Monday Feb. 25 6:15 PM, Surf Report Update , plus Hurricane Sandy surf photos, Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach (February 25, 2013 posted)

WAVES FOR 5 DAYS , MAYBE!  Ground Swell rolling in, already here down south…..More on the swell, down below 🙂 WOW, They got the 120 and the 20 mile buoy working in the last couple hours! (updated comment at 9:45 PM Monday night)

The photos below are from Hurricane Sandy, in Satellite Beach, from the big day Sunday , October 28, 2012.  This was not one of the bigger sets, but it was one of the perfect formed sets for sure.  A three shot sequence, that I took with, yes, a few settings out of place on the camera.  I had to do some damage control, by dropping a “Levels” filter on it, my bad 🙂

A long period ground swell that comes from the East (not NE), has hit Fort Pierce, already in the 3.5 foot at 13 second range, and is just hitting our near shore buoy as of 6:15 PM today, (41113 buoy). The 20 and 120 mile buoy are out, so this one’s a little tricky , but since it has not hit Augustine except for jump in size from 3 to 6 feet but at 6 seconds, the ground swell has not hit them yet, but it has hit Fort Pierce, so yeah, it’s mostly an Easterly swell (as of 6 PM today) The winds are S-SE in Satellite Beach, and it looks pretty clean there, definitely bigger than waist high.

Tuesday, the swell is here for sure, with strong South winds in the 15 to 20 mph range, waist high plus at the Cape, and chest high range in Satellite Beach.  Early morning, could be clean, semi-glass in Satellite Beach when the winds are in the 10 to 15 mph South range.  Choppy at the Cape.  BUT!!!!!!!  Tuesday afternoon, along with the 30 to 50% showers, we could have SW winds here at the Cape an hour or two before dark between say 4 and 7 PM, so we have a chance of waist to rib and glassy, just before dark!

Wednesday, waist to rib at the Cape with bigger sets, and W to WNW winds in the 10 to 15 mph range. Satellite Beach should see chest to shoulder high waves, with a few head high rogue sets 🙂

Thursday, a new swell piggybacks the outgoing one, it starts rolling in Wednesday late, and we should see the same size as Wednesday for the Cape and Satellite.  The swell drops off by late afternoon Thursday, but should hang around with something thru Saturday, in the thigh to rib high range, with brisk offshore winds over 15 mph, for Thursday thru maybe Saturday.

February 10 update, plus Hurricane Sandy from big Sunday in Satellite Beach and Pure Ocean TV 2012 Photo review of Awesome Nature, Surf Report Update for Friday February 08 2013, Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach (February 08, 2013 posted)

Monday morning, South winds, and chest high and semi-glassy down south.  The Cape, with South winds, will be sideshore and half the size.  Tuesday, will be waist high down south and glassy, and thigh high maybe at the Cape and semi glassy . 

Everything below, re surf report was done Friday night, the above was a Sunday night 10:30 PM update.

Wind swell with a little size coming in Saturday night.  Today we had some knee to maybe thigh glass down south.  Sunday, it will be low period 6 or 7 second, meaning no long line, strong onshores, but it will be something to drop in on. Could see some waist to rib  high at the Cape and shoulder high down south. Monday , more of the same, and Tuesday, a chance of morning glass, if you go down south.  Water temp is 69, so it’s skinnable, if you have scales 🙂

Hurricane Sandy was rolling in 10 to 14 foot plus face sets Sunday morning, in Satellite Beach.  I shot this footage (apologies, but this was the first long distance footage, I have shot, and shooting into mostly the sun 😦  )   Anyhow, I hope you enjoy it! Oldwaverider

Pure Ocean TV, who provided a couple of videos I’ve posted here, one, the awesome 10 to 14 foot face waves video of “Frankenstorm”, Hurricane Sandy;  well they provided this awesome still image video clip of photos that they took over 2012.

It is some really nice, really nice nature shots, and some great music to go along with it.  If you like it, make sure and like it.  They do awesome work!
