Seasons in the Sun

Another season has passed and fall weather is firmly in-place for most parts of the country. Even in east central Florida, the hot weather has dissipated and the humidity has dropped. We recently had our first official cold front sweep through, with temperatures down into the lower 50's. Brrrr. I say that tongue in cheek, having survived the last dozen winters on the South Shore of Boston Harbor, where the 50's would be considered t-shirt weather.

But, Are You COLD Yet?

That's always the first question I get from fellow Floridians who know where I've been the past decade or so. They mostly want to know if I'm still wearing flip-flops. Hahaha. But having been settled-in since September, it feels like my blood has thinned out, as the saying goes, and these cooler temperatures actually do feel chilly to me. I even wore a 2mm wetsuit in the ocean last week, and I've been using my 1.5mm jackets all the other sessions. Below is a gallery for November as I ease my way back into surfing on the regular. I've been limiting my surf sessions to 60 minutes or less, depending on the paddle factor. And it's been windy, so paddling and ducking have been a constant thing. Despite this, I feel pretty good, and i'm looking forward to some cleaner swell come this winter. It's been a while since I've spent the cold season in Florida. I'm ready!


Well, Cheers everybody and Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the USA. I hope you're surfing where you are! And I also wanted to remind everyone that life is precious. I lost a good friend to a motorcycle accident recently, and another to cancer. So please hug your loved ones, don't take the seasons for granted, and try to live every day like it's your last. Memento Mori. Take a moment of silence in honor of these two remarkable people. God Speed Austin and Chris. You will be loved and missed.
