6:50 am: Only slightly smaller surf this morning as the swell continues. Waves are about 2-3 feet, possibly a little bigger on some set waves. The wind is beginning to clock offshore, now SSW at around 5 knots. The marine forecast is calling for offshore SW winds today. The East Canaveral Buoy has a groundswell reading of 5.6 feet at 10 seconds and the Grays Reef buoy to the north is 3.9 feet at 9.1 seconds , up from yesterday. You may can see early morning photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page.
7:55 am: Early morning photos are up in box #1 and the surf is a little smaller but not as disorganized with semi-glassy surface conditions early. The surf could clean up as the day goes on with the wind forecast to clock more offshore. Some inside rights are pushing up the beach at the higher tide early…

When going under a wave while duck diving, shift your weight quickly and smoothly from the nose to the tail of the board at the exact time the wave is passing over you. Once you learn this timing, the passing wave pressure and your weight shift, will allow you to pop up on the other side of the wave further out to sea and into the line up faster than ever.
“I like to tell people who never surf that surfing is like taking a shower, except it lasts a life time. We are the lucky few who get to play in Gods soup and we are better humans because of it.”
