Wednesday February the 22nd, for 3 days straight has appeared to be the “Big Sweet Day”…..Glassy at some point on Wednesday, and chest to head high waves, ranging from North to South….I’ll continue this update below…
JOHNSON AVENUE UNKNOWN SURFER – GALLERY , Here’s a plug for Old-timers…The photos gallery here are from February 5, Sunday, from Johnson Ave. I have some days that my pop ups are lookin the same, I don’t know who this is, but I’m stoked to see him out there.
A friend of mine through my church, Greg, had to quit surfing a little over three years ago cause it kept blowing out his shoulder. He turned 90 years old in 2011. He was hired the First year of N.A.S.A. , an Electrical Engineer I believe, and when N.A.S.A. was started in 1958, and he had surfed from then time until 2008 some time.
Of course the reason he quit was because at 87, he also plays tennis 2 or 3 times a week, and since surfing is inconsistent and works your shoulders pretty hard, he’d best choose doing something where he could at least use his shoulder more consistently. SO THERE YA GOT IT, WE HAD TO DO A PLUG FOR OLD OLD TIMERS 🙂
Surf Update for Tuesday thru Thursday (2/21 – 2/23)…Tuesday morning we’ll have an ENE windswell showing some waist high waves maybe rib here at the Cape, and chest high down South until late afternoon when the full blown ground swell should hit. Before dark, we may have some just overhead faces down South and chest high plus here at the Cape, with ESE winds in the 7 to 10 mph range probably. The winds actually look to be backing down to under 10 mph thru the close of Tuesday day.
Wednesday, we ought to have some solid chest high lines at the Cape with some bigger sets, and shoulder to overhead down South in Satellite Beach, 2nd light. Winds sometime Wednesday maybe at day break, could go SSW around 10 mph, so your best call is somewhere South of 8th Street South to enjoy offshore winds. The Cape will probably have really clean form but not quite glass. SSW is kind sideshore to offshore for us. If you can make it South, awesome, it should be fun everywhere 🙂
Thursday, could have waist to chest high leftovers , North to South, with strong offshore winds in the 15 mph plus range.
Air & Water temps: Monday the air temps at the Cape show 53 ° at daybreak with 15 mph NNW winds (feels like 48), getting up to 65 ° by the high point. Tuesday looks to be 58 ° at daybreak climbing to 72 by mid-day, and the water temp will be 68 ° near shore. Wednesday, air temp warm up to about 77 for a high, so for 2 weeks from March, these are awesome warm temperatures and consistent waves. Get Excited !!
Hope ya enjoy the pics 🙂
