NOTE AND APOLOGY;  WHEN I DON’T CHANGE OR UPDATE MY BLOG REPORT WHEN WE HAVE A MAJOR SWELL COMING (the last one was Friday), ITS BECAUSE NOTHING HAS CHANGED.  I’LL TRY TO MENTION THAT WHEN I LEAVE A POST UP FOR A FEW DAYS LIKE THAT….oldwaverider

Ophelia says she will be on schedule…the big glassy day still looks like Tuesday, then Wednesday.

The wait...

The wait...

Monday morning ain’t looking as pretty for up North.   The Cape ought to see waist high plus waves in the morning, and chest to shoulder in Satellite.  Winds are whats not pretty.  Expect South winds around 8 to 10 mph at the Cape and Cocoa Beach same, but a 2 or 3 hour window of SSW, surprisingly, Satellite Beach is showing SSW winds from daybreak till 11.  For the Cape, that’s sideshore/onshore, but maybe we’ll get a surprise of a SW gust or two.  By evening it ought to be cranking overhead down South and kicking up maybe chest high plus at the Cape.

Tuesday, ahhhhhh, I hope it holds.  It has been showing head high to overhead for 4 days now for down South, so maybe chest to shoulder high plus at the CapeThe winds look to be SW at daybreak around 8 mph swinging West down to about 3 or 4 mph, and then onshore by Noon or 1.

Wednesday still looks West in the morning, and shoulder high down South, waist to stomach at the Cape.  The winds ought to be pretty light, like less than 6 or 7 mph.

Thursday could also be totally ridable because the animated swell period chart which always follows the swell moving chart with a day of delay, tells me that we will still have a little waist high power.

The pics are taken by my friend Jenna with a water camera, on the last day of Maria at Lori Wilson Park.   It was chest high plus down South, but I figured Lori would be a good place to learn.  Jenna and her brother Travis tried surfing and both got up and rode in numerous times, pretty awesome.  I’ve been wanting to get Jenna to try it for a while, and hoorah, she nailed it 🙂

Anyhow, enjoy Ophelia and take pics and videos and feel free to send em to me.
