Surf Report Comments

Tuesday:

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.

 

 

 

 

Night time note from yesterday left up:

More Info

* The strong (979 mb!) winter low that formed off the east coast is departing, so smaller surf.   Check out Dean’s latest update to the Surf Station Surf Forecast for call.

* The Buy and Sell section has surfboards for sale or trade, direct with other surfers.  Here is the link .
