This 7 shot sequence of Don, was this morning around 11 AM today at dead low tide.  Perfect glassy lines, almost looked like a ground swell, but it was a crazy 1.5 foot at 8 second swell, with offshore light winds until just before 12.

Update at 10:20 Pm Wednesday night,  it just hit 4 feet at 12 seconds at the 120 buoy, so we may be in luck if it keeps pushing in. 

Upcoming surf for Thursday morning,  a new piggyback swell, seemed to be forming a ground swell, for like 1 foot at 12 seconds as the charts show.  It hit 4 feet at 8 seconds at the 120, and was a 2.5 foot swell at 12 or 13 seconds at the 20 mile buoy, also at 8 PM.

I have seen a 1.5 foot swell at 11 seconds deliver chest high waves at Perkins this time of year.  But…………..

I give a 60 % call for some knee to thigh high sets up North here, and waist high down South in Satellite Beach.  The swell angle is 72° which isn’t to steep from the North and mostly East, so we could have some fun waves.

Mid-tide of high going low is around 8:50 AM,  and with west winds light, I don’t think it will blow it flat at all, as long as the swell does actually come all the way in 🙂

Hope ya enjoy the pics from today, and the waves on Thursday if they deliver!

I will be getting more consistent again on posts and photos.  I confess that a few new and cool factors in my life have taken me away a bit, but we are slowly getting focus back 🙂
