Best Video of Garretts epic Wave! Thursday evening August 01 , 9:30 PM Surf Update , Surf Report ,Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach – July 30, 2013 posted


Wednesday afternoon, the swell delayed by probably 5 hours finally came in with 5 to 7 foot faces in Satellite, though the winds did pick up a bit in the late afternoon, but I’m sure it was a lot of fun. We did a late 4 PM session at J-Ave, but it was pretty much totally unrideable.  I was kooking severely, but the form was all messed up with sections coming at different angles onto the face of each wave, so only a few percentage of waves, really had a line up here.  My neighbor and a couple of short boarders, go the best results from it.  It was not a good session for longboards, and especially, for a guy kooking at his worst.  But, my morning session in waist to occ chest high waves in Satellite Beach, very clean, was a blast, and the kook was not out then 🙂

This is the best video I have seen of Garrett Mac’s, massive record wave.  Very clean, fairly close up footage by the videographer, and it appears some go pro footage was in there too.

Friday, should have some knee to thigh high leftovers, with maybe some waist high sets in Satellite Beach.  Should be semi to glass early morning.

MORE CHOP W SOME SIZE FOR TODAY AND SATURDAY in the waist to shoulder high face range down South in Satellite, and smaller at the Cape and Pier with 15 to 20 mph onshore winds.  Sunday could have clean light onshore winds, in the 5 to 8 mph range, with waist high plus waves.

Thursday surf at the Pier, around 6 :30 PM last night was rib to chest maybe, but very fun drops.  If u waited, which I did , some long (longboard rides were to be had).  A brutal paddle out for shore.  Had to walk 1/4 mile south of the Pier (longboard), in order to get out, before the south to north current had me on top of the pier.  But it was worth it.  Had to wait 15 or 20 minutes for a wave, which they were only breaking when I drifted to the Pier (behind it), caught 2 fun waves and headed in.

There were two other guys out, a shortboarder getting plenty of rides, another guy who I couldn’t see much, and myself, picky and waiting for the wave that was worth the paddle back out on a 10.0 foot board 🙂

The video below, is some nice footage of clips of a Surf contest in Iceland, where the water temp was 2° Fahrenheit, Ouch!  But the guys shredded, and made it look like warm water reflexes 🙂

Wednesday, we have a little more surf coming in perhaps, a little 2 to 3 foot wind swell.  Today looks to be some knee high glass at the Pier for the right tide.

Surf Thursday AM was Excellente! , this is Thursday morning (April 25) 11:30 AM Surf Update from Thursday Am surf, Surf Report ,Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach (April 25, 2013 posted)


EXCELLENT SURF IN SATELLITE BEACH TODAY  🙂

Weather.com held consistent, as it is usually on for me, if I do a Melbourne Beach, Satellite Beach, Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral check so I can see the trend from South to North. It must be a high pressure causing the friendly wind conditions this week, for a lot of Wind Swell with size rolling in, I haven’t looked.  More about today, and later in the week below…

This is part six of a Video series, featuring mainly Kohl Christensen.  The one I posted 3 or 4 posts back, was the 40 foot plus faces in Mullaghmore Head, Ireland in 40 ° water , Ouch!, that Danilo Couto and a few others did a great tow-in session, and a few nominations for the Ride of The Year Entry for Billabong XXL 2013.  The video below, is some epic Mexican Pipeline Escondido, with Kohl, Greg Long and some massive 30 to 40 foot plus face waves and all paddle in, NO TOW!  Escondido, is one of the least User-Friendly beach breaks for big waves, but , they all managed to make the session look totally worthwhile and surviveable 🙂

Today, Thursday morning, It was solid rib to chest high, glassy, lefts were quite hollow, though when I paddled out today around 7:40 AM, it was 45 minutes before high tide, so it was a little tough to grab a wave, but when 30 minutes passed, that’s when the left’s did their thing, and the rights had just perfect , long workable walls.  Many 100 plus yard rides to be had.  That’s what always put’s a smile on my face.  Of course , only 3 other people out, well that also keeps one in high spirits.  One after another, even a little cover from a couple vertical left, rail grabber drop-ins 🙂

We should have waves all week, in the rib to head high range, the bigger stuff coming closer to tuesday.  Offshore winds, well can’t tell yet, but when we see the “Window”, we will pass it on to ya.

