Hurricane season is the most exciting time to be a surfer on the East Coast. It doesn’t always mean the best waves because overall, most of the epic sessions come from cold fronts after the wind switches offshore. Although, the excitement factor that comes along with a tropical storm or hurricane brings another level of fun to surfing and chasing waves in places you normally don’t visit.
Gabe Kling and a few of his North Florida friends took the drive west in search of sandbars on the panhandle and found some fun left tubes in between rain squalls and gusting NE wind.
