Heidi’s Jazz Club, and my buddy Les playing Saxophone Friday nights, “In the Mood” song by Glenn Miller and Surf Report Update n Forecast for the Cape and Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach, …posted August 25, 2013


If you ain’t 50 or older, then you may ask, what the _ _ _ _?  Why is this guy posting a Glenn Miller song, “In the Mood” on Johnson Avenue Surfers?  We do have waves coming for Monday! See below…

My buddy here in Cape Canaveral, plays the Saxophone, and nails this classic Big Band Jazz song by Glenn Miller.  (Jimmy Stewart played the movie, which was black and white, haha).

My buddy Les is about 80 years old, and you’d never know it;  hope you enjoy it below:  (ps – I also added the original Glenn Miller band video below my buddy Les so you could compare)

He also gave me a 40 year old “Infinity” surfboard from Ocean Beach Surf Shop, where I took a surf trip back in 1979 🙂

And here is Glenn Miller, it’s a low rez video, so that’s why it’s smaller:

UPDATE: The Surf Report Below was done 2 hours ago, when the swell model was “bigger”.  Now it looks like maybe Monday afternoon it will wait to hit even CCB , and waist high is now the size call, sorry, models change every 6 hours, and the report below was from an earlier model, at the tail end of it, if u will 🙂  (This update was done at 7:38 PM EST Sunday night)

We have a very steep angle swell, a Northeast swell, that will be blocked out by the Cape, but should hit Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach well, and by late Monday, it may trickle in to us finally.  Should be a wind swell, no ground swell, but will give us some waist high waves here by Monday night, and should give us some chest high waves Monday late morning in Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach, with NE winds in the 8 to 10 mph range in the morning, so it could be fun.

Tuesday should be more of the same.  Have Fun!

Tropical Storm Erin should give some waist to possible chest high chop waves Sunday thru Wednesday, and maybe a Waist high glassy morning on Thursday, or Friday, or somewhere in there, if the storm doesn’t weaken anymore.  🙂   As soon as it gets 150 miles North of Central Florida, those winds could blow offshore and give us some glass.

CLEAN YOUR SURFBOARD !  Yes, I just stripped my Winter wax off my board, and yes, it was melting before I got it into the water during the last swell 🙂

Below is a link to a great article about cleaning your wax.  And for the final touches,  Turpentine or Gasoline works to get the residue off.  NO ACETONE OR MINERAL SPIRITS !  THAT WILL DAMAGE THE FINISH ON YOUR BOARD !

Small swell coming in Wednesday and Thursday morning, maybe thigh high down south, with 8 to 10 mph onshore winds Wednesday morning, and maybe light SSE winds Thursday morning, and a slight chance of offshore Thursday morning.  Nothing much, but the right tide, you might get a few fun little rides !

Best Video of Garretts epic Wave! Thursday evening August 01 , 9:30 PM Surf Update , Surf Report ,Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach – July 30, 2013 posted


Wednesday afternoon, the swell delayed by probably 5 hours finally came in with 5 to 7 foot faces in Satellite, though the winds did pick up a bit in the late afternoon, but I’m sure it was a lot of fun. We did a late 4 PM session at J-Ave, but it was pretty much totally unrideable.  I was kooking severely, but the form was all messed up with sections coming at different angles onto the face of each wave, so only a few percentage of waves, really had a line up here.  My neighbor and a couple of short boarders, go the best results from it.  It was not a good session for longboards, and especially, for a guy kooking at his worst.  But, my morning session in waist to occ chest high waves in Satellite Beach, very clean, was a blast, and the kook was not out then 🙂

This is the best video I have seen of Garrett Mac’s, massive record wave.  Very clean, fairly close up footage by the videographer, and it appears some go pro footage was in there too.

Friday, should have some knee to thigh high leftovers, with maybe some waist high sets in Satellite Beach.  Should be semi to glass early morning.
