7:20 am: Another small morning of surf, our current wave height is about flat- half a foot. The wind is offshore out of the West at 5-6 knots. You can see wind data here, at the pier. Another weak morning today, but we may see a push with the incoming tide later on like we have been seeing the past few days. The East Canaveral Buoy the ground swell measurement is 1.3 feet at 8.3 seconds changed from yesterdays 2 feet at 4.5 seconds. The Grays Reef buoy to the north is about the same. You can see early morning photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page. Photos coming soon
12:05 pm: The surf continues to hover around the knee high range. The wind is N at 7 knots creating a light surface chop. There’s not much surf but its a beautiful beach day. Get out there and soak up the sun if you can because its going to be cold this weekend! Pictures coming soon.
5 pm: The wind is still coming in side onshore at around 8-9 knots out of the NNE, giving us a little semi-choppy surface conditions. There are a few waves out there but it is looking very inconsistent. The Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 2 feet at 7.1 seconds out of the East. Check back with us tomorrow for our next update! Photos coming soon
* The small moderate to occ longer period NE/E swell will linger into the start of the work week. Looking ahead, will a series of nor’easters bring several rounds of significant upt(r)icks in surf post-Halloween? Check Dean’s long range Surf Forecast for a look ahead all the way into early November.
* You can buy and sell surfboards all day long inside The Surf Station’s Florida Surfing Community Messageboard.
Surf with people better than you. It will always help you progress. But, don’t let it defeat you and make you bummed out.
