Tuesday, I did a late 3:30 PM session in Satellite Beach, and even with 12 to maybe 15 mph onshore winds, there were some very fun lines/peaks coming in. The waves were 3 to 4 foot backs, so an occasional head high face did roll thru. It was past mid-tide high going low, and only 3 of us out, sunny and a great session.
Today, had some nice waist high plus lines at the pier, but I only enjoyed it thru the cams 😉
Thursday we still have some punch left with our 9 to 10 second period 4.5 foot swell all of the day.
We should have more waist high to rib waves at the Cape or the Pier, and a little bigger South. Winds, back down even more, to the 6 to 8 mph range, East, and start climbing up toward 9 to 12 mph, after 9 or 10 AM. (can we try to put a few more numbers into one paragraph? 😉
Friday, (or actually late Thursday night, the swell we have starts pulling away slowly), and Friday thru Sunday, a very mild Easterly swell will push toward us, to keep us with something rideable for the next 4 or 5
days, but do to the weaker swell, the right time of tides will be a lot more important than the strong swell we have thru Thursday (tommorrow). It still should be thigh high here at the Cape and waist high down South in Satellite Beach. Winds Friday, 6 to 8 mph ENE climbing toward 10 to 12 mph East by late afternoon.
I still don’t see any offshore days in the picture, so just like this week, I didn’t jump on the Surf Report binge too hard knowing that everyone new we’d have waves, but no “epic” day in sight if you will.
The photos here are on a nice wave and ride of Dr. John, from our awesome chest high day Saturday, March 10th, when the whole neighborhood was out surfing, at some time or another.
Hump day is over!
