Incoming wind swell, probably will hang on for 3 or 4 days, with 4 to 6 foot face heights, depending a North or South break. More on the swell in a minute and down below…

This photo was taken by Stu and Malia Johnson, where they are Professional Photographers in Fiji,  right by the famous break of “Cloudbreak”.  Their website for a great variety of their work is here.   (Yeah, I added the poem enhancement because it is one of the best pictures of a wave I have ever seen)

A friend posted the poem below to help stop violence in schools.  For my Christian and Atheist friends and those in the middle,  it certainly is food for thought when all the Public Schools had the “Neon Sign” reminder if you will removed from Public;  (Christian Prayer in Schools, 10 Commandments taken from Courthouses and the Pledge of Allegiance diminshed )   Without a constant reminder,  kids don’t have that deep down message that can get thru with them 🙂

I placed this in here because , well this is a blog 🙂  , and also because I see it’s wonderful power…

Mary had a little lamb his fleece was white as snow and every where that Mary went the lamb was sure to go. He followed her to school one day, it was against the rules. He made the children laugh and play to see a lamb at school. And then the rules all changed one day, illegal it became; to bring…. the Lamb of God to school or even say his name. Everyday got worse and worse, and days turned into years. Instead of hearing children laugh we heard gun shots and tears. What must we do to stop the crime thats in our schools today? Let the Lamb come back to school and teach our kids to PRAY!!!!

Back to Incoming Surf…

The swell starts rolling in Monday morning really steep from the NE.  But by Tuesday, the angle turns from the East, on thru Thursday at least.  We should see 4 to 6 foot faces depending on a North break or a South break.  (obviously , the closer to Satellite Beach the bigger 🙂  Mostly medium East winds (probably 10 to 15 mph)  until Thursday or Friday.

Possible offshore day on Thursday or Friday.  We’ll keep ya posted.

The first size of the swell was Thursday, and We were fortunate enough to catch the dawn patrol session (close to dawn:) , South of 2nd light.  It was wait wait wait, until 7:40 ish, and then some chest high glass or semi-glass with plenty of power.

Winds were offshore for awhile, lefts and rights were working.  Four of us in the water only, what a great session!

For Sunday;  the 120 buoy has been pushing 5.5 to 6.5 feet at around 10 seconds now for about 24 hours, ESE winds bringing it in,  so I believe we’ll seem some shoulder high waves down south, and some chest high sets at the Pier and Shephard Park.

If you can catch it, 1 hour after full high tide, and any time for 3 or 4 hours after that, even with the on shore winds at 10 to 15 mph plus,  you’ll catch some long workable left or right shoulders.

We should have waves for the next few days, no offshore winds in sight,  but like I said, catching it high going low, will give you an easy paddle out, and clean shoulders with totally workable walls.

Enjoy the last day of the Easter Surf Fest, lots of good food, great scenery, bonding and all that stuff.

I hope you can catch an Easter Sunrise Service,  our Pastor Greg Le Sieur from Christ Lutheran Church will be at the Shephard Park Sunrise Service starting around 6:45 Am.

Hope to see ya out there!   HAPPY EASTER!

Okay, we do appear to be having a week coming up of small ‘potential’ ground swell surf

The incoming “windswell”  coming in late today, which we hope will become ground swell as it continues to roll in Friday may provide us some waist to chest high waves , sometime late Thursday, with offshore winds Saturday morning and possible offshore winds Sunday morning.

By Thursday nite,  I should have a more accurate reading of the winds for Saturday morning, along with how strong the swell is out by the 120 mile buoy.

At least we should have some ridable waves for a number of days,  when you catch it during the right tides.

I did catch some ridable wind swell semi-glass Tuesday afternoon here at The Cape,  right after the thunderstorms passed over,  knee to thigh high,  but more power than I would have expected for a 5 to 6 second period wind swell.

Follow us closely in the next couple days and we hope to have a positive report of what’s to come.  The moving period chart is here, if you would like to see the animation of the chart at magicseaweed.com.

Until then, have a great mid-week Wednesday,  and if you want an hour of peace and forgiveness, check out Christ Lutheran Church tonight at 7 Pm to here about the last 7 words of Jesus Christ as he was dying on the cross.

Shalom 🙂

Man, someone sent me this link on Facebook, and it’s amazing what a softy you find out you are when you see this.

It reminds me of  “Born Free”,  I don’t know if it’s the same people, but definitely a 2 minute video worth watching.

I apologize that it’s only 240 P resolution, but whatever 🙂
