    Will this be the storm that brings beautiful groomed waves to the Gulf coast?

    Some of the best surf I have seen have been on those rare occasions that a strong storm sends a pulse in the Gulf.This summer has been a virtual shutout for the wave starved gulfsters. Really hoping this will bring some fun.

    would be awsome to get more waves on the gulf coast, last week here in sarasota we had some of the best waves ive seen down here in a while, was actually able to get three turns to the beach for once

    Once in early December a tropical storm stalled just north of the Yucatan straights. Sanibel island was going off - perfect two to three foot overhead lines kinda rolling towards the north. Very rippeable, with 4 guys out. The tide had come up 3 feet above normal so we were surfing over trees that were laying on the beach. A wipeout would have sucked but it was so perfect that you could miss the branches sticking out of the water without a lot of trouble. Keep your fingers crossed. This is the time of year stuff just pops up out of nowhere.

    Yeah DP...were you around for Rita? Had one of my buds from SoCal visiting that week and we had 3 days in a row that looked like an artificial wave machine pumping sets. He spent that first day out just giggling at the endless supply of perfection.

    I may or may not have been there, i've been through so many that they all kinda run together, Floyd was the first Hurricane swell I can remember ever paddling out in, after that it's just one after another, oh and Bill stands out in recent memory too.

    Yeah. Those pics are good but they just do not convey the feel of that day. Just relentless good rides and so glassy.
