South Florida surf photo sesh: Two week swell train, tons of photos of south Florida surfing

What a run of waves we've been having!  Even before this prolonged long period swell we had a couple epic refraction swells. Hope everyone caught there fair share.  It wasn't perfect every day but there were some days of glory, and Thursday, February 28th was one of them.  The boys were out in full force and line-ups were crowded, but Lyn Meyers found the right spot to be and caught some blue bombs.

A few days later on Sunday March 3rd , it lit up again with perfect conditions, and crystal clear blue water.
Bargain Bob Baggett was out shooting all day again, loving the perfect lighting and water color, and of course, all the action in the water.  Hybrid Photography's Rich Budryk put the camera down to get some shacks of his own.

Adam Byerly was also there wondering if we should change Big Wave Dave's name to Big Air Dave?

Less than a week later, conditions lined up again on Saturday March 9th for some nuggets to come it.  Brian Hazeltine of Everything Under the Sun Photography was out shooting all the action.  Local power surfer Peter Mendia was out doing what he does best, putting it on rail.
