Below are pictures from the last surf trip chasing down Tropical Storm Beryl. Steve, Ray, Elliot, Tricia, and Evan the grom, left Atlanta pre-dawn on Saturday, May 25, 2012 and started at Jeykyll Island (but this place only breaks on high tide due to some offshore shoals), then headed to St. Augustine (but the campground was evacuated due to the storm), and ended up at Ray’s brother Jay’s place in Melbourne (after much debate over how far we should actually drive). We surfed Saturday night and Sunday morning then drove back to Atlanta. The storm made landfall Monday near Jacksonville Beach around 12:10 a.m. with near-hurricane-strength winds of 70 mph. The pics don’t do it justice. We scored clean waves and double rainbows.
