The Monday Blues
As winter nears closer, yet another cold front approaches. Two days straight of onshore winds brought a strong red tide that kept most surfers out of the water. If the coughing and irritated eyes didn’t keep you out, the man o’ wars sure did. Sunday brought stiff south winds and a building wind-swell. We knew relief was on the way Sunday night with the frontal boundary quickly approaching. Sure enough the winds clocked offshore first thing Monday morning. With the buoys reading 8 feet at 8 seconds and light offshore winds we were greeted with classic Panhandle conditions.

Swell continued through the afternoon with the winds lightning up. Here’s Will Warren tucked into another one.
