I lived in St. Augustine for awhile & daytripped down to Daytona once. Had my gear in the car and scored some unexpected peelers. Definately your average beach break. If theres swell forcasted I'd go a little bit south and do some exploring...
If your driving, and not on any kind of schedual, I suggest you stop by St. Augustine. It's by far my favorite place in America, very artistic w/ loads of forward thinkers living there, and passing thru.

Thread: South Beach, FL surf?
'; pd = '
Don't really know about St. Augustine. It might be nice. But, we always passed it on our monthly road trips to FL from Charleston when I was in college. If you do get a chance to travel from Daytona...... then, by all means head south. Sometimes central FL has more exposure to the passing swells. "Second Light" is pretty popular and decent. Indialantic has a little more power then Cocoa and seems to be a hotspot for FL Atlantic Univ girls. Further south you have Stuart Rocks then Spanish House followed by Sebastian. Spanish house is by far my favorite (I caught it firing & empty 4 trips in a row - one of which was a springbreak trip) and a little less crowded then Sebastian Inlet. There is a really cool campground near there called Long Point w/ water front campsites that have electric hookups and nice showers. Worth a stay for a night when its on and firing (just get there early or make a reservation, it always sells out & is super close to all the surfing you could handle). Hope this helps. Anything I missed?
