Will it be big, glassy, warm or cold air for Sunday’s incoming ground swell?  Check it out below !  ………and,  for the Old , well and for the Young, I share a Longboarders video I did the summer of 2014, with photos I brought in from others of Piers, Beachs, all over the US , for variety, and a bunch of talented longboarders surfing a nice rib to shoulder high day in Satellite Beach.  I hope you like the Beach Boys, cause they seemed appropriate for a Longboard and Beach Ladies video array!

 

Well, we’re 3 days out, but for Sunday it looks like rib to chest high with a nice chance of offshore winds for the Northern end of the county.  (Not Playalinda, but for the Cape and North Cocoa Beach.  Winds could be offshore till mid-morning.  It is a one day swell , but a 2ndary wind swell comes in right behind to bring size on Monday, but the chances of big chop on Monday are pretty good.  High tide is 5:20 AM for Satellite Beach, so by 7:30 a good portion of the deep water should be back in the faucet.  Air temp is only 60 low, and 74 for a high, and the weather shows “SUNNY” 03-03-16-clip-art-pictures-of-the-sun-100w for Sunday !

We’ll give a couple updates on the wind and swell, as Sunday comes closer.

Have a Great Thursday, and we hope to have a new Website for you by sometime in March , early April.

A killer outside set, beautiful set…


Friday is looking potentially Epic with a 3 foot at 12 second ground swell, which could produce chest high plus waves between the Cape and Satellite Beach. More below…

Friday could have stomach to chest high plus waves between the Cape and Satellite Beach with offshore winds up until noon.

Thursday afternoon should also have a strong chunk of the swell coming in late afternoon, also up to chest high, maybe South winds in the 10-15 mph range meaning Playalinda or Spanish House with offshore winds and a slight offshore effect in Satellite Beach.  This would be onshore winds North of Minuteman Causeway, so Thursday you may want to check out the South Streets or further south.

Saturday could have some thigh to waist high glassy leftovers 🙂

We have a very cool, unique group of Surfer friends in the neighborhood.  And I felt rather obsessed to share the still images and video that I have shot the last few years of as many of us as I could.

I apologize that 3 or 4 people, I was just not around, to get as much photos or video as I could, and in some of the photos, I was forced to shoot footage directly into the Sun, which can definitely degrade the photo or footage.  But with that said, I do hope y’all enjoy this, I tried to create in a way to bridge the Young and the Old 🙂

 

Thanks for the Opportunity,

THREE YEARS IN REVIEW VIDEO  of Johnson Avenue Surfers will be live on January 1st, 2014, yeah tomorrow 🙂

My apologies for not sharing any reports for the last couple of swells we have had;  as Y’all know, my main focus, is to share the Awesome Talent and Efforts, of those that surf from around the Neighborhood, by catching them on Camera or Video.  This may be at the end  of our street, the Jetty, the Cocoa Beach Pier, Satellite Beach and anywhere in between.

It’s taken me 70 or so hours to compile this baby, so that’s why I’ve been away from sharing any updates, and we all know that Surfline, Seaweed and Ross are there for that purpose anyhow 🙂

I will post the Video sometime New Years Day or tonight if I finish in time.  The Surfers present are Chad, Don, Dr. John, Sunny, Me (Oldwaverider), Chuck, Chris (Orlando), Joe (Boston), Lacey, Mike (my buddy from Lakeland), Dave (Sunny’s dad), Scooter, Ron, Tim C., Dennis (Core Surf),  and Paul (Jeremy’s kin and the Emu Bird Man).

I apologize if I missed anyone, and if I did, and you know I have footage of you, let me know, and I will update the final Video.  The Soundtrack part will be provided by Bob Marley, Guerilla Jazz of Hawaii (I hope) and perhaps one other artist.  I tried to use the Shins, but they have the U.S. blocked from using their copyright, so the tunes may have some change if YouTube lets me know.

Thanks for letting me capture the Great Times and Awesome Talent & People in sharing this compilation with You!

Happy New Year, and Be Safe 🙂

TUESDAY afternoon is shaping up to be the Gift for us All!  More down below, but for a Tuesday (03/12)  morning 8:10 AM update;  the winds will be lousy at the Cape only until about 3 PM.  (maybe a little before) Why?  South and SSW winds are onshore for us, until SSW becomes more SW.  But since the SSW winds are too strong, it will be sem-choppy anyhow until 2 or 3 PM, my bet is 4 PM.  Then we should see Waist to Chest high at the Cape,  and Chest to Head High Plus in Satellite Beach.  The best time to paddle out, is 4 PM to 5 PM.  Get off work, and enjoy 2 or so hours of big glassy waves, and enjoy Nature’s Happy Hour! (thus ends the Tuesday morning surf update, all below was created the other day )

The video, we created (no Tripod used, apologies)  with some Clips/Highlites from the Saturday portion of the Ron Jon’s Beach n Board Fest, Quiksilver Surf Contest, and more. NOTE: YOUTUBE DEFAULTS AT LOW REZ 360p, SO BE SURE TO CLICK THE 4 FROM RIGHT BOTTOM ICON, FOR HD 720p 🙂

Monday, looks to remain Chest high to over head at the Cape, and still 1 to 3 feet overhead in Satellite Beach, with 9 to 15 mph SE winds, starting low at daybreak and increasing to mid-afternoon.

