Lacey Gallery 1st ten photos.  Today was a beautiful day at J-Ave!  The waves were Chest high, some smaller, some bigger, with unexpected offshore winds past 8 AM, and unexpected sunshine.  The next swell moving in was supposed to throw 20 mph NE winds by 8 or 9 AM, but our Awesome Creator (God 🙂  gave us an extended window of the whole neighborhood out in the water at some time or another.  And our typical Boardwalk Commentators put in a little overtime, just to make sure everything went well, and so that all of those participants that shredded at least one wave, were commended at least once 🙂

The first sequence is of Lacey (if misspelled i change it in the title later:) ), which which was done in 2 part, because as she dropped into one of the waves of the day, I was shooting right into the Sun,  the camera had to time-out for 2 seconds after 6 shots, and then I

managed to pull 3 or 4 more shots on the same ride, but out of direct sun, and as she was getting closer to shore.  It ended up being like 10 shots from the same wave, and if you look at the longboard on the sand, and how it re-positioned with the guy next to it,  the span of her ride had to be close to 100 yards give or take.  Just an awesome ride by Lacey, her style of takeoff, form and grace on that one!

The next sequence is of Chad, on another of the bombs of the day, and trying to maintain a stance of modesty from his growing talent, he kept his re-entries in this chest to head high wave slightly conservative, so as not to frustrate others who are still learning to Surf 🙂

Sunday Surf; expect big overhead chop with 15 to 25 mph winds from the East.  Probably head high plus at the Cape and 2 to 3 foot overhead down South in Satellite Beach.

I hope y’all enjoy the photos, and I apologize that I had to have the zoom out so much, but I literally could not see anything thru the viewfinder because the sun was so bright, so the best way to even get 4 or 5 pics in a sequence, is to have the zoom way out so you don’t have to move the camera too much.

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.
