We’ve hardly had a banger of winter here in Central Florida. In fact it’s been pretty dang milquetoast.
No huge cold front swells steaming down the narrow gap between the Bahamas and south Florida lighting up our “big wave” breaks from RC’s to Monster Hole to Stuart Rocks to Pumphouse / Reef Road all the way on down to SoBe. Zilch, Zip and nada is what we got bit nobody is surprised.
So far anyway because it’s not quite over yet and we’ll see if the lion finally roars and the ocean sends a major March or April surprise this way before our zone goes to sleep and until the first tropical system rears up to get that season surf ball rolling.
It has not been an epic winter in this part of Florida but it’s been beautifully warm, fun and consistent wave-wise, especially this month, and, while not exactly March Madness around here we will take it for sure. – Mez –

Bill Mc Millan has the sandbanks of Satellite Beach’s RC’s dialed. On any given swell here it can be just you with 75-90 of your best buds scrapping for the same waves but you ain’t getting one off this guy. Trust us. Photo: Tom Dugan @tomduganphotos

Kyle Garson has recently migrated back from years in Costa Rica and has re-established himself and his family in Brevard County, a place where he doesn’t have to re-establish his place in any line-up anywhere in these parts with moves like this at an undisclosed sandbank in Indian Harbor Beach.

It ain’t about a death defying New England slab, a neck breaking Jersey barrel or a below sea level ledge at the the Lighthouse in Buxton but winter time Florida waves are fun enough for us who live here. Photo: Tom Dugan @tomduganphotos
