Hey, been up here in Fernandina Beach for the past 5 days. Glad to see folks getting some of our homegrown bread and butter slop o' chop. Does the body good as they say, eh? Got lucky up here myself and winds were dead calm Thurs and Fri with a SE swell rolling in, thanking God I checked the forecast 30min before leaving for the airport on this business trip. Water temps were chillin but no red tide. Pretty cool little trip actually, got a brew at the oldest continously operating bar in Florida and played Santa for some foster kids - what a hoot!
Hittin the road back home today and checkin the forecast, seems we got potential for refracto in the Tri-county tomorrow, possibly some pure N swell associated with the MONSTER low going off the NE. That's the pup which turned the midwest into a deep freeze and the whole State of Oklahoma into a disaster area.
Hopefully we get some early in the AM with lingering offshores. It's back to bread and butter chop o' matic for the rest of the week after that.

This Friday Dec.7th at the Key Biscayne Beach Club there will be the SFL Premiere of "Walking on Water", FREE ADMISSION. They are going to have pro surfers from the movie at the premiere, a live DJ, complimentary drinks and snacks. $5 Raffle for surfboards, skateboards, t-shirts and more including apple i-touch and i-pods. The party is going to have a Caribbean Christmas theme.
This flick has gotten rave reviews, don't be shy that it has a FAITH theme. It's the true story of 2 young surfers traveling to the hottest surfing spots in the world with a pro surfer and meeting up with some amazing people along the way. These kids learn how beautiful God's creation is, how cool it is to meet others who live in different parts of the world, and that the more we get to know God the more we enjoy his creation, his people, and Himself.
Props to Ketih Case who's been at the center of pulling this event together. Francisco and the crew from Miami's budding Christian Surfers Chapter have noted they'll be there too.