Tuesday, Chest high plus at the Cape, and Head high to 2 feet overhead in Satellite Beach. Rain in the morning until noon with winds from the South in the 10 to 15 mph range, slowly switching to SSW until 2ish, and hopefully total OFFSHORE AND SW by 2 or 3 PM in the 10 to 12 mph range.  Then the winds start working there way to WSW until dark.  So from 2 PM until dark (which is now around 7:30 or so, yeah daylight savings 🙂

Wednesday and Thursday, still should have some sizeable leftovers, but the winds are looking to be in the 15 to 20 mph NNW range Wednesday morning.

I just had to add this Anderson Cooper, interview of Garrett McNamara, about his 100 foot wave ride on January 29, 2013.

Enjoy and pray for an Epic Tuesday afternoon to hold true!

SURFING VIDEO FROM JOHNSON AVENUE TODAY

Surf with waves every day for a Week, Chest to Head High, with a few glassy days.

Tuesday is looking to be chest to head high, clean with North winds light at day break, turning NNE by 8 AM so get out early.

Wednesday is showing chest to overhead, and Weather.com shows NNW light winds until 11 AM which means glass for the Cape and clean down South, the models at Magicseaweed.com show onshore Wednesday morning, so for now I go with Weather.com.

Thursday morning looks chest high plus, clean, maybe early glass

Friday looks like a chance of glass similar size

Saturday, looks like definite offshore winds and head high. (which means, we will have a big glassy epic day on Sat or Sun, unless the swell bumps up early)

We’ll update later tomorrow with a wind update.  I missed the glassy wind report for this morning, oops, my bad 😦

Thanks for your forgiveness 🙂

Incoming ground swell for Friday morning should be bringing in some Chest high plus waves.  Maybe not at the Cape, but the Pier or a couple miles South of the pier should see increased size the further South you go.  The swell angle is so steep, at 9 AM Friday, 49 °, and straight offshore is 90, so our launch pads may block out a lot of this swell, at least the first day. (see rest of update, below photos)

We should see chest to shoulder high ground swell type power surf with onshore winds most of the week thru Saturday, and Sunday and Monday, more of the same but less power and a wind swell, however;

Friday morning , the winds switch from NNW at daybreak, toNorth at 8 to 12 mph until around 10 AM, so we could have some semi-glassy waves, thigh to chest high in the morning, at least somewhere between the Cape and 4rth Street North.  South of Minuteman CSWY, North winds are onshore.

We do have a few waves coming, a windswell that may blow in Saturday, very low period swell, so it may be some waist to chest high chop, and Monday night, maybe a swell…more in a sec

It wasn’t quite breaking at Johnson Ave today (Friday 8/3/2012), and I wasn’t quite ready to start work, so I took a drive down to Satellite Beach, at about 1 to 2 hours after high tide, like 10:30 to 11:30 AM, and took some surf photos of some fun looking 1 to 2.678 foot waves, fairly glassy, only 2 or 3 or 4 people out.  And a few other miscellaneous photos, …

We may have a wind swell blow in Saturday sometime to bring us some waist to chest chop until maybe Sunday or so, but it is a low period wind chop, so hard to tell if it will be rideable or not.  But, it’s a shot at something, so get excited.

Monday night, we may have a 1 to 1.5 day small ground swell to hit for the evening and for Tuesday morning, in the waist to chest high range. Sunday night and Monday night we’ll update the winds to see if Tuesday looks like it could be a really fun day, or just a day 🙂

DR JOHN SURF AND A DAY AT THE BEACH ON JOHNSON AVENUE VIDEO

SUNDAY NIGHT UPDATE FOR MONDAY MORNING!!!

Still looks like glass, nice lines, however the size I will downgrade as of 10:00 PM tonight (Sunday).  I am calling thigh to waist high glass at the Cape, and waist to rib high down South, with 4 to 7 mph SSW winds.  So it should be glassy South of Minuteman causeway, and semi-glass North of it.  But………..the winds will probably turn SW for an hour or two, which means glass for everyone, but we will see.  If it stays light SSW, it will be fun everywhere. Either way,  have fun an enjoy the Summer Swell!

Dr. John I caught a few rides, one nice 10 second plus ride, but I confess, shooting into the sun and other things I have to learn yet 🙂

I did get a collage of people in the film, a Skate-Kite Boarder, Para-Sailing, Runners, a Bi-Plane and a little bit of everything.  The smooth jazz piece to go along with it, kept me within my legal boundaries for copyright complainers 🙂

The ground swell actually just started to hit the 120 mile buoy at 11 AM this morning, so it was definitely delayed by a good 6 hours maybe.  So the surf we saw this morning, even though it showed 3.5 feet at 9 seconds on Seaweed (the 20 mile buoy is down, so it’s real hard to tell),  but my guess is it was 2 foot at 8 seconds.

I do believe that we will have solid waist to rib lines at the Cape Monday morning, and chest high or better in Satellite BeachThe winds are showing South to SSW for daybreak until 11 ish, in the 4 to 6 mph range.  I suspect that they will turn SW for an hour or two, but don’t wait until 10 AM to paddle out. High tide will be going low which is perfect around 6:10 AM, so an 8 or 9 AM paddle out should be the best time.

Tuesday appears to have some size leftovers with a slight drop, probably thigh to chest, North to South, and also offshore winds.

Get it while it Rocks!

Hope you enjoy the video, I have a lot to learn 🙂
