Wind is still on the surf. Solid chest to shoulder high but washing through. Fun surf but pretty disorganized.
A little morning sickness
Definitely plenty of surf this morning. Tides came up to dunes last night so look out for wood and other debri scattered on beach. Surf is has some morning sickness but will probably settle down and get fun through out the day. Light SE wind this morning.

Surf is solid head head and still building. Strong East wind on it and disorganized but no current and plenty of size. Fifty mile bouy is showing 5-7 feet. Seas off South Padre Island have built to swell of 10-15 feet. Tide is pushing water up to the dunes.

Solid chest high surf and building. Disorganized this morning with ESE wind 10 mph. Surf should get bigger and wind is forecasted to blow 20+ mph from the SE. Tropical rain showers will change conditions through out the day. Buoys off South Padre show 14+ foot waves offshore

No waves on the beach...yet

Buoys are building in the middle of the Gulf. Hopefully swell here by morning but looks like it may be afternoon.
Swell on the Way

Cannot be any flatter than it is today. Wave models say all that is going to change. Forecast is for tropical wave to bring some surf starting late tonight through Thursday. Will see what happens...
