Okay, so at least our waves hit Saturday morning 🙂
We should expect waist high waves at daybreak for the Cape with 5 to 10 mph ENE winds in the morning for Saturday, and chest high down south. The size builds a little throughout the day with winds only increasing to around 15 mph. It should close the day with rib high at the Cape and chest to shoulder high in Satellite Beach.
Sunday, it loses steam or power at daybreak with the swell dropping in period to 6 or 8 second period, but it should be maybe chest high at the Cape in the AM and head high down south. But by dark it will be pushing maybe double overhead in Satellite Beach with NE winds over 20 mph, ouch.
Monday, huge also, probably double overhead and winds onshore over 30 mph down south, so the smaller chop will be a gift here at the Cape. The swell drops in size all day Monday, but will stay overhead till dark for sure.
Tuesday, down South or Playalinda are the place to be. rib to chest high, with strong south winds, so the drive to Playalinda would be worth it. South winds are 32 degrees offshore at Playalinda.
Wednesday, starts out with leftover Issac, and builds thru the day with the push from Depression Joyce. Wednesday, ought to be waist high and glassy with strong offshore winds, and should pick up to chest high down south and getting glassier all day.
Yeah, I am stretching it trying to call this far out, but I feel comfortable with the calls 🙂
THURSDAY September 1st, is the 26th Annual NKF Pro AM Surf Festivalwhich has always been run by Rich Salick, who died this past July. So be sure, to help his awesome event live on, the Fest starts Thursday and runs thru Sunday, with surfing competition for all ages, boards and genders 🙂 Saturday will be a real fun day at the Pier with all the Food, Vendors, Drinks and more, so check it all out!
Have a great Surf weekend, and enjoy some big chop. It’ll put hair on your chest. (well for guys anyhow)
Surf coming, I believe, a nice possible bump for Wednesday morning…more in a sec
CHECK THIS AWESOME VIDEO THAT JUST PUMPED IN PASCUALES, MEXICO , RIGHT AFTER THE MASSIVE ESCONDIDO SWELL! You know my addiction with big wave (though this is only 10 to 15 foot, but, it’s still pumping) If you’re impatient, move the scrub bar up to 1 min 12 seconds to get to the surf 🙂
Wednesday morning should have a thigh to waist high bump, at about a ground swell, with offshore winds in the morning, starting at SW after midnight and turning to WSW by around Noon. About 9 AM is mid-tide , with high going low, which is our best scenario, high going low.
If I’m wrong, then post a comment, and I will accept my egg 🙂
Sunday morning, looks like it should have some thigh high sets here at the Cape and waist high down south in Satellite Beach.
The winds are looking mostly SW , by Midnight tonight, up to maybe 8 mph. So maybe they won’t blow the small swell flat. I will go with about a 70% chance for us to get these waves. As long as the 120 buoy stays South winds or SSE, then the small ground swell should roll in. I’ll be in bed before I can check the first real hit to the 120, though it did climb from 3 foot at 5 and 6 seconds on the swell period, on up to 3 foot at 8, and just now 2.6 foot at 8.
When it hits 10 seconds out there with a slight onshore wind to bring it in, then we should have our swell.
If I wake at 3 AM, I’ll take a look 🙂
Our visual MIni-Cam report at 8:05 am, 1 to 3 foot faces, rideable, better at the Pier, and I would guess 2 foot bigger on the face down south in Satellite Beach. If I didn’t have things to do, I would be out 🙂

We do have a few waves coming, a windswell that may blow in Saturday, very low period swell, so it may be some waist to chest high chop, and Monday night, maybe a swell…more in a sec
It wasn’t quite breaking at Johnson Ave today (Friday 8/3/2012), and I wasn’t quite ready to start work, so I took a drive down to Satellite Beach, at about 1 to 2 hours after high tide, like 10:30 to 11:30 AM, and took some surf photos of some fun looking 1 to 2.678 foot waves, fairly glassy, only 2 or 3 or 4 people out. And a few other miscellaneous photos, …
We may have a wind swell blow in Saturday sometime to bring us some waist to chest chop until maybe Sunday or so, but it is a low period wind chop, so hard to tell if it will be rideable or not. But, it’s a shot at something, so get excited.
Monday night, we may have a 1 to 1.5 day small ground swell to hit for the evening and for Tuesday morning, in the waist to chest high range. Sunday night and Monday night we’ll update the winds to see if Tuesday looks like it could be a really fun day, or just a day 🙂
Friday Fest tonight at the Cape, so make sure to go support your local Vendors at their booths!
