7:05 am: Chilly air this morning with the wind offshore WSW blowing into the waves. Smaller surf with clean lines. Waves size 1 foot, occasionally 1.5 feet. The marine forecast is calling for stronger offshore NW winds today. The East Canaveral Buoy has a groundswell reading of 3.9 feet at 7.7. The Grays Reef buoy to the north is 1.3 feet to 9.1 seconds. You may can see early morning photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page.
8:00 am: Early morning photos are up in box #1 and you can see the surf looks smaller than yesterday. It’s clean and glassy, with very good to excellent form. The wind is light offshore. Startling out very cool at the beach. The lines are closing out on the inside at many spots, but it could improve as the tide pushes and fills in.
12:30 pm: Although quite inconsistent, there are some fun Turkey Day waves. Check the new photos just posted in box #2 and you can see there are some clean long lines on occasion. Small overall and you really have to wait on the sets, but once in a while it’s totally worth the wait. A good way to burn calories before the big thankful feast…
4:00 pm: Looking smaller and weaker as the afternoon has gone on. The offshore wind is beating the swell down smaller and smaller…
