I was gonna start a similar thread because it looks like I am moving there (Jacksonville) in a few months. Ugh. The comments so far don't give me much hope for consistency or quality. O well. Bet its a super cheap plane ticket to the Caribbean.
Jax isn't that bad, used to live and learned to surf there, and I may be making the move back, depending on how my job here in VB goes. IMO, the Jax/St Aug area is just a little bit more consistent, but a lot more surf friendly than VB. No surf zones, leash laws, free parking. Plus you're only in a suit from Dec to March. Also you get swells from all directions, which make for more 'surfable' days.
Plus you can do a quick strike to the Caribbean or Central America. Flying out of Orlando, round trip to PR avg's $200 and CR for about $350.
