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 berib 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 Festival which 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)
