7:05 am: Still too dark to see the waves but they are likely very small. The East Canaveral Buoy the ground swell measurement is 3.3 feet at 8.3 seconds, changed from yesterdays 1.3 feet at 8.3 seconds . The Grays Reef buoy to the north is 1.3 feet at 7.7 seconds. You may can see early morning photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page.
7:35 am: There is now enough light and you can see how small the surf is. I checked the surf last night (This is your surf reporter Tory – I just got back in town) and there looked like there was an occasional ridable wave at that time. But this morning, at the last of the outgoing tide, the surf looks like it has morning sickness. Small and weak, breaking on the far inside sandbar at the way lower tide. Looks knee high or less. I’ll take photos and post them up next, so you can see for yourself…
12:45 pm: Still small surf this afternoon but it looks a little bigger than this morning. It may have just bumped up a little with the tide. The wind is sideshore NNW at 12knts creating a little chop. It looks like it could be rideable on a longboard or fish. We have a high tide coming up at 2:47 pm and the Canaveral Buoy is showing 1.6 ft of swell at 8.3 seconds. We have a big cold front coming in this weekend, but it should bring some surf with it. New pictures up soon.
5:15 pm: The surf looks a little bigger than this morning for sure. Ridable surf for your Halloween Happy hour. Nothing great for sure but looking around thigh high on some of the sets. Breaking inside. Not seeing anyone out, as of report time…
6 pm: The waves are starting to roll in and it’s empty to end the day. The are some fun looking waves out there, and it seems to be building. The wind is blowing in out of the North at about 9-10 knots right now. The Canaveral Buoy to our south is showing a swell height of 1.6 feet at 8.3 seconds oout of the ESE. That will do it for us today, Happy Halloween and check back tomorrow. Photos coming soon

Did you know you can convert from junk food to eating healthy? It takes about 2 weeks for your body to adjust, but you will then crave healthy food, and not junk food. Eating healthy not only makes you feel good, but can contribute living longer and thus surfing longer.
