CINCO DE MAY-OH! PART 2

Pumping Sebastian Inlet rightfully dominated the spotlight on Saturday, May 4th as a result of what’s now known in Florida surf lore as the Cinco De Mayo swell. But there was a continuous run of fun-sized, three- to five-foot, west wind-groomed perfection that was just as magical for the rest of the coast from Central Florida all the way up to the Georgia border during the weeklong swell fiesta that followed.

And yes, those following days might be considered “leftovers” by anyone who experienced six- to eight-foot hollow barrels on that now fabled Saturday super session that include some of our coast’s top riders taking it to the limit in an all-day surf marathon. But they sure were one hell of a great 2nd-place prize for those who got to partake.
