Surf in South Florida

We went to South Florida to be with family for the New Year and lucky me, there was a swell down there. I went down to Pompano Beach with my good friend Darlan Lopes. It was a fun session with friends and ready to say bye to 2012!

Cold Fronts in the Gulf!

As the winter season starts, the Gulf is getting a fun cold front with some fun waves. South of the Skiway has been one of my favorites place to surf here in the Gulf.

Hurricane Sandy Part III

We found these barrels in Vero Beach. South Florida was kinda small, so we started driving north looking for good waves. Sandy delivered the goods! We scored waves all weekend, from South Florida, all the way up to Central Florida. Now, getting ready for Puerto Rico!

Hurricane Sandy Part II

Sandy has arrived in South Florida! I've never seen this part of Florida getting such big waves. South Beach was epic, best waves I've surfed in a while, not sure if you can apreciate the size of the waves from this pictures, but some solid 6-8 ft waves for sure with glassy conditions. By the way, it's kinda chilly here in South Florida.

Search for Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy is gonna bring probably the best swell South Florida has ever seen. We decided to make the drive all the way down to South Beach in Miami Beach and take a chance for good waves! this late hurricane is promising a lot!

Hurricane Leslie

Hurricane Leslie was not supposed to be this good, but it kept hanging around long enough to produce swell for few days in the East Coast. Surfing a hurricane from the West Coast to surf another hurricane the following week in the East Coast was a pretyy good exchange.

Hurricane Isaac

Hurricane season is heating up and now Isaac got through the Gulf and brought the best waves we've seen in the gulf in the last few years. We got swell starting on Monday, all the way through Friday. Best days were Monday and Thursday, clean conditions, glassy and head high. The other days got some wind on it, but still rideable. Surfing at home everyday was priceless!

Tropical Storm Debby

This storm brought some waves to the Gulf for more than 4 days, sometimes not so good, sometimes half way decent, but for sure plenty of size and rip currents. In these pictures you get to see a nice wave and some ugly blown out swell. The damage of this Storm has been the worst that I remember, all over Tampa Bay has been suffering the effects of Debby.

Tropical Storm Beryl

The Hurricane season hasn't started yet and we already have the second Storm for the year, Beryl. Last minute storm decided to hit North Florida, bringing some solid swell for the East Coast this weekend. 3 days of good waves, offshore winds for most of the time with waves in the 4-6 ft range. We surfed in the Sebastian Inlet area and also in Ponce Inlet. We really scored some good waves. Now, let's see what else this season has to offer!

Surfing both Coasts!!

What a weekend! I first went to the East Coast, Sebastian Inlet, to be more specific, got to surf first peak. It was going off, some sets coming head high, glass and barreling, I haven't cought that peak that good in so long, super fun. Then, I turned around and we got waves back home, not the quality of the offshore winds over the East Coast, here the winds were onshore, but I'm always stoked to surf at home! First photo shows Sebastian Inlet, second one is over the Gulf.

Puerto rico as its best!

We've surfed Marias down in Rincon, probably 8 ft plus, semi glassy and fun. We also surfed Wilderness big and chunky, way over 10 ft waves with glassy conditions, one of the biggest waves I've seen in Puerto Rico, but nothing like Margara, down in Arecibo, in this picture, you can see a glassy 8-10 ft waves from this perfect peak, A-frames all day long.

Chasing the swell!!!

I just got a call from a friend of mine and this is what is texting me, Puerto Rico going off for the week. I love this Island and by now, this is probably one of the last sweel of the winter season, so I'm packing as we speak, it's gonna be epic!
