Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
Florida receives a lot of attention as the focus of the surf scene on the US East Coast but unfortunately it doesn't receive as much swell! Semi-tropical, year round climate and a culture dedicated to leisure doesn't offset the generally poor sandbanks and mushy conditions that occur most of the time. Hurricanes are the exception to the rule when powerful lines of swell will turn on classic waves at a few spots, but the wait can be misery. Florida's long Atlantic coastline consists of barrier islands, separated from the mainland by the Intracoastal Waterway. To the west, there's the equally long Gulf Coast, which has erratic surf at best. The beaches near Miami suffer from the swell blocking shadow of the Bahamas but Palm Beach County has the best aspect for NE swells and has a few breaks that handle the biggest swells. The North Coast from Jacksonville to New Smyrna Beach features a long stretch of flat beaches which you can drive along to choose one of the endless peaks between the occasional jetties and inlets. However, it is the centrally located ?Space Coast? that is the surf industry cradle and home to such famous locations as Cocoa Beach and Sebastian Inlet.
