Editor's note: I am happy to say that there will be a wider perspective at play here on paddlesurf.net. If you haven't noticed, there have been posts put up by writers other than me... JWall, Big Chad, MdJ and others who've contacted me with a desire to share the stoke... and that's great! Today's post is the first of what I hope will be many reports from the East Coast. I've asked Capt. Ron to come aboard as an East Coast contributor and I'm sure he'll unleash some of his crusty wisdom onto these internet pages- and some radically cool photos, just like the ones posted below. Check it out:
A beach break can make you start thinking maybe I should have stayed home and cut the grass or boy the garage sure does need cleaning out. Hurricane Bill Photos: New Smyrna Beach, Fl. Photos are by a good friend of mine Kem Mcnair during Hurricane Bill Swell.
Peace, Capt Ron
Did I remember to pay up my life insurance? This one might leave a mark... Click on this pic so you get a full view of whats going on. How much cussing would you do?
Maybe I should have washed the car today...
Yeah back in New York We always do off the lips in our 40ft P.O.S. Searay on 15ft breaking swells with the whole family on board. Unreal!!! Look at the guys in the forground duck diving for scale.
Where the boat is is Standup heaven when there is at least a 4ft swell running its 3/4 mile offshore and you can bring one all the way through. We call that spot Shark Shallows mostly because of all the sharks out there and its shallow. But be careful on a lunar out going tide you may end up 5 miles offshore.
