7:05 am: The waves look smaller on this Tuesday morning. Waves look only around 1/2 a foot to 1 foot early. The wind is light west @ 2-3knots (see the wind data from the St. Augustine Pier) . On the East Canaveral Buoy to the south, the ground swell measurement is 2.0 feet at 8.3 feet down from yesterdays 3.6 feet at 8.3 seconds. Check The Grays Reef buoy for more info. You can see early morning photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page
10:45 am: We have received a little bit of a push with incoming tide. A few thigh high waves. Small and weak overall. .. but it is ridable as the tide pushes in. Seeing a few surfers out…
12:45 pm: Still a wave in the thigh to waist high range coming in with the higher tide. The wind is out of the NW at 8 knots creating semi clean conditions. Its a rainy day at the beach and it looks kind of mushy but it could be fun at the right sandbar. There are a couple guys getting some rides… new pics coming soon.
