 Additional Information

Atmosphere

This spot breaks on anything from 1ft dribblers to well overhead. When everywhere else is flat, 2ndlight will have something(there's a reason they call it the Wave Magnet of Central Florida). It breaks best on a SE or NE swell, and when the tide is low going high. It can produce good barrels when there is a good hurricane swell.

Best waves in a while - Finally had some spare time when some swells showed up (small is better than nothing).  The tide was coming in, but the waves were still solid.  It was my second session of the day here and the wind was a bit stronger, but I didn't mind

First Florida session - So this was my first session since I left Hawaii and the wait to get my boards and a swell to arrive could not have taken longer.  The conditions were great for a fun session all alone.  I was in the water to watch the sun rise over th

answer this post - It's understandable that cash makes us free. But how to act if somebody doesn't have money? The only one way is to try to get the loans or commercial loan.

sorry - i was unfortunate to grow up in tampa, but having surf since i was a little kid and getting hooked at a very young age, i happen to be one of these weekend warriors that makes the trek to the east coast of florida. if the surfs not good further south, i usually head to 2nd light (shorter drive also). sorry if i happen to be another body in the lineup, but i can honestly say i give the right away to most of the locals.

Whats FEMA up to now? - After watching the latest attempts of man to counter the battering effects of the sea,I wonder what effect this latest assault on the shoreline will have on the surf. The planning engineers have a diffrent plan of attack than the last series of beach reclaimations. In addition to the derdge and pump method taht was employed last time, this time thousands of truckloads of sand are being driven in from a quarry in Cocoa. These steep clifs of sand along the north shores of the Melbourne beaches will according to design, erode in to a wedge of protective sand. At the same time filling in a lot of depleted sandbars that were starved of substance by hurricanes, dredging, port interference, etc... Point being, after a hurricane season that none of us will ever forget, man's interference may be a welcome sight for wave starved eyes.
