The photos here are from the Cape today.  It was thigh to waist high and glassy early at the Cape, but we all got out late…Or at least I did, okay, had some work to do 🙂  Down South I haven’t heard but I assume it hit chest high solid today.  Dr. John for the first two pics, then Ron, followed by Chad.

(My apologies, I left the camera on full zoom from taking 250-300 yards out pictures down South from Hurricane Katia last Thursday,  so the centering got screwed up on a lot of these pics, still learning my friends camera 😉

What is Maria gonna bring us for Wednesday and Thursday ?  Besides Sea Lice and Jellyfish? (actually I didn’t find them to annoying but for some, the reactions to the Lice were more intense)

Wednesday will be close to chest high for the Cape and Head high plus down South.  RC’s will probably have a few one foot overhead drops…yeaaaawwwwwwwww!   The Cape should have 8 mph NNW winds until around 10 AM, then onshore.  Satellite Beach is showing NW winds until 10 AM so actually, Satellite Beach with light NW winds,  that is the place to be.  It will have some overhead drops and shoulder high lines.

Thursday, about the same, the period of the swell drops a bit and maybe the size 6.4  inch drop, almost chest high Cape, head high down South.  The winds though are better,  4 to 8 mph WNW winds at daybreak so down South will have the size and form.  The winds swing around to NNW by 11 ish so don’t wait around to get out 😉

Friday, who cares?  Just kidding;  Probably waist to stomach at the Cape, and chest to shoulder high down South, and probably a few hours of offshore winds until 10.  Wednesday night I’ll have a fix on the actual wind direction and speed.

We may have a NE’ r wind swell coming in Friday and Saturday but don’t expect much from it.

The pics are from the neighborhood taken late around 9:30 to 10 AM, it was already blowing N, but still fun waves and the shoulders held up great so we may be in for a really sweet session Wed and Thurs if the swell gives us that kind of

Chad on the wave of the day...with no wax on board ;)
