    some decent surf there, at least when i pass thru. I've never been there though when Jax got the better of the waves during a 'cane, but they do manage to get more of the aftermath after a swell passes thru. obv Mayport Poles are what ppl harp on. gonna be living w a kid who lived, surfed Jax for a while in about a month, and he was saying that Jax beaches are starting to get a bit classier as far as the area

    Currently live in Jax beach - its a great area to live - a vacation area without tourists. The surf is ok - generally better in the winter and as Unfurl mentioned there are a few spots better then others, but better to have some waves than none at all.

    Not as consistent up there, they get it good, but not as often.

    We hit up St Augustine when we go to the EC, theres a pretty good area north of the inlet and/or just south of S.A.beach that maybe just by chance, but have not been skunked yet. I keep telling the wife that's where I want to go after the boys are out of the house, I like the area and vibe. But as jbeach said, jax is less tourists.

    No prob, if you're looking for year round consistency, the window would be from Ponce Inlet to Sebastian Inlet, and anywhere in between.
