Teahupoo finally had a huge day after a year has passed.  Magicseaweed.com has this awesome gallery of some locals, and some big wave names that caught this swell in the last few days.  Mark Healey on this bomb.

An easterly swell east/southeast swell is starting to hit our beaches now.  Looks like it hit the minimum to classify as a ground swell at the 120 buoy at 1 Am this morning. (Tuesday morning )

It hit 3.5 @ 11 secs. ,  I just looked at the surf at the end of Johnson, at 7 Am and in another hour and a half,  the full first part of this 6 to 8 day swell should be here.  It looked thigh high on the sets and even with the light onshores, the left shoulders were holding up a little.  The waves don’t hit there size until Thursday and will continue to build a little each day from Thursday morning till at least Saturday or Sunday, maybe even Monday  🙂

Thursday morning should be the first big day of the swell,  with light 5 to 7 mph SSE winds, with 3.5 to 4.0 feet at 10 seconds hitting the beach.   Satellite Beach and Patrick at mid-tide should provide some solid chest high waves.

And,  looks like we’ll have waves all thru the Easter Surf Fest/contest, with maybe some showers on Sunday, but not too much.  As it stands right now, I don’t see a day where the winds will turn offshore yet, but as the swell moves in we’ll let ya know.

Anyhow, we’ll keep ya posted with the winds and as the second and third stages of the swell come in.

Sorry no pics here.  Okay, I snagged one tonight, check out the awesome gallery that was just posted to Magicseaweed.com today here.  In a hurry this morning.

Later,
