Surf Report Comments
6:35 am: The surf look very small in size again this morning. The wave height is 1/2 a foot to occasionally 1 foot and semi-glassy. The wind is WNWt @ 7-8 knots with the marine forecast calling for the wind to go E @ 10 knots later today (See pier data here and real time wind data from 3rd Street here). The East Canaveral Buoy, is showing groundswell of 1.6 feet at 8 seconds similar in size to yesterdays 1.6 feet @ 8.3 seconds. You can see the ocean moving early on the Surf Station’s You Tube Cam page.
8:00 am: Early-morning photos are up and posted box number one and like many mornings, on second look, the waves look a little bigger than they look at the crack of dawn. At daybreak wave looked less than knee-high but now that the sun is up there some thigh high set waves at times. It’s glassy this morning with light offshore winds.
12:30 pm: The surf looks like it has picked up a little bit since earlier. The wave height is about knee to occasionally up to waist high on some sets with fair to poor form. The wind is NE @ 7-8 knots and the Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 2 feet @ 9.1 seconds from the East.
5:45 pm: With the lower tide and the onshore wind the conditions have gotten worse, only looking about knee to thigh high now. The outside is very soft looking not even rideable probably, and the inside is just fast closeouts breaking close to the beach, it might improve a bit as the tide comes back in later tonight. New photos are up in box 3…
misc… There is video from this morning on our Facebook page.
* The small east swell will keep us in clean (am) marginally rideable waves to start the work week. Dean’s Surf Station Surf Forecast suggests potential early season tropical activity may present more size Memorial Day weekend.
* Lots of surfboards for sale direct. Here is the link to the Surf Station’s Buy and Sell page.
