TS Maria update…How the Waves were today; The Cape and Cocoa Beach got blocked out today, big time. 😦
I surfed Lori Wilson Park, and it was fun for awhile, thigh to occasional waist high, glassy. Definitely less closeouts than the last 3 days.
O’ Club was solid chest high and there was some shoulder high sets according to a couple of friends that surfed there.
TS Maria is now following the familiar cane alley as the last few. Definitely not a reason to get complacent 🙂 (a natural alarmist thing maybe)
Wednesday appears to be the biggest day. The image here shows the model at Stormpulse.com with Maria East and slightly North of Jacksonville, 650 miles out as a Category 2. Based on that position, Wednesday morning could be the big day with offshore winds. The storm generally needs to be east of us and slightly North to have more Westerly than NW’ly winds. (Grammar and Spell check is not an option. These posts take an OCD person 45 minutes 🙂
Thursday could be the second , but smaller glassy day.
The storm is moving WNW at 16 mph, not that that is interesting data, but it is moving faster than Katia, so thus less days of glassy waves, but we’ll see.
Anyhow, I hope y’all got some of the best waves of your Florida surfing life. I got my best Florida ride at O’ Club Wednesday.

Rest up, another Cane is on the Way…
