FRIDAY:

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

Beach Clean Up Success!
A BIG Thank You to all those who came out and helped with the St. Augustine Beach Clean Up. The Day was a huge success with picking up over 4 gallons of cigarette butts and a huge amount of trash off the beach! Here are some photos from the day.

Coming Soon! Channel Islands Pod Mod Surfboard
Coming this Summer! The new Channel Islands Pod Mod Surfboard. A sure fire Florida favorite! In 2000, the original Pod rapidly became a global favorite, allowing surfers to drop six inches off their shortboards and revolutionize punting. The Channel Islands Pod Mod design is a heavily modified Pod, designed to be ridden even shorter and wider than the orginal, catering to the surfer hat wants a little more volume forward to catch waves but doesn't want to sacrifice performance. The tail has been widened for small wave glide, and the original single to double concave has been replaced with a ...

Preventing Water drops on GoPro
Footage from the HD GoPros can be pretty impressive but a water drop smack dab in the middle of the lens can ruin your shot pretty quickly. Water photographers have a variety of techniques to prevent this. Here is GoPro's recommendation from their manual: "Apply RAIN-X or a similar anti-beading solution to the housing lens to prevent water-spots from forming when using your camera in rain or water. When RAIN-X is not available, periodically licking your lens is a good backup solution." Some people have claimed that Rain-X can be corrosive to certain plastics so there are some other techniques: Spitting or licking the port or housing ...

21Days Extras: Ezekiel Lau on sports
Some people are born to compete. Others are born to win. Ezekiel Lau probably falls into the latter of the two categories. In this extra piece from our 21Days series covering the 2015 Volcom Pipeline Pro, Zeke talks about his life as a competitive (and presumably victorious) adolescent. And only after learn that water time wasn’t always first for the Hawaiian. The clip ends on a sentimental note from his father. Bon appetit.


21 Days: Volcom Pipe Pro, episode 3
from redbullsurfing.com: "The big day is upon us – emphasis on big. With an angry swell squaring up with Oahu's North Shore, the Volcom Pipe Pro looks to be all systems go for the first few days of competition. Suffice to say, it should be one fine event, and one that you must find a way to watch."


Evan Thompson in Jax and Nicaragua
Hot off the press, this video was just sent to me via Evan Thompson himself. Nice to watch some local talent surf our waters, enjoy!


21 Days: Volcom Pipe Pro, Episode 2
"Few things in this world are worth devoting your life to. For some, it’s a career. Others, a romance. But to Jamie O’Brien, Kalani Chapman, Ezekiel Lau and Koa Rothman, it’s Pipeline."


2015 Rincon Classic, Coffin vs Curren!
from the Inertia: "Tom Curren proves he is still the King, but the Prince of Rincon is ready to lead. Conner Coffin won first place at the 2015 Channel Islands Rincon Classic, running this past weekend. The waves were perfect for three days. The only exception was some strong offshore winds that lasted for several hours on Saturday — the devil winds turned the glassy walls into something akin to Jeffrey’s Bay, but without the perfect tubes. In other words, it was hard to surf: spray blinded competitors, and riding the wave was akin to surfing uphill. But the wind calmed as ...


Filipe Toledo in Southern California
from surfingmag.com: "If Southern California is good for one thing, it’s pretty women wearing moderately expensive clothing and flashing big, sunny and sometimes insecure smiles. But if it’s good for two things, the second one would be air sections. Here’s a quick clip of Filipe Toledo and Gabriel André taking advantage of the latter. The highpoint, we’d say, comes at Filipe’s backhand swivel 57 seconds in — it’s at least worthy of a sitting ovation. As far as the first thing Southern California is good for, there’s a glimpse of that at 1:20. Feisty one, no?"
