old timey - I used to surf flagpole & reef in the 70's and early 80's. Before A1A had been sucked into the sea for the last time. THATs when it was epic. And yes, scott mcranels was, and probably is still a dickhead.

west coast - so yeah anonymous, i have thought that if we blew up mexico then west florida would be a surf mecca almost. any good, strong hurricane swell in the gulf will usually send the gulf one day of world class surf. i surfed katrina in fort walton and it was just like costa. have you found anyone to talk to about that?
