Okay, it’s a no brainer that we’ll have big, most likely overhead waves for the next 5 to 7 days…I surfed by the Jetty on Monday afternoon at high tide, for an hour, caught some 20 mph N to NW winds on some stomach high waves, and it was fun. Only got 2 or 3 rides, it was just nice to have a semi-functional set of lumbars working around 60% 🙂
The photos are some more that I took from October 2nd, when Hurricane Ophelia gave us round two. Someone please let me know who the woman is out there on these photos. That day there were 4 or 5 unknown people in the water except Dr. John. The photos are a 3-shot sequence of woman on a nice shoulder high backside ride.
Okay, back to incoming surf…
This is what’s exciting, this NE ‘str wind swell stuff turns into a ground swell late Thursday afternoon.
Friday is setting up to be overhead waves and glassy. Solid overhead. The winds, well I won’t know for sure until Wednesday morning.
Wednesday morning, we should see a foot or more overhead in Satellite, so we should expect some chest to shoulder high sets at the Cape. The angle of the swell isn’t too North, so I think we’ll keep our nice size waves here at the Cape. Winds aren’t supposed to be too bad. 12 mph NE winds in the morning and afternoon so that looks pretty stable. So if you could paddle out right at high tide, the paddle out is easy, and the shoulders are fairly clean. Low tide, a washing machine most likely.
Thursday, the waves are bigger, maybe 2 foot overhead down South, and solid head high at the Cape. The winds look to be very light, NNE to NE around 4 mph, so there could be a shot of offshore winds up North 🙂
Friday, is looking like the EPIC DAY, potential. (gotta have that lawyer disclaimer in there, though my surf brethren around here go easy on me if I’m off a foot on the size 🙂 It may be 3 feet overhead in Satellite Beach with West to NW winds around 5 to 10 mph until noon at least. (BUT, that’s a wind call out 3 days, and I won’t know about the winds for that 80% call until Wednesday night). The Cape ought to see some head high plus waves and with West to NW winds, it should be epic here.
Saturday still looks overhead, but with very light East winds, maybe around 5 to 8 mph in the morning and increasing throughout the day. But, we’ll have to see Thursday for that iffy wind call.
That’s all for now. Still more waves probably, but I’d be totally speculating past this point, hah.
Have a great Tuesday!
