(That’s the kind of music that should be in a surf video, as opposed to rap 😉

Okay, you know my obsession with huge wave video…This was the contest that Kelly Slater won (as I mentioned in a post a week ago), where Kelly skipped the J-Bay ASP event to catch the Epic 30 foot plus Fiji surf back in July at Cloudbreak, which gave him the warmup that he wanted or needed to explode at Teahupoo Billabong Pro. Some of the waves in this video have 20 foot plus overhead barrels, and some brutal looking wipeouts. Okay, my digression is over, back to Maria photos and incoming surf…
We have our incoming windswell Nor’easter rolling in, it just hit at 11 AM, 4.5 ft at 9 seconds at the 120 buoy and the 20 mile is showing 3.5 feet at 10 seconds, so we should be seeing some waist high choppy waves at the Cape and some chest high chop down South. It appears that this wind swell is gonna hang for the next 3 to 5 days, around the same size, and with onshore winds. At least we’ll have something rideable, though I’m just gonna let my wounds heal from the last two hurricanes/tropicals 🙂
The photos are from Slater Lane/4rth street North on Thursday (9/15/2011) taken by myself of my old surf buddy from Lakeland Mike. The first set is a sequence of 5 shots of a nice shoulder high right. The next is a shoulder high left of 3 shots. Really fun, epic day!
I’ll be posting more photos from the Cape and the neighborhood, and some more photos from Katia down at O’ Club, in the next week.
