    Every Dog Has Their Day

    This is one of the best videos to come out of W. Florida. Sometimes the Gulf doesn't look like the Gulf. Since it's flat as a pancake out there right now, I figured I'd get the stoke train going and summon some waves out there. Enjoy...

    So sick that it barrels like that at those sizes. How far down the coast is that?

    Yeah bro, I was hoping you would have scored too, it's hit or miss (mostly miss), but when it's on, IT'S ON. You'll get it good one day. Keep an eye on the radar, if you see any type of storm brewing and headed for the Gulf, get down here. Also, it can get good in the Winter / Spring too. Those Low pressures can kick up something solid.

    The size when it's a good day will generally be chest - HH (sometimes 2-3ft+ OH), if there is a legit storm out there it'll rival just about anywhere on the E. Coast on a good day. Most of the video is from my backyard, which is anywhere from Clearwater Beach down to Venice, the video starts out at a couple spots in the St. Petersburg / Treasure Island area, which is about 30-45 minutes from my office. It barrels on the right conditions. Most days it's a mushy POS wave, but a few rare gems slide through each year.

    Paulie was havin a good ol time.

    Great vid. Brought me right back to those days.

    Right on Paulie!
