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 🙂

You all may remember a guy that used to surf with us before he got a dog and broke some bones 🙂  Well, his name is Mike and he’s back !

 

Dammit!  I hope I'll be able to see Mike catch a wave, from down here.  His dog was tellin me he's surfin again now that his dog is house trained :)

These shots are from the great ENE swell that hit us on Wednesday for the chest to overhead glassy day, February 22nd. It was closing out pretty quick out back here on Johnson, but there were still some nice rib to chest high waves with even a bigger set rolling thru.

These shots are a sequence of Mike, who by the quality advice of the boardwalk advisement group,  were taken of Mike while surfing Dr. John’s squatters rights South Surf break at Johnson.  But since the Dr. was not in,  Mike took the long ride for the day, perhaps.  At least for while I was standing there feigning the work of photo taking.

Surf Report; we have a weak, no fetch to speak of wind swell coming in probably Sunday afternoon late almost direct North with a hint of East.   Down South may see something late Saturday,  chop slop North wind stuff, but the Cape is totally blocked out of this one until maybe

Yeah baby, I got another turn on here before you close the door.  Image 3 of 7 sequence.  Rip Van Mike

Sunday afternoon late.  And then some onshore chop thru maybe the week, with a chance of Thursday or Friday of the offshore winds for a few hours.  The part for Tuesday thru Thursday comes in Tuesday, piggy-backing the former N swell, and as far as the Tuesday part 2,  it comes mostly from the East, so everyone should get a piece of that.

It ain’t gonna be pretty, but it will be some head high waves probably somewhere along our Cape to Satellite corridor 🙂

Once we start to see part 2 coming in Tuesday, we’ll start tracking the offshore winds day.

Hope you enjoy the pics of Rip Van Mike.  His style was great for being asleep that long 🙂

Fluid as ever.  It's probably the new beard :)  Image 5 of 7 sequence.

He may not admit it, but this must be a satisfaction and a thank your creator for this great stuff, meditative moment.
