Incoming one or two day little swell for Wednesday morning and possible Thursday morning. Could be thigh to stomach high, from the Pier and getting a little bigger as you go south. Should be glassy Wednesday morning.  This is just a little Southeast swell rolling in.

Hurricane Arthur surf this morning 3-4 feet, posted at 5:40 AM Wednesday morning July 2 2014!  It should be bigger than chest high this morning at the Cocoa Beach Pier, and offshore, Satellite Beach may be head high.

Winds are offshore as I had hoped and shared last night, in the WNW range 15 mph with some stronger gusts!  The swell will be gone by lunchtime or this afternoon anyhow.

At Midnight last night the swell at the 20 mph buoy was ENE     17.5 knots and    9.2 feet at     8 seconds!  and at 2 Am this morning/last night it was at the 20 mile,  NNW    15.5 knots    10.5 feet   at 10 seconds almost a ground swell, and it probably is a ground swell with just low numbers. (ground swell normally has to be at 11 seconds, technically :)

At 4 AM just 2 hours ago, it read 7.5 feet at 10 seconds.  The accurate winds at our Merritt Island wind weather station says 12 – 15 mph WNW.  It will be gone quickly.

DON’T FORGET TO SEE OUR NEW LIVE RADAR AND ACCURATE REAL TIME WIND DATA UNDER THE Live Radar/Wind & Surfbreaks link, it is the drop down link underneath it.  So now you can track storms live right here!


Johnson Avenue Surfers has 4 live radar tracking maps, see the permanent page under the 5th main menu , link, it is the drop down submenu item here:

Hey, when we have a storm named Arthur, we gotta make some upgrades :)  Be safe, and catch the morning Stomach to maybe chest high with strong offshore winds, until maybe 9 or 10 AM Wednesday.  Update at 9:31 PM Tuesday night.  Looks like the storm has dropped some, maybe waist to chest, or less, we’ll see :)

Today, Saturday, at 12:30 when I checked, the Waves are still looking fun in the thigh to stomach high  (down south), even with the winds playing variable with the small weather storm activity.  It is bigger down south, but our 30 minute after high tide window that started at J-Ave around 11:20 looked real fun, well, until a 1/4 mile pipe dredging removal , total swell block activity happened , interesting to look at though.

Anyhow, the swell shrinks all day, but should have some glass for another hour or so depending on the winds mind for the moment.


Is there a decent chance for glass and size in the morning Friday?  South Cocoa Beach to Satellite, chest high waves with winds that should be brisk offshore, 10 to 15 mph SSW with a window of maybe SW from 8 to 10, but just a possible window.  SSW most likely, which is sideshore at the Cape and North Cocoa Beach, but it should still be fun, because it is a 12 second period ground swell.  A 3 foot 12 second swell has been known to go head high for us, chest high is a better start :)

Saturday looks waist high and glassier in the morning.

Get it early Friday, because by 10 Am, it could be Thunderstorms, so dawn patrol is the wise move :)

Have Fun, be safe, and don’t forget to watch for sharks, we’ve had a bunch.


Friday is looking potentially Epic with a 3 foot at 12 second ground swell, which could produce chest high plus waves between the Cape and Satellite Beach. More below…

Friday could have stomach to chest high plus waves between the Cape and Satellite Beach with offshore winds up until noon.

Thursday afternoon should also have a strong chunk of the swell coming in late afternoon, also up to chest high, maybe South winds in the 10-15 mph range meaning Playalinda or Spanish House with offshore winds and a slight offshore effect in Satellite Beach.  This would be onshore winds North of Minuteman Causeway, so Thursday you may want to check out the South Streets or further south.

Saturday could have some thigh to waist high glassy leftovers :)

This is a tuesday morning update for the Tuesday report below, done at 6:36 AM tuesday.  The near shore buoy dropped to 2.3 feet at 8 to 10 seconds, so I may have to go with waist to maybe chest high down south.  Still same offshore winds thought.


Yeah, tuesday morning looks like chest high waves and maybe head high down south with NW winds at daybreak, turning WNW till noon, and NNW to onshore by 1.

Low Tide is around 8:30, which isn’t the best, since I prefer high going low, but hey, it should be epic, and perhaps the tide won’t make a difference!

Get it while you can, short report tonight!


7 1/2 feet at 11 seconds at the 20 mile buoy!  at 11 Am Thursday.  That’s a wind swell mixed with ground swell, gotta love it!



Friday mid afternoon could be some head high semi-clean wave, fun! 

Today, Thursday,  the swell peaks in size, an should be overhead down South for sure.

Satellite Beach Surfing Video, shot a week , from last tuesday, 03/25,  There were a few shortboarders that were a total  pleasure to watch, with sweet carving, 360 floaters, and a longboarder that thought he was on a shortboard.  Hope you enjoy the short video.

Today Saturday, 04/05/2014, the waves kicked in for an hour, around 10 to 11 AM, and I got my 80-100 yard waist high wall to put a smile on my face; and a few really fun rail grabber lefts :)

Friday night 9:00 PM update from the report I shared Thursday below this Friday update;  Ground swell, is here, should hold, and winds still look SW to WSW in the 5 to 8 mph range on Saturday.  And Sunday, we may have SSW winds which is slight offshore from 8th South and further South.  Size should be the same, on Sunday or 6 inches bigger until 11 or 12 probably.


Saturday morning could have a solid ENE Ground Swell for us with Waist to occasional Chest high sets and Glassy…More below on the incoming swell…

Walk on Water Productions website was out on Tuesday morning the 25th, to get the footage while it was Glass :)

The two videos below are some clips that I shot in Satellite Beach, both are from March 25, 2014 around 10 AM, with a nice Aerial at the end, and the second, is a clip of Chad that I shot on the same day, a nice glassy 10 second left :)  I will compile another video from the same day soon.


The swell period which determines whether or not we have a ground swell, starts rolling in Friday afternoon late, but come in Saturday morning around 6 to 9 am.  And it is supposed to strengthen thru the day bringing in more consistent chest high sets.  It could be glassy until noon even , air temp around 68 at daybreak, winds, SW to WSW in the 4 to 8 mph range.

Sunday morning, could be chest high, and semi-glassy down south, as the winds right now are showing South in the 10 plus mph range, so we won’t know more on that until Friday some time.

Enjoy, and we’ll post an update, if it looks like the winds will change drastically in any way.

Thanks, and have a great post Camel Day.
