Surfing on 30A
Moving from California . Can you give me any info on how the surf is on 30A and where the most consistent spots are?

You won't be surfing here - if there is any surf at all there is a red flag on the beach. The gulf is often as flat as a pancake!
Surfing on 30A
Welcome to the area, I had the same question about 3 years ago when I moved here . Didn't get much help from the locals on the forums.
I have found that blue mountain does break every now and than but the closest most consistent break is pompano joes on old 98.
When we doe get waves they are pretty fun but it's just not that often we do.
And they don't close the beach to surfing on a single red

Did you catch it yesterday. I found a good sandbar around noon that was a solid head high. Pretty violent as it was breaking in knee deep water. Kind of breaking like Newport. You just gotta look around. Being a gulf coast surfer is like being a weatherman. It can be waist at one spot and 30 miles away head high. Give me a call sometime and I will fill you in on how it works around here. I am attaching a few pics of me at a few local breaks so you can see it actually happens. The big wave is one of our hurricanes. Which I oddly love!

Also, Bobby J do you know of any long term rentals in Blue Mountain Beach that may be available starting July 1st? Or know of someone who might? My family and I are having a lot of trouble finding a 2 -3 bedroom house. We would like to find one in BMB if possible. Thanks for your help,
