showed up around 10am...  a few surfers out near the south pier trading turns catching some decent 2-3' swell...  was worth the trip there...

later on a buddy showed up and let me demo his new SUP 11' paddle board...  it was a pretty decent experience, not sure i'm ready to own one myself...  moved down the beach a bit and caught consistent 2-4' waves on my INFINITY longboard...  someone body-boarded a bunch and tried other boards too...
 
 
i was in Stuart Florida over on the east coast for a day, and was lucky enuff to rent a board and go surfing on a freak swell that rolled in for 1 day only...  rented a 9' BIC hollow plastic board and a 7'8" FOAM board, and ripped it up on some big mushy waves that were 4-7' and 3-4 seconds apart... 

i would like to take this opportunity to thank the GULF coast of Florida for preparing me for just about anything...  after milking mushy little gulf waves, i feel like real atlantic waves are almost too easy to catch...  haha :)
