i hope we get at least one great day of surfing, or maybe even just two morning sessions, from this swell or the next one setting up.
last weekend was amazing down here in melbourne, from sat beach south seemed pretty damn good thursday, friday, saturday, and sunday morning. Secret spot #14 and secret spot #88 (jokes, but i'm seriously not gonna broadcast it) were amazing saturday morning. if you (daniel) or anyone (no big time kooks please) wants to get out for a session down here, let me know through this forum.
I lived in orlando a while ago, so i'm also somewhat familliar with some of the volusia breaks. I love bethune, if i didn't live down here I would surf there next time its good. The ns inlet is just too freaking crowded to surf when the waves are good up and down the coast. BUT, since i do live in melbourne, there are some breaks in the ihb area that I will surf.
I hope everyone scores some good, uncrowded waves from this next swell!
Although that Christmas swell in the first shot wasn't 92. It was like 89 or 90. I was living in Cocoa Beach at the time and surfed at 8th St that day. Next to the Hurricane Hugo swell (which happened that same year), that Christmas swell had the biggest waves I've seen in Florida. And holy **** was it cold.
Unfortunately I missed the big Halloween swell (the perfect storm), which was like 2 yrs later, because I had to work. From the looks of the shots I probably would have been under-gunned anyway. The only board I had at the time was a 6"6.
i would post them but they are not my photos, i'm just providing the link...but wow, wouldn't it be nice to get swell and conditions like ANY of those photos? maybe friday morning....i'm getting ready. lets hope those winds stay south or switch to a more southwest angle. i might even have to pull out the 6'3!
