Tuesday 4:30 pm Update

The wind is now straight out of the west, the tide is very low, and the waves are thigh to possibly waist high. The form is just “ok”.

12:45 Tuesday Update

The surf has changed. Now we have consistent southeast winds chopping up the waves. It is thigh to waist high with an occasional larger set.

Monday 4:30 pm Update

The waves are hanging in in the waist to rib high range. Long lines. South winds at 10 mph and dropping. Worth the trip out after work if you bring your longboard.

Monday 2:45 Update

The waves are similar to yesterday afternoon – waist high with rib high sets, longer lines than usual. There is a southeast breeze, but it’s not too choppy. It looks fun on a long or short board. Try to grab a few waves before dark!

Invest 92L is no longer an issue yet we have more waves on tap today. If you can’t make dawn patrol don’t worry because things are lining up for a good after work/school session too. Look for building waves again today. Clean but smaller conditions this morning will build into the waist to rib high range this afternoon and the winds will back off too. Tomorrow is looking good with clean conditions for dawn patrol again. The Smooth 7S Satellite is showing more waves for the upcoming weekend so stay tuned. See our Tropical Weather Page for more information.

Knee to waist high

Will build more later
Surf now? Surf later?
More waves tomorrow

9 pm Evening Update

Hope you caught some of those Invest 92L waves we had today. The day started in the knee to thigh high range and ended with another spectacular sunset, light winds, and waist to chest+ high sets showing up before dark. Today the early bird got the worm but the late bird got the bigger and tastier worm. I shot all the way to dark and don’t have time to get anything up but this tease tonight so check back.
 
Afternoon Wave

Get ready for more waves tomorrow morning with a secondary pulse and bigger waves later in the day once again. We’ll have more leftover waves on Tuesday. Further out, the Surf Smooth 7S Satellite is showing more waves coming next weekend with two systems entering the Gulf around the same time. (One will be coming from the east and one from the south). Gonna get interesting and just like today’s swell… you’ll find out about it before it happens here at SURFSMOOTH.COM.

9:30 am Update

The waves are knee to thigh high with an occasional bigger set but you have to wait on em. The wind has clocked more easterly putting some chop on the surface. Not shortboardable yet. Keep an eye on the report and cams because it will build later. The Pensacola Buoy is 4.3 ft @ 6 sec.

Pensacola Beach Morning Surf Report

Mostly CloudyWe have light offshore winds from the NE that are making clean conditions. There are building thigh high lines rolling in. The Pensacola Buoy is 4.6 ft @ 6 sec.. Tides on the right side of the pier were high @ 2:45 am and will be low @ 2:15 pm. Water Temp 83°. Today will be mostly cloudy with a 50% rain chance in the afternoon. Highs around 90. NE winds 5-10 mph becoming southeast in the afternoon.

Pensacola Beach Surf Forecast

Invest 92L has moved almost south of us overnight. It is less organized this morning due to strong wind shear. Despite the lack of development we are seeing an increase in wave size. Look for waves in at least the waist to rib high range later today. Look for waves to hang around for several days. See our Tropical Weather Page for more information.

Evening Update

At sunset the waves were only shin to maybe knee high. Invest 92L is located over the east-central Gulf of Mexico and has continued to become less defined this afternoon and the associated shower activity is minimal. Upper-level winds are not conducive for development, and the low will most likely degenerate into a trough of low pressure while it moves westward across the Gulf of Mexico during the next few days. It will be interesting to see what tomorrow brings. At 8 pm the Pensacola Buoy is 3.3 ft @ 6 sec.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…near 0 percent.

Another great sunset

A rainbow too

Here comes the night

 

12:30 pm Saturday Update

Still no sign of any increase in waves on the beach… only shin high. Lots of SUPs up and down the beach. The Pensacola Buoy has increased to 3 ft @ 5 sec. so we’re keeping an eye on it. Invest 92L continues to track west in the Gulf but it is not gaining any strength right now due to strong wind shear that is inhibiting it’s growth.
