6:55 am: Still too dark to see for sure how big the waves are but here are the stats: The wind is light west @ 2-7 knots early. The Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 2.6 feet at 7.7 seconds, down from yesterdays 3.9 feet at 9.1 seconds
The Grays Reef Buoy is showing a groundswell reading of 2.6 feet at 8.3 seconds, down from yesterdays 3.0 feet at 8.3 feet . The marine forecast is calling for W winds 15-20 knots, ahead of a cold front.
7:05 am: Preliminary early morning photos are up in box#1 and you can see there are waves, but they look a little smaller than yesterday. Lumpy glassy lines before sunrise. We will get a better look at it, once the sun comes up…
8:00 am: A second round of photos are now up in the back end of box #1 with the lead in slider photo showing Cody Coleman of Cody Colemen Photography filming from the water early on this Friday morning. Yes a few freak waves look good but overall they are hard to find as it’s real inconsistent with only a few outside waves breaking here and there. They look good on the outside when they mound up, but many time they do not even break, as the swell wanes…
10:05 am: The wind is beginning to pick up offshore. So this offshore wind that is making it look clean is blowing it smaller and smaller. Will we get an incoming tide push like the past few days? It’s looking less likely so….
12:20 pm: There looks to be a storm coming our way. The waves are pretty small but there are still waves to be caught before the storm moves in. The waves are about knee to thigh high with good form, it may be a little larger on some set waves. The wind is blowing in out of the W @ 12-15 knots right now. The Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of 2 feet @ 7.7 seconds from the ENE. Photos coming soon
