RC’S PHOTOS FIRST

In the morning, Sunday,  we should see some chest high waves here at the Cape and Shoulder high in Satellite Beach, but more on that in a minute………….

These photos are from the epic Saturday surf provided by Hurricane Leslie, and they were taken in Satellite Beach at RC’s and also at the Cocoa Beach Pier, by my friend Mike Melito. 

Size seemed to range from 8 foot faces to very close to double overhead, but maybe not quite.  Conditions were glassy, and those that crave big Florida Hurricane waves in Brevard, like to head to RC’s, Hightowers,  and that’s what these lucky folks did!  I was out of town, ouch, but very lucky that my friend Mike took the time to get these incredible photos.  First RC’s and then the Pier.

Perfect glassy RC's face and bottom turn, totally makeable, a happy man no doubt :)

Sunday surf;  Chest to Shoulder high with light 5 to 10 mph East winds switching to SE, but as it stands right now, they aren’t showing much more than 10 mph, so it could be very clean in the morning.

Monday, still chest high plus, with light onshore winds

TUESDAY LOOKS TO BE THE SEMI OR POSSIBLY EPIC DAY!  Rib to Shoulder high, from the Cape to Satellite Beach, with offshore SW winds, the speed, I can’t say yet, but probably less than 10 or 12 mph.

Wednesday could be a waist to chest high day with offshore winds also.

We have been blessed 3 summers in a row for waves, and of course, the Hurricanes are that special gift, so enjoy it while it’s epic.
