ESM Photo Editor Nate Adams trekked down to South Beach in Miami, FL, on Saturday, October 27th, arriving alongside a good chunk of the state’s surfing population, all of whom were frothing on the opportunity to say hello to swell from Hurricane Sandy. But before Nate could even write up a quick description of his trip, a few other South Florida spots stole his attention back down I-95. We did, however, snag his memory card before he jetted back south, and so we present to you Round One of what’s sure to go down in surfing history as one of the best weeks ever in the Sunshine State. Of course, ESM’s stoke is tempered by the thought of our Mid-Atlantic and Northeast brethren bearing the full brunt of this megastorm/superstorm/Frankenstorm hybrid as we speak. So stay tuned this week for more of Sandy’s offshore-groomed highs and tide-deluged lows…
