RIP VAN MIKE – PHOTO GALLERY
DON’T FORGET, IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE 1200 PIXEL WIDE PHOTO, CLICK ON THE PHOTOS BELOW ONCE, AND THEN AGAIN (IT’S A WINDOWS THING FOR THE 2ND CLICK 🙂
You all may remember a guy that used to surf with us before he got a dog and broke some bones 🙂 Well, his name is Mike and he’s back !
These shots are from the great ENE swell that hit us on Wednesday for the chest to overhead glassy day, February 22nd. It was closing out pretty quick out back here on Johnson, but there were still some nice rib to chest high waves with even a bigger set rolling thru.
These shots are a sequence of Mike, who by the quality advice of the boardwalk advisement group, were taken of Mike while surfing Dr. John’s squatters rights South Surf break at Johnson. But since the Dr. was not in, Mike took the long ride for the day, perhaps. At least for while I was standing there feigning the work of photo taking.
Surf Report; we have a weak, no fetch to speak of wind swell coming in probably Sunday afternoon late almost direct North with a hint of East. Down South may see something late Saturday, chop slop North wind stuff, but the Cape is totally blocked out of this one until maybe
Sunday afternoon late. And then some onshore chop thru maybe the week, with a chance of Thursday or Friday of the offshore winds for a few hours. The part for Tuesday thru Thursday comes in Tuesday, piggy-backing the former N swell, and as far as the Tuesday part 2, it comes mostly from the East, so everyone should get a piece of that.
It ain’t gonna be pretty, but it will be some head high waves probably somewhere along our Cape to Satellite corridor 🙂
Once we start to see part 2 coming in Tuesday, we’ll start tracking the offshore winds day.
Hope you enjoy the pics of Rip Van Mike. His style was great for being asleep that long 🙂
Have a great weekend.
