Asleep at the wheel.  Nahhhh, it’s not this good today, but we do have a small small ground swell happening.   This photo is Hurricane Earl!

A small ground swell crept in and I wasn’t paying attention.  It came in from the east, but the winds delivering it were from the south, so it’s just barely hitting the beaches.

The good thing is, there may be a few thigh to waist high waves at mid-tide, high going low, around 12 Noon, I can’t guarantee it, but I am going to take a drive down there with my board.  The winds are SSW right now, pretty strong so it may keep it from even breaking, but then again, it may back off to 10-12 mph SW, hopefully earlier than 4 or 5 o’clock.

Satellite Beach, O’club again, should sport the most size, so I figure to head down there after we get the photographer of these leftover Hurricane Earl pictures moved into his new Condo in Cocoa Beach.

I figured, we’ve had kind of a lull here for a while, so I’d post the rest of the Sept. 2nd, 2010 Hurricane Earl photos that Mike took at the pier. Enjoy the photos and hopefully the brief

I believe this is our local 'Noah",  8 year old perhaps, often out with Dad.  This kid has No Fear.  The stuff he paddles for and tears it up too.

Almost a bowl there, certainly a little overhanging lip there.
