The winter storm that dropped more than 30 inches of snow in six different states over the weekend brought some unusually high waves along the Florida coast, with the best waves in our area seen in central and southern Palm Beach County.

Local surfer and videographer Morgan Calenberg captured the amazing wave swells using a DJI Phantom 3 drone a little north of Lake Worth Pier on Sunday. 

“Winter Storm Jonas”, a name given to the monster winter storm by The Weather Channel, “sent some perfect refraction swell to a not so secret sand dredge spot in South Florida,” Calenberg said in a post on YouTube.

WPTV’s own resident surfing guru, Surfing Weatherman James Wieland, also shared several photos on Twitter over the weekend:
