Sunday still looks like waist to maybe chest high (probably down south only), with W winds in the 3-6 mph range until maybe 11 am then NNW to NE by Noon or so.  The swell drops thru the day, so the best plan, is to hit first light around 7 AM.  High tide is around 3:38 AM in Cocoa Beach and 3:53 AM in Satellite Beach.  High going low at 6:53 is a perfect mid-tide time to go.

Also, check out the video this Dad made, with his Baby’s first barrel surfing 🙂

Check out the full article on the baby surfer here.  John John Florence said his Mom took him out on her board when he was around 6 months old 🙂

Also, the 3rd Annual Beach and Boards Fest sponsored by Ron Jon Surf Shop is at Shepard Park, which means, much easier parking than other places. Check out the scoop on the Fest here.


Saturday Morning and Hurricane Gonzalo was so Epic at day break, when most of the Walls were peeling fast but makeable.  Saturday, October 18 2014 that is.  Not until 9:30 Am or so, did it be come more challenging to choose a wave 🙂  The video below is the second and probably last long one from Gonzalo.  I shot about 250 clips that day, 150 in Satellite and 100 at the Pier. (Note: the video is still uploading at YouTube and should be done by 1:30 PM or before)


Those of you that were there at our Awesome Rock Break in Satellite Beach, know who you are, and where this was shot.  Thanks for all your great surfing, and footage for me to devour!

And I would like to note, that the biggest wall/wave that came in, was caught by a young lady, and she made the most perfect drop (the wave was peeling fast, but perfect), and I may slow motion that clip by itself, to upload to Magicseaweed.com at the Satellite Beach location, where I have most of my photos and videos posted.

So I had to toss a couple barrels in here in kind of a slow motion (yeah I did take two from last video),  just to show the insides of the barrel, and this one guy with an excellent off the lip on an Epic wave in form and size.

There were quite a few 10 foot faces to show that morning, though the common sets were 6-8 foot faces.  The video is about 4 minutes long, and I did it in 1080P, cause the 720P version annoyed me, LOL 🙂

I hope you enjoy.  AND THANK YOU YOU TUBE FOR PERMITTING ME TO UPLOAD 1080p VIDEO!

Oh, and we do have 3 -5 days of big chop surf coming by Sunday night, Monday morning.

And there is a Surf contest at Spessard Holland Park in Melbourne Beach for Groms, by Gnarly Charlie!.  Details are here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1483099941961312/

Have a Great Hump Day folks, and let me know what you think of video!
