After a quick trip out of town, I got back to Florida just as the last swell was hitting locally, as the weeks and weeks of hurricane surf came to an end.  At the moment, we have so many usable photos from up and down our coast, that it’s just a matter of time until all see the light of day and get things posted on the web.

We all hate getting caught on the inside just watching a set go by unridden. Bummer. PHOTO : @tomduganphotos

I just thought it would be cool to post the last day of waves that were here in Central Florida, Satellite Beach to be exact.  After two weeks of flat conditions, the wind is back up, so are the waves, and the forecast is saying in a few days it could be clean enough to surf and shoot a few more photos. Hurricane Tammy is moving along thru the Atlantic off our coast so it’s a matter of time before the surf starts up again. – Tom Dugan –

When I got to the beach, this was my second shot. I almost just packed it, up figuring it can’t get much better than this. Daya’s uncle, Rylan McCart on a clean one.  

It’s not a session without shaper Sam Barker getting his wave quota. Nice clean backside turn on a late afternoon wave. PHOTO : @tomduganphotos

Tom Davis surfed, left the beach, then decided to come back for a few more waves. Knowing the swell was finally over for the next week after a long run of Hurricane surf. PHOTO : @tomduganphotos

While local surfers are some of the best lifeguards and have helped save countless lives worldwide, these stations are now at most crossovers to help with ocean safety. While maybe modest in appearance any little thing that might help with a rescue cannot be be understated. PHOTO : @tomduganphotos

A group of girls came down in the late afternoon and caught a million waves and had a blast trading off waves with each other. Anna Campainha shown here was one of them and caught some nice ones stoking out her friends. PHOTO : @tomduganphotos

If the waves are good, Tyler Lawrence is always on it. Clean cutty at home. Photo here and GIF sequence below by PHOTO : @tomduganphotos

When it’s the last day of a swell, some decisions need to be made. Brad Miller dropping in as John Thompson contemplates dropping in. PHOTO : @tomduganphotos
