A nice chest high I hope to see on the larger sets Wednesday morning at Johnson Ave.

The 120 buoy has hit 11 feet twice at 13 to 14 seconds since 5 PM, and the 20 mile is too soon to expect the swell from the 120 buoy yet.  Since the last 11 foot reading at the 120 was 7:20 PM tonight which would take 6 hours maybe 7 to hit the 20 mile buoy,  so  I just have to accept that the swell angle was a little to steep today and that big Cape sticking out there doesn’t want to let things come thru.   I thought it might be chest high by dark, but it never really climbed above waist high from the 2 times I checked it today, and one 2 hour session out.  But it was fun, even though it closed out pretty quick.

In Satellite, I expect to see at least one of this size to roll thru for Wednesday morning for us.

Wednesday, maybe the extra 16 ° removed from the angle will let the brunt of the swell in.   It went from 56 degree to 72, so maybe that’s east enough to let it in Wednesday.

Wednesday, I still believe that it will hit some chest high sets for the Cape and head high in Satellite with some overhead sets.  I put some pictures in here that I feel will show the expected swell size and form.

The water was warm today 68, and Wednesday air temps looking to be 79 by mid-day, but about 66 degree for a 9 am recommended paddle out time.  High going low, with high tide at 7:52 AM, so 9 am water time, with SW winds at 7 mph for Cocoa Beach going SSW at noon at around 9 mph.  The Cape winds look to hold about the same winds with only about a 3 or 4 hour window of SW winds, and then SSW by noon onward.

Have a great sesh!
