Yewwwwwwww.... what a great run!
Such good sessions, most of them solo or with another surfer.

I rode 4 different boards in 5 sessions.... so fun!
It was a 14 sec. swell, which is pretty much closeouts at most Florida spots, so I did a LOT of driving!
Chased it from Cocoa Beach to Jensen Beach... and had some interesting days at the beach!


Note:
SoloShot was not following correctly much of the sessions....
BUT:
After 3 years of trial and error.......I think I finally figured out how to get it tracking correctly.
The last day of the swell was pretty wonky, so I spent some extra time setting up Solo and tried a totally different procedure..... PERFECT!

If this setup works in a few more sessions, I will make a "How To" video of what finally broke the code for my SoloShot3 Optic65

I hope you ALL get a run of waves like this soon!!

Cool video. Nice string of sessions you recorded. Caught some wildlife as well. Some seabirds and some silly birds. I especially enjoyed the new dismount/kick out you were working to perfect.

The ladies might've been less offended if you had both paddles out Creeky... bit of consideration mate!

The SoloShot picks up a lot of cool bird behavior... pretty interesting to review the footage and slo-mo some of their antics!

finsup, there were plenty of paddles on that beach

supsean, it was so nice to have that string of conditions!!!

As always great video Rick, thanks for sharing.

I'm particularly delighted by the number of falls included in this one. I was beginning to suspect you were some sort of robot mongoose sent from the future to destroy us all. It appears that you might just be human after all.......

Also nice to see some less than ideal conditions down there, makes my local break seem a little more bearable.
Keep up the good work!
