Slave to the Wave Surf Report and Photos


Knee to thigh high SE windchop this morning in Broward county. There are a couple of fun ones coming in for the longboard and for the groms on the shorty. By the time I got out to take some photos the tide was getting it. It should get fun again this afternoon with a lower tide.
