Our unseasonal cold front moved through overnight and has taken what little waves we had with it. The winds are light and the surf is flat. High tide @ 12:45 pm. Low @ 10:09 pm. Sunny skies return today. Highs in the lower 90s. NW winds 5 to 10 mph.

The Smooth 7S Satellite is beginning to show potential for some small long-period waves squeaking in from the Caribbean late in the week. Look for long but small lines to beginning to show on Thursday and it could continue into the weekend. You heard it here first… unless I’m wrong… then you heard it somewhere else.
The Bad News: The surf never really got much size today despite the strong west winds. The winds will go offshore overnight so there won’t be a whole lot left at dawn patrol… but check it anyway.

5 pm Monday Update
You would think that as hard as the winds have been blowing that the waves would be a whole lot bigger but Nooooo! It’s only knee to thigh with sloppy, choppy, disorganized, drifty conditions due to the strong side shore winds. I’m hearing thunder off in the distance and the radar is showing some rain in N Pensacola. It’s not any bigger east of us until you get to Panama City where it’s waist to chest with onshore winds and poor conditions.
11:30 am Monday Update
It’s a beautiful day at the beach. The water is fairly clear, there is a good bit of wind out of the west. Even with the wind, the gulf is still fairly clean with knee high waves. The tide is on the full side, so most of the waves are breaking near shore, and not very rideable. Tom Hutson

We have some building shin to knee high waves from the WSW. Winds are W at 10 mph putting some chop on it. High tide @ 12:12 pm. Low @ 10:09 pm. Mostly sunny. 50% rain chance. Highs in the lower 90s. West winds 10 to 15 mph becoming southwest 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon.
We will get some thigh to waist high wind waves this afternoon. Winds will go offshore on Tuesday and clean things up in the morning but there won’t be much to clean up. Unfortunately, flatness sets back in for the rest of the week.
The lifeguard stands were wooden. Espo was still making rare appearances at public surf spots. Steve-O with long hair was getting nose rides. YS3′s phone report. Watercam footage before GoPros. Check out this little vintage 2006 surf smooth summertime swell.
It’s a humid, waveless morning. Time to go for a paddle to get some exercise and cool down. No waves are expected today but if something sneaks in we’ll let you know. Mostly sunny. Isolated showers and thunderstorms possible. Highs in the lower 90s. West winds 5 to 10 mph becoming southwest 10 to 15 mph in the afternoon.
Flat today. We will get some thigh to waist high wind waves on Monday. Winds will go offshore on Tuesday and clean things up in the morning but there won’t be much to clean up. Unfortunately, flatness sets back in for the rest of the week.
The waves are shin to possibly knee high. The tide has been pretty full this morning, so it was hard to catch a wave even on a SUP. There is a wsw wind giving the gulf some texture. Tom Hutson

It is now in the shin high range but having trouble breaking due to the high tide. Should be catchable on a SUP at the right sandbar. It’s a good morning to go for a stand up paddle. The Pensacola Buoy is 2.3 ft @ 4 sec. Tides will be high @ 11:09 am and low @ 9:48 pm. Mostly cloudy today. 30% rain chance. Highs in the upper 80s. W winds around 5 mph becoming SW 10-15 mph in the afternoon.
A high pressure will continue to sit over the Gulf through early next week giving us light to moderate SW winds and mostly flatness. A slight increase is SW wind waves on Monday→Tuesday. Winds go offshore on Tuesday cleaning up the little leftover waves. Get ready for another flat spell after that.
The waves are knee to maybe thigh high. It is a long period swell, but the sw wind is messing it up. Your best bet is to bring a longboard, low expectations, and a good bit of patience. Tom Hutson
