Triple overhead to 80 foot faces works best at Mavericks on a NW swell :)

Triple overhead to 80 foot faces works best at Mavericks on a NW swell 🙂

  At Mavericks, it breaks best with a NW swell from triple overhead to 80 foot faces before it starts closing out and getting dangerous.  Hey, check out the chart.  I wouldn’t kid you about something like that 😉  Their water temp is around 52°,  with a 12 foot at 12 second period swell with onshore winds, and my guess, 20 foot faces right now on the sets.  

A nice chest high wall that held up a long time for this guy.  May not look pretty :) Image 1 of 7 shot sequence.

Our Surf;  we have 67.5 to 68 degree water for Sunday morning, and Rib to Shoulder high waves for the afternoon Sunday.  Winds, at 2 to 3 PM are showing 16 mph NNW at the Cape.  Air temp, 53°, with a 48 ° feels like temperature.  But, it should be fairly glassy.   I give it a 60 to 70 % chance that the winds do let the swell actually hit our beaches.   Could be a fun session with a low crowd factor 🙂

Monday morning, if the swell is permitted to hit our beaches, it could be some glassy leftovers with size, it doubt any bigger than waist high anywhere.

The Photos here are from the ENE swell on February 4rth 2012 at Hightower’s, where we had rib to shoulder high waves with some overhead faces on the drops.

I think he did a 360, but the little hole in the viewfinder doesn't let me see anything until the ride is done.  Image 5 of 7.  Oldwaverider
