Surf Report Comments
Reporter: T. Strange
6:55 am: The waves are small but a little bigger than yesterday at this time. Wave size is around knee to thigh high early. The surface conditions are glassy, with light west early. The local marine forecast calling for light E winds later today. On the local buoy our early morning wave height measurement is 1.6 feet at 12 seconds, changed from yesterdays 2.3 feet at 4 seconds . You can see the ocean live here on our north side pier cam.
7:30 am: New Early morning photos are up in box #1 and you can see it’s very glassy with some clean lines this morning. A few of the set waves look at least thigh high, maybe waist high as some of the 11 to 12 second ground swells from offshore filters it’s way in. The East Canaveral Buoy has more swell than our buoy. Will some of that swell work it’s way here? We will see.
Now, with all this said, we would be raising our already bumped up surf factor …but right at sunrise some dense fog has rolled in (after the pre-sunrise photos ) so it’s hard to see the surf. And without the sunshine, the morning surf session is not as attractive for a mid morning paddleout.
4:45 pm: No more fog! Early afternoon ( 1:00 pm) and late afternoon ( 3:00 pm) photos are up in box #2 with overall fairly glassy surf ! Some thigh to waist high set waves with good form. Looks like there will be waves all the way yup till dark tonight…

Following a small last weekend in January, we’re in store for a spring-like warm up accompanied by a modest uptick in long period ENE ground swell into mid-week… Is there some more size on the horizon? The updated 7-Day Surf Forecast says YES! next weekend.
Quote Of The Day
One of the greatest things about the sport of surfing is that you need only three things: your body, a surfboard, and a wave.
