Cold Front

Cold front in the gulf means waves!!
This is my first session in the gulf after a long flat season for gulfsters. Hopefully these cold fronts are gonna keep coming, I just wish it doesn't get as cold as last year.

FBA # 3 presented by CUSTOM X

This was our last event for the 2010 FBA Season!
Waves were fun and the crowd really enjoy this event. I've been the Director for the FBA for few years now, but even when sometimes I get tired, I really enjoy putting into our sport. I'm glad it's over, so we can start working on next season, see more at

Back Home

Now, I'm back home!
This has been one of my best surf trip ever!
I surfed everyday some perfect waves, I couldn't believe it, 6-8 ft, glassy all the time. I was surfed out everyday and still have time to watch the Rip Curl PRO. Wacthing Kelly winning his 10th World Title is a highlight in my life, that was fun. On top of that, we party every night like there was no tomorrow, I stayed with some that owns a club right at JOBOS and his apt is right on top of the club, we got VIP treatment the whole week, too much drinking I have to say.
So, at the end of my trip, I had a great time, the only thing is, that I couldn't get one water shot at all, so hard to find a photographer with the main event taking all the guys, but I'm not complaining, next time!!!!

This is my first time going to a CT tour contest, what an event!, these people put together an amazing contest.
Last night, hanging out at CHEERS for the official Billabong party, Andy Irons was suppossed to be there, sometimes life is cruel. I took that picture to honor his memory.

Waves and Halloween!!

The waves keep coming into the weekend and Sunday was a very good day for waves. One of my best sessions in Florida in a while. Head high, glassy waves and still warm water, can't beat that. Our friend Randy took the time to get some water shots like this one, thanks!!
Now, getting ready for Puerto Rico!!!!

Wind swell all week!

The East Coast was having this wind swell pretty much all week long. Nothing big, but just fun enough to catch some waves. Hopefully this weekend will get good, it's looking really good in the forecast, right before going to Puerto Rico!!!!!

ground swell over the East Coast

Yesterday we got a nice ground swell over the East Coast, solid 4-5 ft with offshore winds for most of the day, you can beat that!
Winer is coming early this year, hopefully good swells from it.

Hurricane IGOR.

Hurricane Igor was not the clean offshore swell like other major hurricanes, but this one brought some good sizes to Florida. We went to take some pictures from this swell. I'm barely making it out of this barrel.

Hurricane Earl 2010

Two days with Earl from Alejandro Abreu on Vimeo.

This hurricane season has been pretty active. Earl got the biggest swell so far. We surfed down south, vero Beach area and Wabbasso. It wasn't as big as up north, but for sure the cleanest. We should have more picture and video later on.

Chasing Hurricane danielle up in New Jersey

At last minute, made a decision to go to New Jersey for the weekend to chase Hurricane Danielle. That was my first surf trip to New Jersey. Best conditions we found was at Manasquan Inlet in point Pleasant, NJ; 6ft waves and glassy conditions. Good looking barrels for sure. Saturday night got to go to New York, hanging out with Luis and Marcos for the weekend.

TD # 5 in the Gulf.

Nice to surf at home, this Tropical Depression is not quite as strong as a hurricane, but we got some decent swell, waist-chest plus waves and windy as hell. Keep them coming!!

COLIN delivers!!

This weekend we had a solid couple of days of waves. New Smyrna Beach was a better choice for this storm and Sunday I was one of the first one in the water. Some solid 5-6 ft waves and offshore winds most of the day, what else can you ask for?, crowd was kindda heavy, but plenty of waves for everyone.

International Surfing Day today!!!

Today is International Surfing Day, maybe no big deal for anyone, but Surf Shack Surf Shop is throwing a big party today, pretty much all day long, in St Pete Beach.

Bye California!

I will definetely go back to California. It's a great place for surfing. We went from Oceanside, all the way up to Malibu and every town in between looking for waves, even thou, we stayed in Huntington Beach. I really enjoyed that, every town has its own identity, as soon as you drive few miles, waves, scenary, layouts, pretty much everything is different.

California trip

California is a good place for surfing. If the water wasn't so cold, maybe one of the best place I've been for surfing.

Friday, June 4, 2010


Southern California has some great breaks, you can drive and drive and find spot after spot. The only thing is that, water is cold. It's almost summer and weather and water is still cold.
We surfed today in Huntington Beach some good solid head high waves, after checking spot all over the place.
California has some good looking views.

Wind swell!

Today was hot as hell, but we got a decent wind swell in warm water already. This might be my last time surfing in the gulf for a while, before the Oil spill comes our way. We are just days away before we see the effects of this big mess. You have no idea how upset I am now with this crap!!

Saturday, March 20, 2010

East Coast

We went to Sebastian Inlet this week for a solid groundswell over the East Coast. Randy tried to do his best, waves were closing out really quick, even when the wind was offshore most of the day on a solid 5-6 ft waves.

Monday, March 15, 2010

Warm weather finally here!

Even thou, we are stil getting cold fronts way in to March, weather is finally warming up! I'm still wearing a wetsuit, but I can tell we are about to hang it in the closet soon. We've been having waves from this last system all weekend long!! nice to surf with some sun on your face!

Long weekend of waves!

The Gulf keep having swells from all these cold fronts coming this winter. I guess EL NINO is the one to blame.
Saturday and Sunday were both decent days for waves.

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Surfing at home!

This winter has been great!...This is classic small and glassy day in the gulf after a cold front. We've been getting waves almost every week.

Monday, January 25, 2010

Back home!

I'm glad to be back home,after a nice trip to Trinidad & Tobago. Even better when we keep getting nice swells in the gulf. This is what I surfed this afternoon. EL NINO has been great!!
