What’s going on with Saturday and Sunday morning with Hurricane Leslie part two, building?.…………………Morn in a second on that;
These photos are from Satellite Beach from Thursday morning, after the glass took a turn when the winds switched to South or SSE. It was perfect chest high to head high waves, and my buddy Mike and I, caught a number of 150 yard rides from outside, all the way in. PPPPPPPPPPerfect surf!!!!!!!!!! The surfer is an unknown, but this was the size on the set waves.
The swell will definitely build back up a bit by Saturday, and appears to peak Saturday after dark thru Sunday morning. The storm has de-intensified some, meaning, the double overhead surf for Saturday night or Sunday is gone, but…………………………………. I believe we will still have some 3 foot overhead rogue sets on Saturday and Sunday.
Today is chest high to maybe some head high sets down south (from a morning visual report I got around 8 AM, and very glassy with SW winds. The winds ought to stay offshore until Noon.
Saturday, should be shoulder to head high at daybreak and building thru the day, with 3 foot overhead rogue sets by evening and for Sunday. Winds are SW for Saturday morning in the 5 to 8 mph range, and increasing to 10 or so by Noon. It may stay SW until well after Noon, and then the typical switch to onshore.
Sunday, head high to 2 or 3 foot overhead on the rogue sets with SSW winds, maybe SW winds until late morning, at over 10 mph, so it won’t be as carefree as Saturday, but still should be great.
Monday, should also be overhead and have offshore winds (down south at least on the winds), but by 9 or 10, they may go onshore as the new swell from Hurricane Mike starts sweeping in.
Tuesday and Wednesday, should be big and overhead, but hard onshore winds.
One week of chest to overhead surf with morning glass; when’s the last time that happened from one particular swell/storm?
Enjoy the weekend, and catch the morning epic glass. A gift from God I call it 🙂
