DR. JOHN – PHOTO GALLERY

This phenomenal year for waves apparently doesn’t want to give up yet……The most consistent run of good waves for us all year, along with at least 6 each  10 foot face plus perfect glass waves within Brevard County shores…

Today, or this morning looks really fun, and by late afternoon we have a new possible Christmas Day swell starting to push in.  The swell is coming mostly from the East, so I don’t think we’ll get blocked out.  We may even get lucky with the new swell hitting by 1 or 2 PM and have the winds still a little offshore.  It’s SSW winds here at the Cape, yeah, kinda sideshore w a little offshore, but still looks really clean.  By afternoon anyhow, we ought to see some waist high plus waves.

Dr. John got about the only available left during the sesh.  He squeezed for about 7 or 8 shots on this ride, but the best wave shot was this one.  Photo by Oldwaverider

Saturday,  should produce some waist to chest high sets, and right now, the winds are showing W to NW until 9 AM Saturday here at the Cape, turning NNW till maybe 11 or 12 and then North. (6 to 8 mph then increasing to 10 to 15 mph once it goes N to NNE)

This was one of the bigger waves of the session, the lip tried to take control, but the rider would not give in :) Image 1 of 7 in sequence. Knee to thigh high swell on Johnson Avenue, December 23 2011, Photos by Oldwaverider.

Christmas Day Sunday also ought to have something rideable for us, the winds we’ll have to wait and check tonight, but as it stands, it looks to be very light onshore for Sunday AM, around 7 mph SE at daybreak.

Have a great Winter Warm Water Day!  70.5°  , gotta love it 🙂
