TSV, 6:00 AM – Shell Island
Skunked. It’s rideable, but there is just so much water and the swell direction seems to have missed us for the most part. Going to enjoy a novelty shorebreak session.
St Andrews State Park
Daddy Surf, AM – SASP
Beautiful morning, but Panama City Beach seems to be missing most of the surf. You may need to go west. Skim looks like it could be fun because of how high the high tide is.
South Walton Beach
Daddy Surf, 12PM – South Walton
Took a Surf excursion with Mommy Surf, Hunter Morris and met up with some friends (Kyle & Charis Rowland) down on 30a at Blue Mountain Beach for some Sunshine and Surf Fellowship – Thank you Jesus for family and friends and Your Love and blessings!
Enjoy the pictures. We may have a small bump for leftovers in the morning. Faith – Family – Surf!
TSV, 12 PM – Okaloosa
We traveled west and found a decent beach break that was ideal for longboarders, but challenging for shortboarders. Waist – Chest with the occasional Mysto Set. Beautiful water and mellow lineup.

Perfect Longboard conditions
Some sneaker rights showed up on just the right midsize sets
At around 12:30 a swing set set appeared out of nowhere. I took off sideways late and airdropped into what may have been a makeable left tube (by a more capable tube surfer). This wave was one of the largest I saw the entire swell. 20 minutes later Tate and I were caught inside by a set that was potentially even larger, and neither of us could get position in time. These sets were nothing compared to the size of the swell that reached Pensacola or Orange Beach to the West. But their sudden unexpected appearance this late in the fading swell at this beach had us scratching our heads.
