I’ll post more in the next week from a couple killer rides by Sunny, and Rip Van Mike who finally woke up after a few broken bones.  He still ain’t over the hill, but I’ll save that for another day.  It needs to be handled with care 🙂

Nice wave, the third shot it closed out, but the short burst looked really fun.  Image 2 of 2 shot sequence.  Photos by Oldwaverider

It was an awesome session late today!   Started out rib to occasional chest high at the Cape, beautiful sets,  nice drops with a few turns and a quick exit.  I just watched and shot some images.

Ron I believe.  Perfect form and smooth style for the "out of towner", just kidding.  Image 1 of 5 in sequence.

Then Chad and I headed down South for an 11 AM sesh, and for the first half hour it was like 1 in 15 waves were makeable at best, but nice head high faces on the drop with a quick closeout, and then it changed.  It started to hold up a little better, maybe 1 in 8 would hold up,  and then we got some of those 70 to 100 yard shoulders pumping most and some times all the way to the beach.  Almost all lefts.  A few select rights.  Brother Chad nailed at least 2 or 3 of em in the 100 yard plus range, with one solid, did I say solid?; 150 yard right from far outside, all the way to 1 foot deep water, and used that as his bus ride in 🙂  He smoked it.   I got the perfect left (except for a small epileptic surge on a few re-entries)  to take me most of the way in 🙂  A bunch of rail-grabbing left take-offs for chasing speed up high on the wave.

Most of the outside sets were shoulder high, and maybe a head high set rolled thru every now and then.  See new chart, compliments of thewavecaster.com here.

Surf Thursday is looking to be maybe thigh at the Cape and waist in Satellite.  Strong strong offshore winds.  They may even blow it flat tonight, but I suspect there may be a trickle for 2 hours in the morning and then done…………………

Well it don't look like he's gonna climb past the peak, but he definitely got the best place for speed !  Image 5 of 5 shot sequence, Ron, Feb. 22 Wednesday morning.

He tried his best.  This was one of 3 guys I met on the boardwalk.  They are doing the Engineer program from UCF.  Trying to forget Differential Equations :)  They were surfing North of Chad and I during their first session.   Image 3 of 3
