----------------PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!----------
For 40 years, St. Augustine's Original 24hr Surf Report, the BLUE SKY SURF REPORT, has been sponsored by (paid for) by Blue Sky Surf Shop, keeping the report free of annoying ads.
Now we would like to announce 2 new sponsors that will allow the Blue Sky Surf Report to continue into the future!
A new local surf photo website, featuring all local surf action photos for viewing and purchase, can be found HERE or at this link:
Local Surf Action Photos by DAVID MACRI
We'll be concentrating on Recent Sessions as they occur but also adding in Classic Sessions featuring many never before seen images of the recent and distant past. Look for Classic past sessions to be added regularly inbetween newer swells.
Best Viewing Suggestions on a desktop or hi-res laptop: once you've found the day that you want to view, tap the arrow for the slideshow and hit full screen icon. That will present the images in the largest format-you can watch as the slideshow slowly shows the images in order, or, use the forward & reverse keys for a quicker viewing, which is nice when viewing a sequence. All images can be purchased using the "Buy" icon.
