Today was Chest high peaks peeling left and right, with A-frames at Hightowers 🙂   Well, it would have been nice if we had direct offshore winds, but…close enough, a little SSE to S, maybe SSW light.  Only 8 or 10 of us out, and again, I didn’t even need a wetsuit, the water was hanging around 69 ° again.

The first set of photos are from an Unknown Surfer to me, at Johnson Ave on a nice right.  (maybe one day I’ll find out the names of the unknowns 🙂  The Johnson Avenue photos were taken about 12:30 PM, around 40 minutes past low-tide.

The second part of the slideshow, is from Hightower Beach with a guy on a chest to shoulder high left.  I took those around 10:15, after the winds turned SSE from calm, so it wasn’t as glassy as when I first paddled out around 8:30.

The rights and lefts were working great, the lefts maybe had some more juice to them.

Nice style of this unknown Wave Carver :)  Image 3 of 6 in sequence.

Monday may have some knee to waist high glass with a high period in the daybreak AM to kick up the power.  The winds turn offshore just after Mid-nite, out of the SW and coming around to WNW at daybreak in the 3 to 7 mph range.  By 9 or 10 AM, it appears to turn onshore out of the SSE.

I don’t think the winds will blow the remaining swell flat overnight, so fingers crossed for some knee to waist high waves,  Cape to Satellite Beach respectively 🙂

After Monday’s leftover’s, I don’t see much of anything down the Pike, except some knee high plus stuff for the Pier.
