7:15 am: The waves are super small this morning. It’s pretty small and weak out there with waves only about shin to knee high. The wind is light out of the WSW at 5-8 knots early this morning. On the Canaveral Buoy to the south, the ground swell measurement is 1.6 feet at 8 seconds, similar to yesterdays 1.3 feet at 7.7. The Grays Reef Buoy has small readings as well. You can see early morning photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page. Pictures coming soon
8:30 am: Looking oh so small as we head toward mid morning. Glassy and clean looking, just super small. The conditions would have been so favorable if the groundswell from Edouard would have arrived today. But it didn’t.
10:30 am: Clean and glassy and still mighty small. A few SUP’ers out, paddling around. Not seeing any surfers out, from where I am at looking at it. They are all waiting on the much hyped Edouard swell.
* The coming long period ground swell from Hurricane Edouard is showing nicely on the south Bermuda Buoy (a little over 1000 miles due east of Florida): http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=41049 and starting to show on the NE Bahamas Buoy: http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=41047. Waves will be on the upswing along Florida’s east coast Tuesday afternoon/evening, with Edouard’s ground swell peaking in size Wednesday morning with light offshore local wind. Please see the Surf Station Surf Forecast for more details.
