Surfing Tropical Storm Emily Video

Skimboarding at 880 Mandalay Ave, Clearwater Beach, Florida

It’s summer, and if your interested in catching a wave this time of year you can usually catch one on a skimboard. During the evening a decent little shore-break wave can come up if enough of a sea-breeze forms, typically from a northwest wind. We usually look for the sea-breeze to start to develop after around 12 noon. By around 4 or 5pm there can be a really fun skimboarding wave at the right spots.

Sharing is Caring: A Tropical Low Pressure Surf Video

It was mostly sunny after around 11am. By mid-day the winds were pretty much completely offshore. The lineup was crowded, but that’s just what you can expect this time of year on a sunny day. A lot of people were out having fun in the playful little surf. There were even a few snook to be had off the end of the jetty during the outgoing tide. A great day from the start when a nearly perfect rainbow formed to this afternoon glassy surf.

Sand Key Video: Thrashing Sand Key in May


I’ve said it once, but I’ll say it again. That was a really awesome May. ┬áThis video features high performance surfing from an incredible spring swell, just one swell of a series of swells from this epic month. The warm conditions and high surf repeating throughout the month were especially unusual, and delightfully so. It would have been just impossible to wipe the smirk off of everyones faces. Simply put, it was the best month of May we’ve seen in a very long time.
