Surf Report Comments

Friday:

6:50 am: The waves are starting Similar in size to the past couple of days early on the is Friday morning . It’s glassy early with waves 1 to occasionally 2 feet on inconsistent set waves. The wind is west @ 3-5 knots. The East Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 2.3 feet at 8.3 seconds, down from yesterdays 2.6 feet at 10 seconds. You can see the ocean moving early on the SS HD Cam page.

9:15 am
: The dawn patrol session was fun (see morning photos in box #1) but since then Ma Ocean has lulled a little. Not seeing those over waist high set waves that were there for a while. Hopefully they will return. At report time, with the tide going out, we are already sort of ‘in between tides’ and with the waves closing out on the inside. Some spots may see improvement as the tide backs out though. We need to hope the forecast onshore winds hold off as long as they can….

11:30 am: The wind has picked up a bit making the waves look a bit more textured. They are still looking rideable though with some of those sets around waist high at the right spots. The wind is predicted to increase throughout the day but go straight onshore so it shouldn’t get too choppy. New photos are up in box 2…

5:00 pm:  The wind has increased once again making it nice and choppy out there with some minimal thigh high sets. It is surfable if you want to get wet. It should glass off  and be about the same size again for the early morning tomorrow, so you might just want to wait. New photos are up in box 2…
