Sunday morning should be the day! Saturday was a dissapointment, except maybe for folks at the pier. But there was still some 50 yard rides for all, in other North breaks. The problem was caused by a secondary swell, that was aiming North to South from 3 am Saturday till maybe 3 Pm , a swell that was 3.5 feet at @ 6 seconds. So that was putting the bump in the middle of the swell in the morning , more noticeable down south, but took the juice out of much of the swell even up North.
Here’s a video compilation of Big Wednesday of Ida, with a nice soundtrack by Guerilla Jazz, called “One Day We’ll Be gone”, they are from Maui, Hi.
Sunday , the Hurricane Joaquin has dropped a little in size models, and now it also looks like the “size” arrives at it’s Peak, by around Noon to maybe 2:30 Pm or so. We have a secondary swell, but a very minimal one pointing south again, but I don’t think it will cause much issue, not like today anyhow. We do have West winds at the 120 buoy, so that could hold back some of the swell. I think we can look for Shoulder high plus at the Pier, with some bigger sets, and Satellite Beach should see some 10 foot rogue sets, with a lot of 6-9 foot sets. The winds shoudl be WNW at daybreck around 8 to 10 mph, switching to West down to around 6 to 8 mph.
Monday and Tuesday look big and fun also. Enjoy, and watch out for the bait fish predators!
