When we first got to RC’s North at 7:15-7:30, the lines were epic! I had to earnestly look for a closeout. After my 2 hours, yes, the closeouts began. When I started to shoot footage; but there were still plenty of Waves holding up still from 10 – 12 PM!
(NOTE: To see the best quality, click two of the lower right YouTube icons on the controls. Click the gear and choose at least 720P or if u have great bandwidth go for 1080P. Also choose the “Full Screen” icon on the far right, and then start the video over so the quality kicks in. YouTube defaults at 360P and I can’t blame them! Turn your volume up too for the Music)
The crowds were nill, yeah, the paddle out and the sets looked intimidating (for Florida, LOL), but when you see perfect 6-9 foot faces , with a 10 foot face thrown in every 15 minutes or so, heading back North to Cocoa Beach and the Cape did not seem like an option 🙂
Today, we have waist to chest high plus with winds SW at 2nd light wind monitor at the base, and that was around 6 at 8:30 AM, which already changed from WNW. Get out while you can!
Great Hurricane; though I do hope and pray Bermuda came out okay …
