WEDNESDAY NIGHT UPDATE!  No update 😉  Not really, I’ll go with whatever I wrote below.  Good news on the offshore winds day.   It should be 12 days from today ;(  no,   Just kidding!

But,  Saturday and Sunday both like they have a potential to be double overhead days depending if your willing to do a session in Satellite Beach, and paddle out into 20 to 30 mph ENE winds 🙂

I have no doubt that with a few of the days that its a little smaller, like 2  feet overhead,  and a paddle out right at dead high tide,  there could actually be a fun session with especially long rides (more of a longboard type session mentality that is saying this 🙂

Anyhow, no changes in the report. 

DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE CAPE CANAVERAL FRIDAY FEST THIS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7TH. 6 to 10 PM.  Live entertainment will include “Mo Geetz” on Taylor Avenue & “Lonnie & Delinda” on Poinsetta Avenue.

Thursday morning, looks like chest high at the Cape with some shoulder to head high drops, getting a little more mellow in power toward late afternoon, winds are showing at the Cape to be less than 20 mph ENE before Noon.  Realistically, I make the call that a 2 PM paddle out would be the most user friendly paddle out getting close to High Tide with winds still less than 20 mph. (provided the Thunder Showers don’t kick in around then)

Monday nights report from 2 days ago starts below….

From Monday…Huge ENE swell starts rolling in Tuesday night which should show some substantial stomach to chest size waves on the beach by Wednesday morning at the Cape.  More on the incoming swell in a moment…

The photos here are from Johnson Avenue Sunday October 2nd (for archiving purposes the date was yesterday) taken at 2 times, around 10 Am and then after church around 12 PM,   from round two of Hurricane Ophelia.  We had some waist to stomach high waves early to mid-morning, and by 11 or 12 the size jacked up with some chest high waves with a few bigger rogue sets, here at the Cape and Johnson Ave.

Most of the folks in the water were unknown to me except Dr. John who was out during my 10 AM photo session, whom some of you saw his photo gallery posted Sunday afternoon.  Most of the shots I got were from the 12 PM session, 3 people including some girl dressed in Florida Gator colors,  an older guy (at least he looked older , like me :),  and one other person.  Some shortboarders were riding the shorebreak but the waves barely broke 50 feet before total dump closeout.

My apologies to any of the shortboarders,  the waves just weren’t breaking for any even halfway decent quality pictures to show up.  (quality as far as wave, not the surfer ability or photographer 😉  At least the winds were NNW to NW, and stayed glassy until Noonish.

Okay, Wednesday, waves should be waist to chest high at the Cape and head high down south, and building thru Thursday morning with NE onshore winds 10 to 15 mph;  then it gets weird.   The period of the swell weakens, and changes from ground swell 12 seconds to a 6 second period.  The size builds Friday and Saturday to possible double overhead down south,  and a little smaller at the Cape.   The power of the swell starts climbing late Friday night and on Saturday and Sunday to 9 seconds.

Most of that was meaningless I know,  because the winds will be mostly NE in the 15 to 25 mph range from  Thursday into the weekend, and mostly less than 15 mph on Wednesday.

Once we have an idea of when the winds may turn offshore we’ll fill ya in on that.  For now,  enjoy the huge chop,  and try to catch it, around high tide ,  a couple hours before during and a couple hours after.  At least the paddle out will be most gentle when it’s close to high tide.
