Monday should be overhead glass down South, and the Cape and CCB are very hard to predict.  This swell today was 41 degrees, so the Cape was blocked out from half the swell, and Monday, the angle goes 38 degrees with the falling swell, so I will go with, waist to chest high at the Cape, maybe shoulder high at the Pier.  The winds should be around 15 to 20 mph WNW at daybreak and kick up to 25 mph by noon, so get out early. Satellite Beach ought to see some 2 foot overhead sets.

Awesome waves everywhere today, Epic surf for J-Ave,  this afternoon for me was amazing fun with nothing but sick long rides from chest to head high, and Chilly!  (with only a rash guard, though some crazies were skinning it)

Satellite Beach was the most perfect I have seen it in size and form.  High tide this morning, was solid 9 to 12 foot with 14 foot sets, I got 2 video clips of rides, one was double overhead, and doubled on the guys head, but I’ll share that another day.

At low tide Satellite was slamming around noon,  solid 8 to 12 foot faces, with 14 foot plus sets, showing up every now and then, so I had to go out for just one wave, since it was the biggest and cleanest I have ever seen by RC’s and Hightowers.  A-frames, in the morning with 200 yard ride shoulders,  and at low tide, just as clean, but with a lot more closeouts.  But I got my one wave 🙂

The photos are of a guy on a double overhead wave (thought he’s hanging at the top but you can see his own body height under him and a spare 2 feet up top, so maybe more than 12 foot face), and the other is just an insane wall towering over 3 guys.

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!
