Surfing Ga., Surfing Tybee

It’s been a while since I posted some surf pics, Been so busy fishing and fixing houses overtime there has been some surf I have to work.  Finally caught some fun waist to chest high surf at a new location.  These pics were taken with my larger zoom lens and zoomed in on the computer.  The walk was far enough I didn’t feel like carrying the camera box.  Nice lil barrels coming to be had.       a 2016This little swell showed up unexpectedly last week. Went for a boat ride and ended up surfing fun waist high waves.  Need more now !!               b2Excellent condition Cheese Stick by Al Merrick  6’2″  for sale  $400 obo  call 912 308 3700

Found this wave yesterday,  This was sick !!!!  perfect left reeling for 150 yards easy.  I had a fun solo session, and no one for miles and miles and miles.  After each wave I caught I was exhausted, looking back out and realizing how far I had to paddle back outside.  Well worth the effort.   If you had blind folded me and put me out there I would have sworn I was in Indo.  This wave is the real deal !  I only had the time for a couple of pics before I freaked out and had to catch a bunch.  I would say these shots are about rib high sets were in the head high range.  What a perfect wave, and had it all to myself !  Anyone interested in catching this spot give me a call.

Hurricane Arthur didn’t disappoint us at all.  Headed to another one of my lil secret spots with Timmy Saunders and Trip Wolfe.  This wave is the bomb !  early in the incoming tide one bar was very much like a point wave, but as the tide came in we moved a bit further south and surfed a wedge of a beach break.  Barrels right and left.  After 5 hour surf session we were so toast,  I was so glad the surf was small the following day.  I couldn’t  do another session like that again.

Couldn’t find anyone up for the boat ride so a solo trip was in order.  Nothing better than having a entire beach and good swell to yourself and MARY LEE !  Looks as though we are on for another swell later in the week. w1 w2 w3 w4few shots of swell gone by   NO CROWDS !!!!!

right dec Fun little swell came thru yesterdsay,  after such a lack luster hurricane season we all are hungry.  Water temps have bounced back up as well.  I didn’t put the boat in and make the long run due to thick fog and not so offshore winds that would have made it  long and bumpy .  Hope fully the next swell we can make some runs

DSC_0027 DSC_0028south swell 2 south swell 3 south swell  I have guided the coast of Georgia for almost 20 years and have found some great surf along the way.  Coming from Cape Hatteras N.C. I was so so about the surf here but the fishery was insane !! After buying a boat and guiding I  found some incredible waves from punchy beach breaks to point like sand bars and the best of it all no one out.  When I say no one, you can’t even find a person on the beach ! Can’t say the coast of Georgia is the mecca for surfing but if you like uncrowded surf from waist to a foot over head, beach breaks, some point like sand bars and offshore bars that will make you wonder why your four miles off the coast dropping into some bombs this may be a place for you.  Did I mention no crowds !!! not even people on the beach.  You, your friends and some seriously fun surf.  Georgia gets surf year round but can be a fickle and when booking we take this into consideration.  Watching the swell, winds and tide are crucial.  I would suggest trying to book a week out and if the swell doesn’t come to we can either cancel or go fishing. hurricane leslie 3 hurricane leslie 2012 hurricane leslie2 hurricane leslie5 hurricane leslie6

 

Depending on where we want to go we can discuss rates do to some of the longer boat rides to certain breaks.