Have a great Thursday, and I hope you enjoy the Video 🙂

Mavericks in Half Moon Bay CA – Big Wave Surfing of “Riding Giants” awesome Video , Surf Report ,Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach (March 22, 2013 posted)


There should be something rideable between Saturday and Sunday, but not enough to give a report.  So instead…

I share this Phenomenal Video of Mavericks in 2009, a “Reality” type of video, which shows up close, the brutality of Going over the Falls at Mavericks, California.  What happens, if you don’t make the paddle out, outside, and much more.  Amazing, up close footage 🙂

Carving n Cruisin at The Pier , a Video from the Pier on Thursday March 14 around 10 AM, Friday morning, with some thigh to chest high leftovers, (Friday morning update 8 to 10 AM) , Surf Report Update…Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach (March 15, 2013 posted)


SURF UPDATE , thigh high and glassy at the Pier this morning, and bigger down South, and

Saturday should be Long Board fun and glassy in the AM, thigh to waist high plus down South, and perhaps knee high plus at the Cape, smaller than today, but still fun. It is still holding strong in the 2.5 feet at 13 or 14 seconds at our near shore buoy as of 10:30 PM Friday night (now), and at the Fort Pierce Buoy, still around 4 feet at 14 seconds, so we still have a nice ground swell hanging on.  The 120 buoy has been out since the 11th, but I failed to see that the last few days, so I guess my medication is working 🙂

Maybe Sunday. Smaller, but fun as this 10 day piggyback swell subsides 🙂

Carvin’ and Cruisin’ at the Pier Surf Video, as we enjoy learning the world of motion graphics, at Walk On Water Productions.  With some awesome talent at the Pier, some of our Gifted Longboarders, and some shortboarders workin on their Aerials…hope you enjoy!  I accompanied the video with a Jason Mraz tune, that seemed to flow with the mellow crowd yesterday morning.

Have a Great Weekend!

Tuesday afternoon is the target day ! (Sunday night update 9:30 PM) Quiksilver Surf contest highlites video , clips and more from the Ron Jon Beach ‘N Boards Fest from Saturday created by Walk on Water Productions, plus, Garrett McNamara interview by CNN from his approximate 100 foot wave ride, Surf Report Update…Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach (March 10, 2013 posted)


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!

February 10 update, plus Hurricane Sandy from big Sunday in Satellite Beach and Pure Ocean TV 2012 Photo review of Awesome Nature, Surf Report Update for Friday February 08 2013, Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach (February 08, 2013 posted)


Monday morning, South winds, and chest high and semi-glassy down south.  The Cape, with South winds, will be sideshore and half the size.  Tuesday, will be waist high down south and glassy, and thigh high maybe at the Cape and semi glassy . 

Everything below, re surf report was done Friday night, the above was a Sunday night 10:30 PM update.

Wind swell with a little size coming in Saturday night.  Today we had some knee to maybe thigh glass down south.  Sunday, it will be low period 6 or 7 second, meaning no long line, strong onshores, but it will be something to drop in on. Could see some waist to rib  high at the Cape and shoulder high down south. Monday , more of the same, and Tuesday, a chance of morning glass, if you go down south.  Water temp is 69, so it’s skinnable, if you have scales 🙂

Hurricane Sandy was rolling in 10 to 14 foot plus face sets Sunday morning, in Satellite Beach.  I shot this footage (apologies, but this was the first long distance footage, I have shot, and shooting into mostly the sun 😦  )   Anyhow, I hope you enjoy it! Oldwaverider

Pure Ocean TV, who provided a couple of videos I’ve posted here, one, the awesome 10 to 14 foot face waves video of “Frankenstorm”, Hurricane Sandy;  well they provided this awesome still image video clip of photos that they took over 2012.

It is some really nice, really nice nature shots, and some great music to go along with it.  If you like it, make sure and like it.  They do awesome work!

Video of a 10 to 12 foot overhead barrell from South Beach, Miami and Hurricane Sandy, posted November 26 2012


A sick 15 second video of a 10 to 12 foot overhead tow-in barrel from Hurricane Sandy.  (he never dropped to the bottom third of the wave so it may be bigger 🙂

He actually gets barreled twice.

Chad’s epic 200 yard, 18 second, 1 to 2 foot overhead drop ride, Saturday November 24 2012, Satellite Beach, Saturday afternoon Surf Report Update 11/24/12 4:15 PM, Surf forecast for Cape Canaveral , Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach (November 24, 2012 posted)


CHAD’s 18 SECOND RIDE,  SURFING VIDEO, 1 TO 2 FOOT OVERHEAD FACE…(Be sure to click “Full Screen” below on You Tube settings and also click 720 HD on quality)

We caught a spectacular, session with Shoulder to 2 foot plus overhead faces in Satellite Beach or Hangers.

I got some amazing rides by brother Chad, but this 2 foot overhead face, provided Chad an 18 second, 200 yard ride of perfection 🙂

This was the perfect, session, with waves that had power that kept your drop-ins, high, but wipeouts without headaches, go figure ,

Surf for Sunday should be waist high at the Cape, and Chest high in Satellite Beach, with 4 to 6 mph NW winds until 10 AMish, and then they go NNW around 6 until 1 or 2, maybe later.

Monday should also have some small but fun leftovers.
