Will we have local wind, or secondary swell disturbance?  Or will Tropical Storm Karl bring us the goods without Lisa’s throwing a tantrum?

The map below, compliments of awesome Wunderground.com weather, shows us that Karl about 1500 miles offshore, almost hurricane status, and Lisa, another 1500 miles out from Karl, should not interfere, and may even be slightly strengthening the gift from Karl.

karl-n-lisa-wunderground-com-compliments-927-am-on-09-22-16The swell actually hit the 20 mile buoy last night around 10-11 PM (Wed night), along with the Fernandina Beach buoy and the Ft. Pierce Buoy all around the same time, which is actually rare.

Don’t expect any glass this afternoon, after this morning’s glass, but Friday morning, it could be blowing SW by 4 or 5 am, and turning NW by 10 or so, and onshore probably by noon, and maybe enough to prevent morning sickness and glass by daybreak.  The winds are expected to be in the 4-7 mph range which is awesome.  The tide is finally with us !!!!  Size at daybreak, should be waist to chest high, from the Pier south, and by 9 or 10, we may see some shoulder high waves, at least on the bigger sets.  Minus the wetsuit, surf could look like the video below on Friday.

Saturday, should be chest to head high, with maybe only a few hours mirror glass up North , NNW winds, and semi-glass in south CCB and maybe Satellite.  Still light, so it may not throw much texture down South even though it’s expected to be NNW (which is almost onshore in Satellite Beach).

Sunday could be more of the same as Saturday.  The period drops to 10 seconds from 11 or 12, which could make it better, worse, or the same, who knows ?  🙂

 


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 🙂

A killer outside set, beautiful set…


Sunday afternoon late, we should see some of the swell rolling in with waist high waves.  The Groundswell/Windswell model, appears to build from Sunday thru Wednesday, peaking in the 5 to 8 foot range.  Thursday, if the storm holds together, could be the big glassy day with overhead waves and offshore winds in the morning.  The video below is of Hurricane Bertha in Cocoa Beach, 4rth street, from August 5 2014, shot around 10 AM that Tuesday morning. (it is still processing at YouTube, so by 7 PM or before, it should be ready)

For now, expect Sunday to have something around waist high late afternoon.  Monday builds all day with probably some head high faces before dinner timeOnshore winds.  Tuesday more of the same, but building.

Wednesday, could be the crazy day, anywhere from Overhead to 3 foot overhead with onshore winds.  The fetch (diameter of the storm), is not that large, maybe 500-700 miles, and it cruises from a hug the Bahamas on the East side very close, parallels the coast, and if it holds together, as it passes Brevard by a 100 miles or so, we could have epic overhead waves with brisk offshore winds Thursday morning, or whenever the storm passes by and holds together of course.

Get excited folks, get some exercise, sunscreen and make sure your boards are prepped!

A Small Southeast swell is rolling in, during the day Friday and will be here through Saturday.  We could have some knee to waist high waves with offshore winds both mornings.

The video below is an unknown surfer at 4rth street in Cocoa Beach on Tuesday.  I hope to have a 2 to 4 minute video of Big Tuesday in the next week.  Wednesday had some waist high plus waves too, at O Club and south, however, no video from Wednesday.

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 🙂


Yes, we had some one to two foot overhead drops on some of the sets today!  Solid Chest to Head high waves, See the Video below 🙂  How bout Tuesday?

Tuesday should be thigh to waist high, with maybe a few chest high sets, but my guess is down south only on the upper end.  Winds should be great everywhere,  WNW at daybreak, turning NW and then to North by around Noon.

THREE YEARS IN REVIEW VIDEO  of Johnson Avenue Surfers will be live on January 1st, 2014, yeah tomorrow 🙂

My apologies for not sharing any reports for the last couple of swells we have had;  as Y’all know, my main focus, is to share the Awesome Talent and Efforts, of those that surf from around the Neighborhood, by catching them on Camera or Video.  This may be at the end  of our street, the Jetty, the Cocoa Beach Pier, Satellite Beach and anywhere in between.

It’s taken me 70 or so hours to compile this baby, so that’s why I’ve been away from sharing any updates, and we all know that Surfline, Seaweed and Ross are there for that purpose anyhow 🙂

I will post the Video sometime New Years Day or tonight if I finish in time.  The Surfers present are Chad, Don, Dr. John, Sunny, Me (Oldwaverider), Chuck, Chris (Orlando), Joe (Boston), Lacey, Mike (my buddy from Lakeland), Dave (Sunny’s dad), Scooter, Ron, Tim C., Dennis (Core Surf),  and Paul (Jeremy’s kin and the Emu Bird Man).

I apologize if I missed anyone, and if I did, and you know I have footage of you, let me know, and I will update the final Video.  The Soundtrack part will be provided by Bob Marley, Guerilla Jazz of Hawaii (I hope) and perhaps one other artist.  I tried to use the Shins, but they have the U.S. blocked from using their copyright, so the tunes may have some change if YouTube lets me know.

Thanks for letting me capture the Great Times and Awesome Talent & People in sharing this compilation with You!

Happy New Year, and Be Safe 🙂

Surfing Video of Tim Calderone, with some mixed footage from a couple surf sessions at the Cocoa Beach Pier in November.

Today will provide more waist to chest high wind chop Surf , with chest high sets down in Satellite BeachWinds, go from NE to ENE thru the day,  in the 10 – 15 mph range.

Saturday, size drops and the wind switches to SSE in the morning and for the day.

Sunday, more size drop with strong offshore winds.  My guess, it will be mostly to small to ride except longboarders, and mostly at the Pier.
