Winner of the Biggest Gulf Wave Contest: We gave the unbiased judging panel the entries and they have come to a conclusion. The winner is Mike Dolan. They used scientific method, measurements and common sense. We wanted to be fair and impartial so we left the duties to judges. If ya don’t agree with the results all we can say is better luck next time. Will next time be a possible biggest air contest??? Below is Mike Dolans shot. Email me Mike and we’ll take care of your gift card.

9am Cold Surfing Update: Cold guys. Air temp around 48 this morning but the has warmed up a few tenths of a degree to 63.7. Waking up to frozen knee high waves with chilly thigh sets. Maybe an occasional icy waist set out there. Suns out though. With high tide around 2pm it should be best from like 10:30am-2pm. Fading throughout the day. We have a lot of photos to digest from yesterday and will be working on that today so stay tuned and stay warm. We’ve gotten a lot of submissions for the biggest wave of the Gulf contest. Many spots were checked, many spots were charged. The judges will decide the winner later on today. For where and when to surf check the Updated Saturday Full Surf Forecast.
Water temp pushing 63. Check the red tide at Red Tide Status. Sunny, with a high near 66. North wind 3 to 5 mph.
