Hey all, hope you enjoyed your Labor Day weekend. This blog report is about the SURF around the Tampa area over the weekend. Yes, you read it right, the surf. The tropical storms and hurricanes were nice enough to bring us some waves as a Labor Day present! The local beaches such as Indian Rocks beach, Clearwater and even Honeymoon Island in Dunedin, all filled with waves. I, personally, spent my whole day at Honeymoon Island on Labor Day and was lucky enough to catch some great waves. The rip currents were extremely strong though. Past the buoys in the water of Honeymoon, lies the biggest rip current in the area of Pinellas County. As long as you don't go too far out and are with another person, you should be able to handle the waves. The waves were anywhere from 5-8 feet, and were definitely powerful. Never thought I'd say this, but I'm ready for the incoming hurricane and storm season and excited to see the future waves they bring us here in the area. Here's a picture I grabbed from Gulfster.com to give you a feel of what we experienced.
