Today was Awesome, Waist to Shoulder high, depending on how far south you went 🙂 Johnson Ave had one of those rare days, where the form held tight and perfect for 3 or 4 hours, and very light onshore winds, with long lines, and a few hundred yard rides to be had, well, on a longboard. Below is a video I shot of the pier this morning from 9 to 10 AM.
Waves Sunday? Down below…
Weather.com is showing 6 to 8 mph offshore winds, SSW turning SW by maybe 9 or 10. MSW is showing twice that on wind speed, so I guess we’ll see which model shows up first. I go with weather.com Anyhow; Sunday should be some knee to thigh high for the Cape, and waist high plus down south. Enjoy, I believe it’s the last day of this swell 🙂
Saturday morning, light NNE winds in the 3 to 5 mph range, and it could be offsore N to NNW up North here until 8 AM, and catch this! 17 hours ago, the 20 mile buoy said 5.2 feet at 11 seconds, well, at 9:50 PM tonight (Friday), it also said 5.2 feet at 11 seconds! And the nearshore buoy said 2.6 feet at 11 seconds at 1:30 this afternoon, well, at 9:50 tonight, it also said 2.6 feet at 11 seconds. The Fort Pierce buoy has held the same too, St. Augustine has dropped from 5 feet something at their 40 mile, to 3.6 at 11 seconds, but they get most North or South swells first anyhow. So, with the longer period coming in at midnight tonight, at 10 seconds, we should see some waist to chest high waves Saturday with some nice lines. Low tide at 3:10 am is the low low tide for the day, and the 9:35 high tide is the high high tide for the day, so that may , hold back some, but my best guess, is dawn patrol gets the biggest stuff, then it drops some, and then in late afternoon, it will pick back up, but with 5 to 7 mph winds. Should be fun!
Sunday should still have thigh to waist high plus sets and offshore in the morning 🙂
Today was really fun! Waist to Shoulder high, with a few 6 inch to 1 foot overhead faces on the drop in Satellite Beach. Nice lines, lots of close outs, but you just had to let em pass by.
Upcoming Surf from Humberto, arrives Wednesday, starting in morning, (well it’s actually trickling in as we speak), but the 13-14 second period actual ground swell should hit sometime Wednesday morning… more on that down below; (it may be like 7 PM tonight, when I get the surf report in here)
The video below, is in preparation of the upcoming Big Wave tour event in Punta de Lobos Chile, and a shaper that is older than me, who still surfs big waves 🙂
Kelly Slater, in the judges stands, 11 time ASP World Champ, so yeah, I was excited even if I am 55 🙂
