The last day of Emily was Sunday (4 great days, nothing huge but a few head high sets on the drop), and it was a great day in Satellite at RC’s and Hightowers !  I surfed the morning which was stomach high and perfect glass, but it kicked up to chest high as the tide brought in more water.

If you surfed Emily in Cocoa Beach or the Cape, you probably missed the best size because of the angle of the swell.  Also, when the winds were mostly SSW, the only place to surf that is South of Minuteman Causeway, and for the size south of the Streets from 2nd light or maybe O Club and South.  Great surf, 4 days of it!

This is the official Chasing Monsters trailer video.  The link to the 2010 Pico Alto contest is below at the Chasing Monsters website.  As shown today on Magicseaweed.com the Pico Alto in Peru is on.  Quote “the world’s top big wave crazies will compete at the Billabong Pico Alto 2011– Copa Burn”.  If you want to see last year’s video on the Pico Alto 2010, check out the video at the ChasingMonsters.com website, and as of today it is the 4rth video to scroll down to.

Waves coming, maybe ! Upcoming low pressure system swell headed our way!  The models show that it hits Wednesday and keeps rolling for 3 plus days.  Don’t know when we will half offshore winds, nor am I 100% sure the swell will hit, but the models show a nice SE swell in the 3 to 4 foot range with a high period of 11 or 12 seconds, so it’s definitely ground swell.
