Surf Report Comments

Tuesday:

6:45 am: The waves have dropped in size overnight. It’s knee to occasionally up to waist high with fair form with semi-glassy conditions early this mornign. The wind is WSW @ 3-5 knots. The East Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 3.0 feet at 10 seconds down from yesterdays 4.6 feet at 5.9 seconds. You can see the ocean moving early on the SS HD Cam page.

7:45 am: Early morning photos are up in box #1 and you can see that if you wait around,there are some set waves to be found. Semi-glassy with some over thigh high set waves. A little longer wait than yesterday for the sets to come in. There are still waves…

9:25 am: Some fun waves at mid morning. Knee to waist high and really good for the longboard or fish as it’s rolling though at times. Mushy because it’s smaller, but still some waves to be had. A really nice sunny day at the beach.

12 pm: The surf is still holding right now around thigh to waist high with fair form. The waves are still rideable but it is pretty mushy. The wind is blowing in out of the SE @ 8 knots. The Canaveral buoy is showing a swell height of 2 feet @ 9.1 seconds from the ENE.

3:30 pm
: The surfing is looking smaller and choppier. Not near as good as earlier as the wind picks up onshore. Jesse will check it again this evening and we will see what it looks like then.

5:50 pm: The wind has picked up onshore out of the SSE at 13 knots this evening. There is small scale choppy surf in the thigh to occasionally waist high range. It doesn’t look great but you could definitely get a few rides on a longboard or fish. It looks like we might have a storm blow through so if you want to go out, you probably need to get on it now. New pics in box 3.

* It’s fun to look back at what just happened in Ma Ocean earlier today, yesterday, and in months, and even years gone by. All of our surf reports are now archived. Here are recent archived reports, and here is the website with photos from years gone by. Yesterday there were some fun surf & skim waves at Vilano.
