TUESDAY afternoon is shaping up to be the Gift for us All! More down below, but for a Tuesday (03/12) morning 8:10 AM update; the winds will be lousy at the Cape only until about 3 PM. (maybe a little before) Why? South and SSW winds are onshore for us, until SSW becomes more SW. But since the SSW winds are too strong, it will be sem-choppy anyhow until 2 or 3 PM, my bet is 4 PM. Then we should see Waist to Chest high at the Cape, and Chest to Head High Plus in Satellite Beach. The best time to paddle out, is 4 PM to 5 PM. Get off work, and enjoy 2 or so hours of big glassy waves, and enjoy Nature’s Happy Hour! (thus ends the Tuesday morning surf update, all below was created the other day )
The video, we created (no Tripod used, apologies) with some Clips/Highlites from the Saturday portion of the Ron Jon’s Beach n Board Fest, Quiksilver Surf Contest, and more. NOTE: YOUTUBE DEFAULTS AT LOW REZ 360p, SO BE SURE TO CLICK THE 4 FROM RIGHT BOTTOM ICON, FOR HD 720p 🙂
Monday, looks to remain Chest high to over head at the Cape, and still 1 to 3 feet overhead in Satellite Beach, with 9 to 15 mph SE winds, starting low at daybreak and increasing to mid-afternoon.
Tuesday, Chest high plus at the Cape, and Head high to 2 feet overhead in Satellite Beach. Rain in the morning until noon with winds from the South in the 10 to 15 mph range, slowly switching to SSW until 2ish, and hopefully total OFFSHORE AND SW by 2 or 3 PM in the 10 to 12 mph range. Then the winds start working there way to WSW until dark. So from 2 PM until dark (which is now around 7:30 or so, yeah daylight savings 🙂
Wednesday and Thursday, still should have some sizeable leftovers, but the winds are looking to be in the 15 to 20 mph NNW range Wednesday morning.
I just had to add this Anderson Cooper, interview of Garrett McNamara, about his 100 foot wave ride on January 29, 2013.
Enjoy and pray for an Epic Tuesday afternoon to hold true!
