6:45 am:   The waves are small but a tad bigger than yesterday on this Friday morning.  The waves look about knee to thigh high early.  The wind is SW @ 6-8 knots early this morning. The marine forecast is calling for SW then S winds today.   The Canaveral Buoy is showing a swell height of2.6 feet at 7.7 seconds , up form yesterdays  2.0 feet @ 9.1 seconds .  The Grays Reef Buoy is showing waves of 1.3 feet at 7.7 seconds, the same as yesterday.     Photos coming soon and you can check out early pics on the  SS Cam page.

8:20 am:   You can see in the early photos there is hope for today.   The East Canaveral buoy has ticked up some and if you wait around long enough, you will see some set waves roll in around thigh high.   Super inconsistent but the sets are there.

11:45 am: New photos are up for mid day. The wave size has stayed about the same and the wind has continued to blow offshore. The tide is in-between causing the waves to break pretty shallow right now and closing out rather fast. If you find the right sandbar though their is potential to find some pretty fun waves.

5:20 pm: The wind went onshore awhile ago making it no longer glassy, but there are still some waves rolling through if you want to get out there on a longboard. The wind is now S so its not completely choppy. The wind should die back down in the morning with a little boost in swell too. New photos are up in box 3

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 ...

Glass needle like creatures are…Sea Butterflies
Over the past few days, surfers in Saint Augustine have had to bear constant poking by small, clear, spike shaped creatures. They are especially prone to getting stuck in fabric such as shorts, swimsuits and shirts or rashguards. I got a few stuck in my hands while paddling. After searching endlessly online, Surf Station messageboard member gringojo identified them and mentioned a professor who was researching them. A quick search found this article on Jacksonville University's website. [caption id="attachment_56719" align="alignnone" width="512"] Creseis acicula photo via Arctic Ocean Diversity[/caption] The needles are in fact swimming snails or sea slugs called creseis acicula or ...

Flesh eating bacteria: Don’t panic but be aware.
[caption id="attachment_192828" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Wikipedia on Vibrio Vulnificus[/caption] There has been a lot of buzz lately about flesh eating bacteria in nearby waters. After hearing about a few deaths in Florida, people certainly have cause for concern. So, is it safe to go in the water? Probably. Most healthy individuals will not contract it simply from being in the water. Still, an infection can be fatal so it's important to know how to avoid one. What is it? Vibrio vulnificus is a bacterium that typically lives in warm salt or brackish water. Is this a huge or unusual outbreak? Not particularly. It happens to ...

The tail has been widened for small wave glide, and the original single to double concave has been replaced with a ...

Dillon Perillo And Yadin Nicol’s West Coast Roadtrip
from "Recently, Dillon Perillo and Yadin Nicol took a long, cold, journey down down the spinal cord of the West Coast – also known as Highway 101. The two adventure seekers hopped in a van along with a few photographers and embarked from Smith Optic’s new home base of Portland, Oregon and trekked it all the way down to their respective California abodes. Here, we have the video run-down of the 1600 mile expedition and all the action that went down along the way." Please note there is some choice language for those of you with children.
