We just got a big Nor'easter sweeping the entire east coast of the country. It came straight from the north so South Florida got the best of it in Florida. I went down there by myself for a couple of days and surf the Palm Beach area. I was surprised to see these waves. Wednesday, was a solid 6-8 ft plus waves and super glassy. I heard the day before was even bigger. Thursday was as good as well, but fading in the afternoon. I had a blast! plus water was so warm and blue crystal clear water! Beautiful view behind the palm tree!
We decided to spend the whole week of Thanksgiving in Tennessee. My entire family got a cabin in the middle of the woods in Smokey Mountains Park, away from the water. This is my first time seeing snow, that's why I'm posting this picture with my beautiful wife. We had a great time and I will recommend anyone going up there, so nice and quite!
The East Coast got a first taste of the winter season coming up! waves were as good as you can see on the pictures for most of the weekend! the bad news is that we are already in wetsuit season...yuck!
Last 3 days have been fun! Hurricane Gonzalo got together last minute, but it delivered the goods. This has been one of the slowest hurricane season I remember, but finally we got something worth waiting for. I got to score 3 solid days of surf!
The forecast for the system has been all over the place, but I took a chance going a day before the "good day" and the gamble paid off. Central Florida was going off with some good gems, so bad we couldn't get water shoots, but waves were solid 4-6 ft with glass conditions for most of the day.
Hopefully, hurricane season is only warming up!
Hurricane season has a late start. Bertha delivered the goods but it wasn't as good as the forecast was showing, still got to surf for a couple of days this system in New Smyrna Beach. If it wasn't for the crowd, it could've been a better day out there.
This is just me going over the lip.
The only reason I'm posting this picture is to show you what a beautiful day it was down in South Florida! the waves were ok, but the weather was so nice! the water was even warmer than Hawaii, unreal! first session without a wetsuit.
A solid day at the Log Cabins! this spot is close by Pipeline, you can pretty much see everyone that is surfing at pipe from here.
I got a couple of good sequences, we just need to go through hundred of pictures before I can start posting more, this is just a preview, I'll be posting more in the days to come.
Now my time is coming to an end in Hawaii, I enjoyed my time, but I'm ready to go back home.
I'm having a great time here in Hawaii, my mind has been busy with some personal issues I have going on, but I'm glad I'm surfing some good waves! I made this trip with Luis, Marcos, Manolo and Cano, some good friends from Puerto Rico and Florida. It's important to get along well with your the guys you are traveling with in a surf trip, trust me on that. By the way, couldn't avoid the picture with Bob Marley!
We have surfed few spots in the Island of Oahu, we are staying in the North Shore right next to Waimea Bay. So far, we surfed V Land, Log Cabins, the West Side. Now taking a look at Pipeline. The whole week we've cought some 6-8 ft waves, but haven't found a good solid swell, it should be coming soon.
This weekend I worked at the SURF EXPO in Orlando, Fl. As always, I had great time!
I worked at the CUSTOM X booth. Another great news I had from ZINKA, they used my profile shot for their wall paper at their booth, I was so stoked to see it!!!
I can't complain, great way to start the year!!!
