    I have surfed Deerfield Beach Pier which is right next to Boca Raton. I surfed the north side of the pier and it seemed to be breaking the best there. It actually wasn't bad when I surfed it and seemed to have a decent amount of local surfers. I bought a used board from Island Water Sports which is right down the street from the pier (walking distance). The shop is actually a really nice shop and has a large selection of boards, new and used. Next to the shop is another shop which I think was a Lost Shop that had Lost Boards and Lost gear. I shipped the board home ups or fedex I dont remember. But it wasn't too expensive. I think there's a board rental there also. Hope this helps.

    your fundamental problem is the bahamas... south of wpb you are blocked by the bahamas (delray window excepetd) most sofla spots light up on nor'easter, not hurricanes. there are quite a few spots a bit north and you should just find them yourself... then wait for winter and you will see the reefs of sofla lifght up (at least for a day or two_) look at a map and fill the gas tank... this aint "rocket" science...

    I don't think its worth it to be honest. Its still uncertain what the path of Irene is going to do. You never know...NJ could end up being better than Southern Florida.
