CHUCK – PHOTO GALLERY

Hurricane Rafael should be sending us some Chest to Head High waves with some glass Tuesday…more in a minute

These photos I took at J-Ave from around 11:30 to 12:30 Pm. Monday morning October 15, 2012 , they are the remains of our outgoing swell, with the piggyback of Hurricane Rafael coming in.  I got pictures of 3 or 4 people but these were a range of thigh to shoulder high drops/waves.  Chuck had some really nice long rides come thru on this session 🙂

Tuesday morning at DAWN PATROL, we should have some NW to NNW winds in the 6 to 12 mph range from chest to head high from the Cape going to Satellite Beach By 10 AM (here at the Cape), the winds turn North, so anywhere South, the winds will be sideshore to onshore.  Best best is the Jetty to 4rth Street North.  Minuteman causeway, NNW winds are usually onshore winds or sideshore at best.

Anyhow Tuesday, I am calling Rib to Chest high at the Cape, and Head High down South.  It is hard to tell if the long period part of Rafael has hit the 120 mile buoy, I don’t think it will really hit till late tonight.  Winds start offshore SW at around 4 mph at 11 PM tonight, and by 8 AM tuesday moring, they wrap around to NW and NNW by 9 AM, so DAWN PATROL IS CRITICAL!  Plus, the tide will be low going high (high tide around 8:45 AM Cocoa Beach),  so a 7 AM paddle out is best, else, high tide with onshore winds is your option by 10 AM 🙂
Wednesday morning should be bigger than Tuesday 5 foot at 13 second period, so that’s a powerful swell, with Shoulder high at the Cape (with bigger sets), and Overhead sets in Satellite Beach. (Satellite Beach could see some 2 to 3 foot overhead rogue sets)  The winds are North for Wednesday morning, up until maybe 8:30 to 9 AM in the 8 mph to 10 range which is slight offshore for the Cape down to 4rth Street North, and onshore South of Minuteman Causeway.

Thursday morning could be rib to chest high from the Cape to Satellite, with offshore winds for the Cape to 4rth Street North.

We should have waves thru the weekend, but it’s too early to tell on the winds.  Tonight, if I see any wind change for Tuesday AM, I’ll do a quick update.

I hope you enjoy the photos/surf pictures of brother Chuck here at the Cape.
