6:45 am: The surf looks a little smaller than yesterday morning at this time. It’s glassy early with the wind WSW at 2-3 knots early. On the Canaveral Buoy to the south, the ground swell measurement is 2.6 feet at 8.3 seconds down a little from yesterdays 3.3 feet at 8.3 seconds. Here is a link to the Grays Reef Buoy. You can see early morning photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page.
8:45 am: Early morning photos are up in box #1 and yes it is smaller than yesterday. Some long lines, but closing out on the inside at many spots. The tide is backing out. Will it be big enough to break on the outside? We will see as the morning goes on. It’s super glassy this morning…
11:35 am: A the lower tide there are some waves breaking outside. So we have seen some improvement at many spots. Check photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page until we get new custom photos up with our afternoon report.
12:00 pm: The surf is breaking on the outside in the thigh high range with an occasional waist high wave. The wind is out of the East at 5 knots putting a slight texture on the surface. The Canaveral Buoy is still showing 2.6 feet of swell at 8.3 seconds. Low tide was at 10:27 this morning and we have a high tide this evening at 5:02 pm. The surf should move to the inside as the tide comes in and we might get a slight increase in size as well. It was partly cloudy when I took photos, but a rain cloud rolled in on my way back… hopefully it blows over quickly. New photos coming soon.
4:30 pm: The wind is lighter than expected so the form has not deteriorated much. With the tide pushing in the wind is improving at many spots. Some long lines at times and not closing out as bad as it could be. Seeing some surfers getting some fun rides at times. You can see photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page.
5:55 pm: The wind has picked back up onshore. So the form is not as good as an hour ago or so. Up and down with the changing conditions at the beach. Watch the wind as it is the key to the form…

For a brand new surfboard, use base coat a harder wax (such as tropical) that is less likely to smear, rub or melt off and helps softer waxes stay on the board. SHOP WAX!
