Incoming NE ‘ster windswell for maybe Monday thru Wednesday…I’ll get into that in a minute;

The photos here of Sunny were from a May 14 2011 ground swell that kicked up waist to shoulder high waves, perfect glass and barrels.  These three shots were taken by Chad , and of Sunny on a nice left.

As far as incoming swell, other than the 2 foot fairly consistent knee to thigh high stuff we have had for the last week, we do have a Nor’easter that is predicted to blow from land to sea at a NW angle,  so it looks like it will give us a steep NE windswell for perhaps Monday thru Wednesday.

There could be some head high faces, but mostly onshore winds, and by Tuesday afternoon, the models show the swell coming in more East than North which could allow some of this baby to hit the Cape, instead of letting Satellite Beach hog the whole show 🙂

As it progresses, we’ll let ya know.

Enjoy this awesome weather that the last two winters denied us.  Oh,  the water temp is the same at the Trident pier which hugs close to the barrier islands  just west of  the one mile buoy both showing showing 69 ° which you gotta love.

It’s hump day Wednesday, enjoy the remainder of your week and the weekend 🙂  A week from Friday is the Cape’s Friday Fest, so don’t forget about that street party!

The photos are of Sunny taken by Chad , I think.

This was Saturday morning May 14, 2011 in South Cocoa Beach.

Chad, Sunny, Jim  and Sunny Dave caught a great sesh from a 3 or 4 day swell, nice glassy, yeah some closeouts, but definitely some great waves.

A 3 shot sequence of Sunny, followed by a couple of miscellaneous waves.

By the way, Sunny does do rights also 🙂

Oh, guess we don’t want to leave out the incoming Memorial Day weekend wind swell for Sunday thru maybe Wednesday.

Hey, we’re not even supposed to have waves this time of year, so get pumped that we’re at least getting some wind chop waves.

Maybe, we’ll see some shoulder high sets down south, but I figure we ought to see a day or two of waist high plus at the Cape since the wind swell is direct east.

Right now, I’m not seeing a window of off shore winds, but when we get to that 3 hour window, we’ll let ya know.

Enjoy the pics, and the waves late Sunday afternoon over Memorial Day weekend.
