cleaner than the last report as we head into the late afternoon/early evening. The tide has gotten low letting the waves transition more to the outside. At the right sandbars it was looking you could find some pretty fun waves out there, though it was still looking a little bumpy overall with the extreme tides of the last few days. New photos are up in box 3
