Guess she's contemplating the water temp ?

Today (Saturday Feb. 4) was a great day of Onshore chest to head high surf!  North RC’s was pumping really nice today, with 4 to 6 foot faces and an occasional 7 foot plus face that rolled through 🙂   Many 70 to 100 yard rides were had by shortboarders and 1 longboarder out there.  (yours truly)

Must be passing the word about the water temp to her friends :)

I took about 250 shots today, only 6 to 8 surfers out at the most at any one time.   An easy paddle out,  which was a gift from above considering how usually  head high plus chop can be a brutal paddle out.  From 11 to 2 PM the winds were probably no more than 12 mph east by the time I left my Surf and Photo session.

I hope y’all like variety, but with only 6 surfers out there,  I had to find other photo targets, and the beach at a number of nice ladies soaking up the sun and entertaining their kids or nieces, nephews 🙂

Hey,  one Surfer Girl skinned it surfing there in a 2 piece, and she said she was fine until she got to the boardwalk and the winds started hitting.  It was warm out there today, nice 🙂

Sunday Surf;  looks like a solid waist high to maybe rib high for the Cape and chest to shoulder high in Satellite Beach.  The winds are now looking to be direct South winds from the Cape to Satellite.   As y’all know,  South winds are slight offshore for the South

Streets (4rth st south to 16th) but are 6 to 10 degrees offshore for Satellite Beach when you go South of 2nd light.  The winds are looking to be 5 to 7 mph South at daybreak, possibly SSE until 8 AM, then South around 5 to 7.   So it could easily be SSW for an hour or two until mayb 9 AM.

It was a great, Sunny and uncrowded family day too :)

The Cape,  we may have some SSW by 9 or 10 Am for an hour or two, but that comes with 30 to 50 % Isolated Thunder Storms.  South winds are onshore for the Cape, so to catch the glass,  South of Picnic tables is your best bet.

Nice head high drop that tapered off, but still sweet. Image 1 of 5 shot sequence.  North RC's from today Saturday Feb 4, 69 degree water, gotta love it!

We've all pulled out a little too far on the drop of a steep peak;  but he played catchup real well on this one!  Image 2 of 5 in sequence.

When he dropped back in,  though it looks like white water awaiting him, but it actually build back up to a nice inside section :)  Image 5 of 5 in sequence.

One of those 1 to 2 foot overhead drop, sets outside.  No one on a longboard to snag it :(

Either way,  it should be a fun morning until the noon 50%  chance of T-Storms hit.

Have a great and blessed Sunday folks!
