Saturday John Russell Memorial Paddle Out Surf Report 4/22/17

Good morning SurfSmooth surfers, today is the day to celebrate John’s life in and around the water, as one of Pensacola Beaches early pioneer surfers, a professional surf photographer, and a professional videographer and editor. As you can see if you go back into the photo archives and video archives on his primo website, you can see his passion and love for the surfers, the filming of nature, and getting the money shot. So get your boards ready to hit the warm emerald green waters, and join us on the West side of Pensacola Beach pier at 1:00 pm today. The surf should be ankle to knee high, which should not be a problem for any non surfer that wants to join in on the celebration. The tide was low at 5:09 am, and is filling back in now. The winds are forecast to be from the South this morning from 5 to 10 mph, remain the same pretty much all day, except late in the afternoon, they will switch more from the SSW and increase to 10 to 15 mph. The sky’s are supposed to be partly cloudy, but I’m hoping for full sun shining down on us. Kathy Russell, Ryan Russell, Tanis Russell McCree, and myself hope to see everyone out there enjoying this day with John. RIP my brother from another mother. You have truely left behind your footprints, and so my great memories for us to follow and enjoy thank you for being so awesome.

Pensacola Beach Surf Report Gulf of Mexico Wave Height Forecast

Thursday Surf Report 4/20/17

Well surfers we still have some fun wind driven surf to play on at P Cola Beach. The surf is running in the knee to hip high range, and it seems to build to a little bigger in the afternoons as do the winds increase some. The winds are forecast to blow from the SSE at 10 mph, creating a little chop on the small faces. I’ve gotten some reports from Navarre Beach and Pensacola Beach that if you find the right sandbar you can have quite a fun session. Look for the waves to continue for a few more days. So get out to the beaches and have some fun. Photos courtesy of Ben Brooks and Ron Gillette.

Wednesday Surf Report 4/19/17

Don’t forget Surfrider’s this coming Saturday April 22nd, is the John Russell memorial paddle out at 1:00 pm on the west side of Pensacola Beach pier. There will also be a memorial church service at Coastline Calvary Chapel at 9:00 am, all is welcome to come and join in on John’s celebration of life at both events. The current surf conditions out here on Pensacola Beach are we have a SE wind driven swell, with surf running in the thigh to waist high range. The winds are from the ESE at 9 to 14 mph, and are expected to remain that way all day. The current conditions are good for long boarders and those that want to surf SUP, but I think that the short boarders might struggle a bit. I hope to see everyone this Saturday to celebrate with John.

Monday Surf Report 4/17/17

Good morning surfers, we have some semi glassy surf conditions out here right now on Pensacola Beach. The surf is in the thigh to waist high range with 6 seconds of energy. They are peaky waves, so if you find the right sandbar you could get some nice shoulder rides. The tide is coming back in now and high tide at the pier will be at 2:51 pm today. You better get on it before the SE winds get on it. They are expected to pick up around 9:00 am at 8 to 12 mph. It’s long boardable, surf SUPable, and if you’re a small shortboarder you could pull it off.
