3 pm Update

The waves have dropped a little since this morning and the form is not as good. The tide is bottoming out so hopefully the size and form will improve as the tide pushes in soon. Low tide on the right side of the pier is at 3:18 pm. Yesterday the winds backed off late in the day so hopefully they will do the same later today. Still plenty of daylight to get in an afternoon surf. The crowds are thick with beach lovers celebrating the last unofficial weekend of summer. Don’t they know that the best beach weather and surf is still ahead? If you haven’t spent a Fall on Pensacola Beach you don’t know what you’re missing.

The surf will slowly wind down through the middle of the week unless Invest 99L changes the game. Invest 99L is moving over into the Bay of Campeche today and will begin to re-energize.

Friday 3 pm Update

The beach is cloudy, and the wind is out of the south creating some chop on the knee to thigh high waves. A longboard would be the call. There might be a few larger peaks on the sets.
It’s not exciting, but it is rideable – in August.
