Monday Surf Report 1/23/17

Currently out here at Pensacola Beach we have some sizesable surf running in the rib to shoulder high range, with occasional overhead sets pumping through. The wave period is about 8 to 9 seconds, and the swell is from the SW. The winds have backed off some and are 13 to 18 mph from the NW. The tide is coming back in, and high tide will be at 7:39 pm at the pier. The drift does not appear to be that bad. While taking these shots I saw some nice root beer barrels for the taking. It’s good shortboard, and longboardable surf. So if you can, get out to the beach and get ya some good exercise. We should still have some surf continuing tomorrow.

Stormy Sunday Surf Report 1/22/17

Well boys and girls , the current surf conditions are not very appeasing, it’s pretty disorganized, and there’s a lot of drift to the east. The waves hitting our beaches are not what I expected for what the BuoyData is showing. It’s a peaky swell, you’d have some overhead drops, but it looks like it will be a short ride on the head to overhead waves out here. If you find some protection you might get some better waves. The winds out here right now are light from the WSW, they are expected to pick up to the 25 to 30 mph with gust around 35 mph with the thunder squalls moving through all day. The tide has just changed to coming back in, low tide at the pier, was at 5:33 am. So you have a short window of finding a spot, and getting on it before you get blown down to Navarre’s beach breaks. Whatever you do today be safe. It looks like the surf might improve tomorrow, so let’s hope so, so we can work off the SurfSmooth ice cream.

Wednesday Surf Report 1/18/17

Wow it’s really foggy out here on Pensacola Beach, the winds are lite out of the NE, and are expected to remain lite all day, except they are supposed to switch to the ESE this afternoon. From what I can see the surf is in the waist to rib high range from the South. With the lite offshore winds the waves are pretty smooth. The tide is almost all the way out, which will happen at 9:48 am at the pier, then look for the waves to increase a little in size and have more push. Don’t forget to wear something bright so that you don’t collide with each other out there in the fog, and remember it’s not snaking someone on a wave if you can’t see them.

Tuesday Surf Report 1/17/17

We have continued to have rideable surf for 6 days now. The current conditions at Pensacola Beach are waist to rib high range, with overhead sets coming in. It’s still a short period wind swell, and the winds have picked up from this morning. The winds are at 9 mph from the SSE, and the tide is now coming back in, low tide was at 10:30 am at the pier, and high tide will be at 9:39 pm. The skies are partly cloudy and the air temperature is supposed to reach 74 degrees today. It’s short boardable and longboardable. But the waves are dumping on the sandbars, with short rides, and the drift appears to be pretty bad. While snapping these shots Sterling Spencer was heading out for some afternoon exercise, these shots are of him.
