Tuesday Night Surf Update below following this awesome video, By the way, check out the Swell Period chart I added below for Friday morning at 6 AM. Very powerful, very uniform period, and you can see the fetch (width of distance wind travels over water to create swell) of the swell is as wide as the U.S. almost..……………….This is a video covering the two big massive Paddle In Sessions at JAWS/PEAHI, from January 4rth and then January 30th, 2012, Yes, this year. THIS VIDEO IS SO INSANE! GREAT DROPINS, WIPEOUTS THAT LOOK LIKE DEATH. You will be amazed at Jeff Rowley and his wipeouts, and perfect ride of the year.
Many of the big name Surfers are in this including a not so big name, Dave Wassell who may have the respect of the biggest wave paddled into EVER!. Possibly 60 foot face paddle in. Also Albee Layer, Shane Dorian, Greg Long and a host of others, including some names we may not be familiar with. Jeff Rowley paddled into a 50 to maybe 55 foot face and is nominated for The Ride of the Year nominee for the 2012 Billabong XXL Awards.
Upcoming Surf! Thursday late afternoon or evening an Easterly swell rolls in, so in Satellite Beach some waist high waves may come in with South to SSW winds, maybe. The way the period is lined up, it may not be to bad on closeouts.
Friday morning awesome glass!, models have been indicating for a few days in a row of providing us a 3 foot at 11 or 12 second period ground swell. With offshore winds up until late morning. Easterly swell, so we could see some waist to rib high sets at the Cape or at least the Pier, and Chest high plus down South in Satellite Beach.
Saturday could have some knee to rib high leftovers going from the Cape to Satellite respectively. Winds maybe brisk South, maybe a tint of offshores, but hard to say right now. Late Saturday a South weak wind swell rolls in for a couple days, but don’t expect much form or anything but slop chop.
That’s if for now. Get excited about Friday folks. Sorry for the back log on updates. We have been blessed for having to burn the midnight oil to get jobs done. Such is life. Thursday night we’ll confirm the Friday wind situation.
