Are you sure you didn't eat some purple blotters b4 you went out...haha...nah that's f*ckin' sweet, dude..
that story just reinforces how awesome surfing is, it's so great 'cause even though the lineups are getting more and more crowded, there's still tons of people who look at you funny when you say you surf, because they have no idea how unbelievably awesome it is...I surfed for 6 hours on Sunday, I wasn't getting out of the water until I was tired, and I was and you have no idea what those little far from from perfect waves did for me...it feels like I've been dead inside since about a week after my last session. This year has been the worst for amount of days surfed with the flat spells and all, and I've been really depressed and lazy, but after Sunday I feel like a brand new man, joined Crossfit tonight and did the WOD...I feel so f*ckin good right now and am super motivated to be in tip top for the hurricane swells...which are undoubtedly coming, there's no way were getting skunked! Awesome story, keep the stoke, I know I my stokemeter is supercharged!

On sunday i was paddling for a wave and I saw a fin out of the corner of my eye, as I popped up about 8 dolphin come out of nowhere and decided to ride the wave long with me, and when the wave ended they just disappeared, pretty f'ing awesome.

I am not surprised. I grew up surfing in Mayport since my dad was in the Navy and was stationed there. I see a lot of sea turtles, rays, dolphins, sharks there. Probably the one spot here where you will see the most wildlife. A few summers ago I was there on a small day with a couple of other surfers when a huge pod of dolphins showed up. There were probably close to a 100 of them, maybe a little more. Even baby dolphins swimming and breaching the surface with their parents. They hung around for about 10 minutes then moved on. One of the coolest experiences I've had.
The place can hold size too. The beach has a gentle slope and rarely dumps. Be careful though at low tide because there are some submerged ship parts in some areas on the Park side.
