The swell for this weekend has been acting like a Black Friday shopper, not making up it’s mind, so is it going to deliver? I have the 2 charts below, Swell and then Period chart for Monday at 6 am (although, tuesday looks to be the best surf day), but the Monday Period chart, shows that it is a fairly organized swell, very close to a ground swell with a fetch that goes much wider than the map of the U.S.
The model has finally been holding for 2 days in a row now. It’s pretty strange to have a NE swell this time of year, let alone a NE swell with this steep of a North angle to it.
The Cape and the Pier will be blocked out quite a bit, but by Tuesday, we should all have something to ride, and I believe down South , in Satellite Beach, we can expect solid chest to head high waves, with winds which are hard to call yet, but probably slower than the charts say. For now, I’m calling 5-10 mph ENE winds, and pretty decent form. There is only one 2ndary swell behind the major swell, and it is aiming straight East, with less than a foot at 10 seconds, so it shouldn’t be doing anything funky to the form 🙂
