As Florida inexorably approached it’s un-official labor Day weekend at the nexus of it’s tourist season and the capacity crowds that Spring Break and Easter brings, our winter surf decided to go out like a lion and a lamb at the same time with two days of amazing ( by Sunshine State standards that is ) waves and conditions on march 20th and 21st. Here is part one of a two part photo gallery that will post today and tomorrow. Thanks to all the photogs who contributed and please follow them on Instagram and as well at @easternsurfmag. – Mez –

3-21-2021: this great day of waves in central Florida to ring in the first day of Spring 2021 is hopefully a sign of good things to come both in the water and in getting back to the “old normal” on land. This New Normal shit is just plain wearin’ us out. Photo: Tom Dugan @tomduganphotos

Miami Beach was a mix of madness on land and in the water as crowds were maxed out in both environs as the spring break parties raged on land and the “Winter Spring” swell had things popping off hard for the hordes of surfers. Photo: Annie Tworoger @3rdandocean

And, speaking of excellent form, Asher Nolan put down his camera and got busy with his first true love, ripping out in the water. Photo: Mez @mezapixels

Chauncey Robinson’s new motto inspired by, and in tribute to, recently passed fellow Floridana Beach resident Charlie King is “Go Mental”, Kings decades old battle cry. Somewhere Snappy definitely smiles. Photo: Mez @mezapixels
