CHAD SURFING VIDEO, WITH LUKE FROM JACKSONVILLE
We had to drive South after checking out the end of the street. I mean, come on, how often do we get a solid chest high plus ground swell in the summer in Florida? 🙂 , Don’t get me wrong, J-Ave looked fun, but if we were gonna film a ground swell we might as well film it a couple feet bigger on the face so………………………we headed down to Satellite Beach to my favorite break, we did paddle out late 😦
But we pulled up at 8:45 AM, offshore SW winds 5 mph, a ground swell rated at 3.5 feet at 10 seconds, and we could see plenty of chest high waves (shoulders) with quite a few shoulder high sets.
It was time for a double take, what!!!!!!, NO ONE OUT! So what does any normal person do, they hurry out before the winds change. What a great session, yeah 90% closeouts, so that just meant, you let 8 waves pass you by, and take one close-out for the insane bottom turn and kick-out, and hope the next one will give ya a 100 yard ride or more. But, I confess, there was only a couple of those which is rare under these conditions, but the plentiful 50 to 75 yard plus rides with quick walls made for a great session and day. I only surfed one hour, and then came in to start filming, by then the winds switched out of the South, but still had really clean semi-glass conditions.
Surf Update……….We should have some knee to waist high waves for then next few days Wed thru Friday maybe, with an offshore breeze for a couple hours. This Low Pressure system is kind enough to linger so enjoy it while it lasts 🙂
Hope you enjoy the video, and the surfing by Chad and Luke.
