THURSDAY:

6:45 am:   Small scale surf starts out this Thursday morning. Super glassy with the wind WNW at around 4-7 knots.  On the  Canaveral Buoy to the south, the ground swell measurement is 1.6 feet at 8.3 seconds up a tad from yesterday at this time.   Here is a link to the Grays Reef Buoy.    You can see early morning photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page.

8:30 am: Real glassy this morning with light offshore winds.   The waves are super inconsistent but there are some set waves a little over knee high at times.   The last several days incoming tide has given the size of the waves a little push.  Will it happen again today?  We will see….

 12:14 pm: Light chop forming and waves are mushy but still fair form, looks kinda alright for a log or SUP. Probably will get worse with the wind, it is starting to get crumbly and sectiony but there are still some surfable lines and beautiful clear water if you need to get in some ocean time.

Not to sound too deep or weird, but I think that the times when you really appreciate surfing are the times you’re really sort of becoming one with nature. – Kelly Slater

Never leave your board in a hot car or in direct sunlight for too long. This can cause boards to delaminate or become discolored.

The Skim Heard Round the World
Brad Domke just rode the biggest wave ever surfed on a skimboard. It went down in the swell that recently hit Puerto Escondido, where Shane Dorian airdropped into what might have been wave of the year so far. Brad Domke's unique game of surfing waves on a skimboard, which some choose to call skurfing, is mesmerising. There’s no mods; the board Domke surfs huge Mexican beachies on is the same one he runs in skim contests. “When you’re drawing the line, you really have to pinpoint the spot on the wave before you even get to it,” he once told Stab in ...

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 ...

Jordy <3 J-Bay
Flowing power surfing doesn’t get much better in 2014 than watching Jordy Smith beat down the line at Jeffrey’s Bay. He’s won the last two world tour events there and knows the place better than any of his competitors. This is a heartfelt and v enjoyable look at J-Bay through Jordy’s lens, coloured with premium clips of him lighting the place up.
