CHAD PHOTO GALLERY
Sunday, September 9 2012 was a spectacular Surf Day! Hurricane Leslie gave us great surf for 5 or 6 days I believe. Yeah, Saturday was the huge glassy day in Satellite Beach with some 10 foot face sets, see the photos here from my buddy Mike Melito, but the best day (which I missed cause I was out of town, ouch), but the day for 30 to 50 rides per person (or more), was Sunday. It was closing out, and poor form Sunday up until 2 or 3 PM, and then conditions changed big time! RC’s was shut down, but at 3 PM, I was at Officer’s Club watching with my buddy Mike Melito, and within 30 minutes, the form cleaned up, the winds got perfect, 3 guys were out, so Mike and I paddled out at O’Club, with some awesome head high waves and and occassional 1 to 2 foot overhead cleanup set. I surfed 2 hours at O’club, easy paddle out, no hair wet, but it was slamming hard if you got caught inside. I caught at least 3 each 150 yard rides at O’Club.
But then I suggested, he let’s check out Johnson Ave, and see if we have less slamming, and more waves for the taking. So we went North, and it was one of those Classic Johnson Avenue days. It was perfect in form, yeah a foot or two smaller on the face, but the left’s and rights were so User-friendly, the whole neighborhood was out, so we surfed another 1 1/2 hours, and then I came in to take some pictures.
This sequence is of brother Chad, a 6-shot sequence, taken about 5:30 PM or 6 PM, my settings on the camera were a little off, but you can still see what an epic session Chad had. He was definitely one of the stand-outs making this epic Hurricane Leslie Johnson Avenue Sunday night session, look easy 🙂
Okay, upcoming surf, REMINDER, with my crazy schedule, I am only posting surf reports when we have a solid ground swell in the making. So that’s why the infrequent reports.
But we do have a solid long period swell that will start to hit our beaches tonight (Saturday night), and should see some thigh high glass or semi-glass for Sunday morning at the Cape here. Maybe some waist high stuff, and by later in the day, chest high at the Cape, and some Chest high in Satellite Beach. Winds look to be offshore up until maybe 11 AM with mostly a NW wind (4 to 8 mph) turning North by 11, which still would be offshore if you stay at Lori Wilson or North of it.
Monday morning, if you surf North, Lori Wilson or the Pier, should have some chest high plus sets with semi-glass until 9 or 10 AM. The winds should be 5 to 10 mph out of the North, so it could be fairly big and semi-glassy.
This ground swell should be with us thru Tuesday, and then we should still have a solid 3 to 4 foot wind swell with us thru Friday at least.
Make sure and get in the water early Sunday to get the perfect glass and at low tide.
Have a great weekend!
