Surf Report Comments


6:50 am:  The surf looks similar in size to yesterday.   Small scale waves, but waves, again this morning.  The wave height is about knee to thigh high with an occasional larger set wave.   It has only fair form this morning as the wind is onshore, currently NNE @ around 6-7 knots early.  You can see the wind direction and speed on the pier data.   The local buoy is showing  not showing measurements today so we are looking further out to the East Canaveral Buoy.   The reading this morning on this buoy is 4.9 feet at 6 seconds up from yesterdays ground swell measurement of  2.0 feet at 8.3 seconds.   The marine forecast calls for the wind to be onshore and offshore tomorrow morning   (see up to the minute wind info here)..

7:35 am:  On second look, the surf looks a little bigger on this Friday morning.    The ocean looks stirred and there are some easily waist high waves.  Some spots will be fun today as the tide pushes in.  Light onshores so not real clean but some lefts and rights and we will take what we can get…

8:00 am:   Here is some early morning video:


10:15 am:   Onshore winds with continued surf as we head toward mid day.   It’s bigger than this time yesterday.  A little crossed up with the sideonshore NNE wind.  But at least there is swell and the high tide spots may be fun…

2:05 pm:  New photos are up in box #2 and you can see some over waist high fun waves at times.   The NNE to NE wind is crossing it up some but it’s still fun.   Hopefully outgoing tide won’t mess it up too much as the afternoon goes on…

8:05 pm:   The wind lightened up so the surf improved.  Check the new photos in box #3. You can see it has some size and it’s glassy at times.    This is all promising for tomorrow.  And on that positive note… see ya in the morning .. over and out…
