Great waves this morning at Hightowers.
Solid waist high (I’m 6′ 3″ tall for the record) with an ocassional stomach to maybe a chest high wave came thru. A 7 to 8:30 session with only 1 other person out! Glassy, with both lefts and rights working great.
NO JELLY FISH AT ALL!
You could pass up the close-outs, and mostly just take the ones that would hold up all the way to the beach. (longboard) But the short-boarder I was out with was getting long rides too, so long or short boards worked great.
Strange, it was dead high tide, and yet the waves were working great, not holding back or any problem.
Forecast for Thursday; the winds this morning were a total fluke. So this one’s gonna be tough. It was supposed to be 8 mph onshore east winds at daybreak, but instead it was 2 to 4 mph wnw this morning.
The 120 buoy is telling me that we should still have some waist high waves at least down south for Thursday. The winds from weather.com are showing 6 to 8 mph ene at daybreak, depending on the Cape to Satellite Beach.
But, with this high pressure that just slid in above us, we may have fluke glassy waves in the morning, so the wind call is totally iffy.
Waves for the Cape, maybe knee to thigh. Looks like we have maybe 2 more days of this wind swell. Enjoy it while you can.
