Surf Report Comments

Monday:

7:00 am:   Some solid groundswell early on this Monday morning.  The wind is offshore west @ 6-8 knots causing clean conditions (See pier data here and real time wind data from 3rd Street here). The East Canaveral Buoy, is showing groundswell @ 13.8 feet at 12.9 seconds changed from yesterdays waves of 8.2 feet at 7.1 seconds  You can see the ocean moving early on the Surf Station You Tube Cam page.

8:30 am:   Early morning photos are up in box #1 and you can see the waves are clean and lined up.   Not quite as big as yesterday, and a little more spread out, but it is oh so clean.   Glassy lined up spread out groundswell @ 2-3 feet with some larger set waves than that.  It’s dumping on the inside at the higher tide, with the thinking here is, once the tide back s out, the outside could get really fun…

11:20 am:  As the tide drops the waves are starting to break on the outside.   The swell is not big enough or the tide is not low enough (or a combination of both) such that it’s not very consistent and many of the waves are not top to bottom when they do break outside.   Still, there are some fun lined up long period ground swell set waves pushing through.   check the new photos in box #2.  Bet it will get better as the tide drops out more.. 

2:00 pm:  Was looking really good with the low tide, but as the tide starts to come back in it’s looking a bit softer and less consistent. The sets are still head high and some well over. Mostly around shoulder to head though. Fast freight train left barrels are common, some are makeable. New photos are up in box 3…

5:20 pm: We still have some fun surf this evening! It looks a little softer than earlier and the hard offshore wind might be beating it down a little bit, but there are still plenty of fun waves! The wind is offshore out of the WSW at 16 knots creating clean to semi clean conditions. The waves are about chest to shoulder high with some sets in the head high plus range. It is breaking on the outside sandbar and there is a little wait between sets. New photos in box 4.

More Info

* The strong (979 mb!) winter low that formed off the east coast is generating 40′ seas ENE of Hatteras as it departs. Consequently, the weekend’s sizeable swell will transition to clean/lingering ground swell with a brief easing of offshore wind Monday morning.  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 .
