Fun chop from Sunday on. Maybe fun good waves at spots that like south wind from Tuesday on?

    I think everyone went to Publix this afternoon.
    8AM Sat. wind looks like maybe N 17 knots (Windy, European model and GFS), but NW according to NAM model

40 knots at the 20 miler. Nothing like a little tropical storm breeze in February.

    One intrepid bodyboarder at Wabasso, who agreed that conditions were worthless. I may have half-decent video. I picked up a a New Jersey surfer who had drifted well south of Ponce Park from Spessard Holland Park. He also concurred that conditions were worthless.
    Things are looking slightly cleaner as we approach low tide. Sunday AM looks promising.

A little Wabasso video. Youtube's processing rendered it unwatchable, so Vimeo. The real news at Wabasso was the near lack of usable surf.

Cocoa Beach is looking kinda fun, but the paddle looks relentless. Four feet, plus some on the sets, but the interval is about as tight as as gets. 40 duck-dives to the outside, if you time it right.

40 duck-dives



Had to go north...
... still had plenty of size.

Killer paddleout. Killer waves. Melbourne Beach area.

BW at low to incoming was brutal paddleout. Lots of closeouts. Sat outside and got a couple of the sets that would crumble to let you in to get some speed to do something worthwhile.

So fun yesterday, guess I got lucky as it was not a hard paddle out just a long one, was able to ditch the full suit which was a bonus, good friends plenty of sets, open faces...Went out this AM early 650ish, was still real fun, couldn't tell from the beach but it was still solid head high sets on the outside, a bit soft due to the high tide but glassy w/ no wind (where was everyone?)...I think it is dropping and the wind is picking up ... 1st light was the call today. What's this next front going to bring?

Hoping for a repeat of yesterday with less size but NO indi was not working this AM on the outside, just capping and backing off...less water/more swell needed...BUT the waves that jacked up on the outside eventually made it to the shorebreak unbroken, so the shorebreak was real fun...really good if you are grom sized, nice sunrise..water a bit colder, back in the full suit, fun enough to start the workday...4 days of surf in a row, no complaints...Next up will be the Panhandle next week for any sizable surf (Head hi+ S Swell) water is usually much colder there this time of year (where's my booties, haven't used them inna' while) or maybe NSI for the short new NE swell event. Don't think S. FL will get any big Elephants headed S. on Thurs/Fri just baby ones.

Another round of fun at the nearby local shorey this weekend (I hope), not sure if my friend will go again, he was kinda spooked from last weekend; made it but never got a wave, he just wanted to get back to land..It was a true Gale though , this weekend will be less size, bummer, darn high tide in early AM again which always makes a huge difference it seems. Waiting...
