Any update for Pinellas?
Gulfster shows a pic of some guy riding a waist-high wave in S. Pinellas as of like 1:00pm (didn't think you'd mind the mention since they link to this site).

I pulled up to the Pensacola pier at 6:30 am and the inside was slamming and closed out at shoulder to head high. There was a huge set coming through on the outside with some fast lines that looked pretty good. The face of those waves looked to be at least eight feet possibly ten. A couple of guys that had just gotten out told me that the jelly fish were terrible so I headed to a popular spot to the west. Sets there were definately over head but the waits were pretty long. As the crowd grew so did the jelly fish population. It was a great day despite the winds picking up around 11. Luckily the jelly fish started clearing out then too. I surfed for at least 7 hours.

I was the guy surfing the green 7 superfish and the also a 6' 2" Ricky Carrol. I kept switching boards because I couldn't decide which one was working better for me. When I had the RC out I kept catching mushy waves that would work better with my fish. I'd take the fish out which is really big, 6' 8", and end up in steep sections that I couldn't manuever well in. I had tons of fun on both boards, so I'm not complaining.
