FRIDAY:

7:10 am:   Semi-choppy, small surf on this Friday morning.   Looks about a 1.2 a foot to 1 foot… maybe on occasional 1.5 feet inconsistent set wave.   The wind is offshore NW winds at 6-7 knots.  You can see wind data here, at the pier.     On the  East Canaveral Buoy the ground swell measurement is 2.6 feet at 8.3 seconds.   The Grays Reef buoy to the north is 1.6 feet at 9.1 seconds, the same as yesterday.   You can see early morning photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page.

8:10 am:  The sun is up and although small overall, once in a while a fully ridable wave will sneak in.   It’s not very clean but is improving at report time with the offshore NW wind.    The marine forecast however calls for NE winds today, so once it switches the clean up will stop, and it will be come choppier.  So pay attention to the wind…

 10:45 am:  Sunny skies and a beautiful day at the beach with 1 to 1.5 foot semi-choppy lines.  Ridable and if you have nothing to do it may be worth paddling out…

12pm: The waves are still on the small side running around knee to thigh high and a little choppy right now. It looks like it still could be worth checking out, it’s just a little inconsistent out there. The wind is coming in right now from  the North at 9 Knots right now . The Canaveral buoy to the south is showing a swell height of 2.3 feet at 10.8 seconds out of the ENE. More Photos coming soon.

 

 

 

 

 

*  A moderate to occ longer period NE swell will briefly build into the weekend. Will a weeklong Nor’easter produce a significant upt(r)ick in surf size (accompanied by coastal erosion) post-Halloween? Check Dean’s long range Surf Forecast for a look ahead into early November.

* Inside the Surf Station Community Messageboard (link here) are photos from the Flagler Pier , discussion of what are good booties, surfboards to buy and sell and more!

When choosing your next surfboard, lay several flat on the floor and compare the rocker. Pay attention to the space between the floor and the tail of the board. Tail rocker affects how the board will ride. Surfboards with more tail rocker turn easier.  A flatter board (less tail rocker) is faster.  The overall design of the surfboard + type of wave you will be surfing should determine how much rocker is best for you. One of our specialists here at the Surf Station can help you decide this crucial factor.
