Video of Chad and Luke surfing a semi-epic chest high plus swell in Satellite Beach on July 16,2012, Monday night 9 PM surf report update, Surf Forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach (July 17, 2012 posted)


We had to drive South after checking out the end of the street.  I mean, come on, how often do we get a solid chest high plus ground swell in the summer in Florida?  🙂 , Don’t get me wrong, J-Ave looked fun, but if we were gonna film a ground swell we might as well film it a couple feet bigger on the face so………………………we headed down to Satellite Beach to my favorite break, we did paddle out late 😦


But we pulled up at 8:45 AM, offshore SW winds 5 mph, a ground swell rated at 3.5 feet at 10 seconds, and we could see plenty of chest high waves (shoulders) with quite a few shoulder high sets.

It was time for a double take,  what!!!!!!,  NO ONE OUT!  So what does any normal person do, they hurry out before the winds change.  What a great session, yeah 90% closeouts, so that just meant, you let 8 waves pass you by, and take one close-out for the insane bottom turn and kick-out, and hope the next one will give ya a 100 yard ride or more.  But, I confess, there was only a couple of those which is rare under these conditions, but the plentiful 50 to 75 yard plus rides with quick walls made for a great session and day.  I only surfed one hour, and then came in to start filming, by then the winds switched out of the South, but still had really clean semi-glass conditions.

Surf Update……….We should have some knee to waist high waves for then next few days Wed thru Friday maybe, with an offshore breeze for a couple hours.  This Low Pressure system is kind enough to linger so enjoy it while it lasts 🙂

Hope you enjoy the video, and the surfing  by Chad and Luke.
