Surf video, and Beautiful Waves today in Satellite Beach today, Sunday 11/22/2015, posted 5:50 PM


Check out the video below of one of the beautiful waves in Satellite Beach:

 

granted, the video wasn’t from today, but it was a fantastic waist to rib high day with really long lefts, oh it was fun!  Wished I could have surfed more than an hour 🙂

We have huge 6-11 foot waves come for the next week, and maybe , just maybe we will have a day of glass …

Sunday has a strong chance of being waist to chest high and glassy in the morning, with increasing high winds after mid-morning. Posted Saturday 11/21/2015 at 8:50 PM


The 120 buoy has had some 6 foot readings in the 11 second period range as of 5:00 PM today and around 8 PM, with some 9 second readings mixed in.  So this is part two of the swell we have had,along with a new swell rolling in.

It should be offshore , turning NW in the 4-8 mph range Sunday morning.  High tide around 4:08 am, so by 7:30 it should start having some juice to it, provided no morning sickness is upon us.  I think it will be waist to rib high and fairly glassy down south.  The size up North should be more like the waist high range.

A few photos below of Hurricane Ida and Oldwaverider, shot by my buddy Mike Melito, the big day, but in my old age, some days, I don’t want to battle the 8-12 foot face days paddle out, and in this case, I headed back North to Canaveral, skipping my favorite Satellite Beach Breaks.  So i went soft a few days, 🙂

Perfect line right

 

One of the thick lip cleanup sets, that kept us inside a while :) There were some 6-9 foot faces, even up North for us at the Cape with Hurricane Ida

Thursday or Friday should provide something awesome! Posted Tuesday, morning, 10:48 AM 11/17/2015


Friday morning update.  First, we did have sneak offshore winds in Satellite Beach from like 8 to 10 am yesterday, with 1 to 2 foot over head waves, so whoever was there probably caught some great fun.  But it was not offshore at daybreak.

Today, Friday morning, 5:21 AM as I share this, we should have 8-10 mph N winds that may still have a NNW spin at daybreak, so only in CCB are the winds slightly offshore.  NNW to N winds are sideshore to onshore in South CCB and Satellite Beach.  But it should be rib to I hope chest high at the Pier.  Sunday morning, the 9-11 second period part of the swell roles in with offshore winds, so early Sunday morning should be waist high plus at pier, and chest high in Satellite Beach!

We will wait to update tomorrow.  The last swell update from the models, shows Friday back into slight onshores in the AM.  We’ll just keep watching it, as Wednesday night or Thursday morning should give us a clear picture 🙂  (updated around 4:36 PM Tuesday)

I will update later today, but Thursday was looking like the offshore day, and now the swell has varied, to show Friday morning, instead of Thursday afternoon, to be the offshore and epic day!

As it stands, Friday looks to be another nice size windswell in the chest to shoulder high range, and fortunately, the tide works for us with this swell, unlike “Kate” last week 🙂

More late, plus some shameless self photos from “Ida” 🙂

Surfing Video of Tropical Storm Kate with “The Cars” posted Sunday, November 15 2015


Tuesday , Tropical Storm Kate took a few hours after daybreak to get nice and perhaps awesome.  For those who were patient, here’s a surfing video I shot of friends and others:

 

Lots of Waves coming!  Big chop, but the ground swell in a week will provide some glass 🙂

Tuesday morning w Tropical Storm Kate looks potentially epic! Plus, 50-70 foot Belharra Surf video from the Epic Hercules swell last year! This morning is probably fun down south with south winds :) Updated Monday afternoon, 11/09/2015 at 3:00 PM


TS Kate swell update at 9:09 PM Monday nights Tuesday AM swell report.  The winds near shore just did the big drop from 15 mph SSE to 8 mph SSE,  which is huge, at letting us know that 4-6 mph West winds will be at daybreak.  Once the swell another 10 hours, it should be around 100 miles North of us, and the winds coming around to West by sometime after Midnight or 1 AM.

Tropical Storm Kate update for Tuesday morning swell at 3 PM.  Kate has the perfect position for us, showing about 50-100 miles North of us for the Tuesday morning swell, and 300 plus miles due East.  As you know, when a hurricane or tropical storm is passing by parallel to our coast, the winds turn offshore for us when it has passed us by around 100 miles + or – North of us.

So this is why the winds should be blowing offshore all day, unlike Florida’s normal teaser wind charts 🙂  Here’s the storm as of 1 PM reading at Weatherunderground for the 11/09/2015 reading.  And don’t forget, we have 4 animated weather radar and hurricane tracking charts on Johnson Avenue Surfers.  Once the storm gets within a few hundred miles of us; the page on our site is a drop down menu link under the “Radar-wind-surfbreaks” called “Hurricane Tracking …” and that link to our 4 storm tracking charts on Johnson Avenue Surfers is here: https://j-avenue-surfers.com/radar-wind-surfbreaks/radar-satellite-for-storm-tracking-from-merritt-island-florida-serving-the-entire-east-coast-and-brevard-county/

Do you remember the “Hercules Swell” last year? Did you miss the Belharra, France, 50-70 foot face surf video from last year?  Incredible, perfect and massive 🙂  Video below:

This wind swell has a pretty wide Fetch, and as of last night at 10 PM, the 120 went from 4.3 feet at 9 seconds to 6 feet at 11 seconds by 4 am this morning.  So this baby is part ground swell.

It is looking chest to head high on Tuesday !  Winds look offshore straight west (3-5 mph at daybreak) for the most part from daybreak until at least early afternoon.  The tide ain’t so hot at daybreak, so it looks like it might be safe to stall your paddle out time a bit, to let the tide start it’s high to mid-low time at around around 9:30 (high is 6:37 am for Satellite Beach)

On Wednesday and maybe Thursday, the swell drops in size quite a bit, but should provide some thigh to waist high fun at the right tides and if you choose your wind time wisely 🙂

I’ll share more later to confirm wind for Tuesday morning.

Surf video of TS Ida at the Pier, plus, Sunday morning 11/08, could be clean, waist to chest, maybe glassy and fun, but early early … Posted Saturday afternoon, 11/07/2015 at 5:20 PM


Surf video of TS/Hurricane Ida at the Cocoa Beach Pier, with Dennis of Core Surf and a couple others.  Beautiful leftovers of Ida 🙂

Nice little wind swell moving in for Sunday morning, with perhaps waist to chest high clean, and maybe, just maybe glassy for an hour or so near daybreak Sunday morning.  Satellite Beach is your best bet to get the size.  If it blows offshore, probably from daybreak , for an hour , then light SE to East winds in the 3-5 mph range, building in speed as the morning grows older 🙂  (hopefully it won’t be a scattered thundershower to throw the winds whacko)

We may have a chest high plus and glassy day between Monday and Wednesday, so watch the wind charts, or check back here.
