AWESOME, TOTALLY AWESOME Waves today in Satellite Beach…
It was beautiful everywhere, but this ENE swell really delivered at Perkins, Hightowers and RC’s. The consistent sets came in around 7 to 8 foot faces, and I’d say every 5 or 10 minutes a 9 to 10 foot face came in, and I believe I saw a rare 12 foot face set come in, (unless the guy in the photo I’ve posted in the second sequence of photos below, was only 3 feet tall 🙂 This first sequence was probably a 9 foot face at the peak. I love the third sequence, it’s like he’s saying, crap, I guess I should’ve let this one roll by 😉
Anyhow, it was really nice sitting on the deck, watching only 5 or 6 guys out on the most beautiful powerful, glassy swell, maybe just a slight texture to the water since it was NW winds coming in on a South wind break, but heh, who cares 😉 Oh, and the Sun was coming down nice too. Most people were doing rash guards or a vest, and that’s it. The water temp is 71 now so that is a peg below Spring Water.
Friday, don’t expect much. No forecast today cause the wind swell coming in looks kinda weak, sloppy, no real size or offshore winds. Am I being a snob discussing the future here ? My bad. I was just so stoked today, and also crying at the same time since I couldn’t paddle out do to the necessity of licking my rib wounds from last Friday 😦
It’s all good 🙂
I’ll post some pics of some nice rides at the Cape too, here probably Friday 🙂
