Slave to the Wave Surf Report and Photos

Friday

More Flatness.

All eyes on Bertha for the next few days. Hopefully we get a little something from her next week.

FYI, They have started construction on A1A at the North end of Fort Lauderdale strip. Looks like there will be no parking on the east side of A1A for the next few months or so.

Art on the Slide will be a new area here on Slave to the Wave where you will find postings on surf related happenings in the art community here in the south Florida area and beyond. Many sea creatures pass the time on flat days with some paint or other media, visions of past swells dancing in there minds. This place here is a place to share with you some of those artists and to keep the stoke flowing. From time to time we also will be putting together ‘Art on the Slide’ art shows and events. The first of those will be coming up on Wednesday. Aug 27th, for the A Conversation with Garrett McNamara event.
