“Chasing swells around Florida is an art form,” says Shea Lopez (third clip). “There are no guarantees, and if you wait until you see it going off on the cam you've already misssed the window. In a lifetime of trying to be in South Beach when it turns on, this was only the third time I've seen it with the quality and size of today. Today was as good as Hurricane Sandy, without the destruction, and a much lighter crowd thanks to it being one foot at sunrise. And like that, it was gone before the sun was even setting.” That’s fellow Sunshine State southpaw, Evan Geiselman on the first two. Video by Christian Oehmke.
