Surf Report Comments

Friday:

7:10 am:   The ESE swell of yesterday is gone and replaced by a new sweeping N swell.    (See pier data here and real time wind data from 3rd Street here). The East Canaveral Buoy, is showing 2.0 feet at 9.1 seconds , the same as yesterdays 2.0 feet at 9.1 seconds.  That is the underlying swell that is not showing up along the beach this morning. New N windwaves are on this buoy of 6 feet at 6 seconds.  You can see the ocean moving early on the Surf Station You Tube Cam page.

8:35 am:   Early morning photos are up in box #1 and you can see a new N swell is starting up. It’s cold at the beach this morning!   A windchill of 36 measured at the pier.  Brrrrr!  The good news is, the surf should increase today and into the weekend.

10:35 am:  The wind has clocked more sideonshore and increased, so it’s choppier now.   Choppier but the surf does seem to be on the increase

12:15 pm:  It’s looking choppier and more drifty now that the waves have moved to the outside with the lower tide. It’s cold and windy and not really looking worth it but if you wanna go I’d suggest a hood mostly for the wind. The size is up slightly to about stomach high and should continually increase throughout the day. New photos are up in box 2…

4:00 pm: It is cold at the beach! Windy, and blown out. Surf is around waist high, maybe pushing stomach high every now and then. Wind is out of the N @ 20 knots. Not looking inviting at all…
