Rafael swell jumped at the 120 buoy at 4:30 PM to 9.5 ft at 14 secs, Surf Video of Chuck down south of 2nd Light, one sweet left wave, Hurricane Rafael should send us chest to head high on Tuesday w some glass, Tuesday morning Surf Report Update 10/16/12 1100 AM, Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach (October 16, 2012 posted)


UPDATE AT 4:30 PM, OCTOBER 16TH , TUESDAY AFTERNOON/NIGHT!  The waves jumped 50% in size since this morning and doubled in power, from 6 feet at 10 seconds at 8 AM to 9.5 feet at 14 seconds, at the 120 mile buoy.

The Rafael swell should be building a little today, it was sluggish at high tide this morning, but we tried to catch the winds offshore down south for the early size.  It was almost flat at the Cape this morning, and very small at the pier.  But south of 2nd light, it was waist to chest high, with a few bigger drops.  I took some video of Chuck, and will compile a full video, but for now, this is a nice left that he caught on semi-glass waist high wave 🙂

Wednesday should be bigger, shoulder high at the Cape to 1 to 2 foot over head down south in Satellite Beach, with MAYBE, NNW TO N WINDS UNTIL 9 AM WHICH IS OFFSHORE FOR THE CAPE (as of 7 PM tuesday night weather channel for the Cape), THEN NNE to East winds in the morning, in the 4 to 6 mph range which should be fun and clean for the Cape. It would definitely be worth a trip down south to catch it a foot or two bigger with the light onshore winds.

Thursday morning, it should be a little smaller probably waist high at the Cape, and Shoulder high on the set waves in Satellite Beach, but we may have some glassy SSW 6 to 10 mph winds, so down south of 6th street south is your best bet if you want offshore winds. SSW is sideshore for the Cape.

Enjoy the swell.
