Best of luck to the folks dealing with now Hurricane Isaac. I hope the damage is as minimal as possible and recovery as quick as can be managed.

Here is a short late day video from last Sunday when the tropical storm was passing over Florida. The public beach had been closed and no lifeguards were on duty.

We focused on avoiding squalls and threatening feeder bands, kiting in the clear holes, then landing and securing well before the next feeder band came along. Riding in such conditions is dangerous obviously enough, squalls just push it over the edge. They can do unexpected things too so it is best to react early to secure. Ride within your abilities and experience, avoid squalls.





Thanks to Vic VW for the unexpected shoreside video and to Bret, Sean and Roy for being in the clip!
