6:50 am:    The waves look bigger than this time yesterday morning.   Larger and lumpy with a temporary offshore NW wind.   The marine forecast is calling for NE winds at 20-35 knots today.      See the wind data here @ the pier and here on the Surf Station Weather Station. Checking the buoys:  The Canaveral Buoy and the Grays Reef Buoy are both showing increased swell with the Canaveral buoy a 5.2 feet at 10 second ground swell reading early.   You can see the waves early on the Surf Station You Tube HD Cam.

 8:35 am:   Early-morning photos are up in box # 1 and you can see we have much larger surf today, than yesterday.   Since the photos were taken, the wind has gone a little more sideshore it is slowly starting to pick up.   It’s still semi glassy though, as a report time, with some large lumpy lines pushing through on the outside.   It’s somewhat inconsistent at times out there, but when the sets come there some set waves that look easily shoulder to head high.

9:10 am:  The wind has picked up a little more so it’s not longer semi-glassy but now semi-choppy and getting choppier.   Dang we should have paddled out at sunrise.   Did anyone? Tell us here (or tell us any surf story) as we’d love to hear. A story of the cleaner surf may be all we have as it’s getting choppier by the second with the marine forecast calling for a big blow onshore all day today.

10: 05 am:    Looking choppier as the wind picks up more…

12:33 pm: Getting a bit more like a washing machine out there. Still more organized than yesterday with a few inside dumpy tube things. Expect a drift if you go out. Winds have picked up NNE with gust of 21 knots

 4:15 pm:    Still quite choppy and disorganized.   But at times there are some walls on the outside that… are probably earlier to get out and ride on the kiteboard.  Check the new photos in box #3 and you can see for yourself…

 6:40 pm:   Choppy looking surf this evening.   Choppy and sloppy, mixed up and messy surf.   Some large outside waves with some overhead peaks at times.  Gosh it would be so much better if the wind were offshore.

And we will hope Saturdays offshore prediction holds true.  These waves would be so good with offshores… over and out…



 * Inside the Surf Station Surf Forecast:  Looks like the swell may peak today….but will it peak again on Easter?  

* Speaking of Easter…   Surf Station is having an Easter Egg Hunt this weekend at the shop.   Check out the details here.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

After a long surf session, check out downtown St. Augustine.  So many cool shops, restaurants, and taverns to see and check out.  ’The Floridian‘ on Cordova Street has local and organic food, and is owned and run by the family of a former Surf Station team rider.

Just a friendly reminder of what to expect from the Champ at the Bells Bowl, hopefully..

Michel Bourez Wins the 2014 Margaret River Pro from Firewire Surfboards on Vimeo. In the day of the “heat analyzer” we all get to play scientist, sportscaster or critic, watching heats over and over at live speed and in slow motion until our daily lives pull us back to reality. To those fanatics who live and breathe surfing, the accounts below that date back to November of 2012 will be familiar. For the second year in a row, California played host to its second World Tour event with the O’Neill Cold Water Classic. Something happened though that was totally unexpected: Michel ...

Damaged CI Shipment
We were anxiously awaiting our new shipment of Channel Islands Surfboards. Boxes of new shred sticks including Fred Stubbles, #4's and DFR's. Upon arrival, we noticed that the box containing them looked a little suspect. It seems the shipping company misread the label that said FRAGILE and took it to mean run over with a vehicle. As you can imagine, upon further inspection, the boards arrived in pretty bad shape. We figured you as the customer would take a little comfort in knowing that it doesn't only happen on flights to Costa Rica. Prepare yourself for the horror and take a look ...

Surfing Typhoon Lagoon
To-Surf or Not-To-Surf Typhoon Lagoon by: Brian Brown I was recently a last minute invite to a group of guys heading out to surf the wave pool at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park in Orlando, Florida. I had heard a lot of chatter about this wave and have been curious to see exactly what type of wave it could produce. I was a little reluctant to join as I've heard mixed reviews about the caliper of wave you get for the cost of renting the place out. Chances are, if you ask someone that has surfed it before you are going to ...
