Can we expect some fun glassy surf tomorrow, on Tuesday?
Tuesday morning, We should have some chest high glassy wind swell out there, that ought make the chilly water worthwhile 🙂 Winds should be offshore till at least early afternoon, and at daybreak, SW winds, brisk, in the 10-12 mph range, low tide around 8:30 am.
Check out the video clip from last Monday, a nice 14 second rib to chest high left (excuse, I couldn’t. Every 20 minutes, a head high set would come through which actually had more juice and held up better, but only the longboarders were taking advantage of them. Why? The shortboarders would have fallen asleep waiting 🙂
Tuesday , Tropical Storm Kate took a few hours after daybreak to get nice and perhaps awesome. For those who were patient, here’s a surfing video I shot of friends and others:
Lots of Waves coming! Big chop, but the ground swell in a week will provide some glass 🙂
Was it Huge and Epic today or what? CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO OF A DOUBLE (well almost double) OVERHEAD DROP, with the face size dropping quickly to 8 or 9 foot face, but still an awesome wave and ride in Satellite Beach today.
Satellite Beach was perfect walls/lines coming in, with minimal closeouts, and wave faces in the 8 to 12 foot range, yeah that’s right , the biggest sets had 12 foot faces! I may have gotten a 10 or 11 foot face on video, but since the huge sets were infrequent, none of the 12 surfers out, wanted to wait out there. BUT IT WAS PERFECT FORM!
I confess, I have been less than in top shape, so after my 7-10 foot face epic session in Satellite Beach the day before, I decided to surf the end of my street, where it was only 5 to 8 foot faces 🙂
Thursday morning should be some 7-9 foot faces with maybe a few 10’s left over with glass 🙂
Friday, should should be head high to overhead, and possible glass for North Cocoa Beach and the Cape.
Saturday, has the new storm coming in to piggy back Ida, and right now, is look to be 10-12 foot faces or bigger in Satellite Beach, with very strong offshore winds.
We’ll update y’all on Thursday!
When we first got to RC’s North at 7:15-7:30, the lines were epic! I had to earnestly look for a closeout. After my 2 hours, yes, the closeouts began. When I started to shoot footage; but there were still plenty of Waves holding up still from 10 – 12 PM!
(NOTE: To see the best quality, click two of the lower right YouTube icons on the controls. Click the gear and choose at least 720P or if u have great bandwidth go for 1080P. Also choose the “Full Screen” icon on the far right, and then start the video over so the quality kicks in. YouTube defaults at 360P and I can’t blame them! Turn your volume up too for the Music)
The crowds were nill, yeah, the paddle out and the sets looked intimidating (for Florida, LOL), but when you see perfect 6-9 foot faces , with a 10 foot face thrown in every 15 minutes or so, heading back North to Cocoa Beach and the Cape did not seem like an option 🙂
Today, we have waist to chest high plus with winds SW at 2nd light wind monitor at the base, and that was around 6 at 8:30 AM, which already changed from WNW. Get out while you can!
Great Hurricane; though I do hope and pray Bermuda came out okay …
Satellite Beach Surfing Video, shot a week , from last tuesday, 03/25, There were a few shortboarders that were a total pleasure to watch, with sweet carving, 360 floaters, and a longboarder that thought he was on a shortboard. Hope you enjoy the short video.
Today Saturday, 04/05/2014, the waves kicked in for an hour, around 10 to 11 AM, and I got my 80-100 yard waist high wall to put a smile on my face; and a few really fun rail grabber lefts 🙂
