Florida’s east coast has produced some quality surf spots during the main swell season, which is during the winter months from November to March and generates surf anywhere between 1-10 ft. Time the waves right and you will be surfing some pretty classic waves all while the water is warm and the sun is shining – they don’t call it the Sunshine State for nothing!

The cultured surfing community of South Florida has shaped some of the world’s best surf riders such as Kelly Slater. For the Florida surfer there are a few go to surf spots that are perfectly rideable and can be really fun! But one well known and famous spot is at Reef Road.

The ritzy and glitzy area of West Palm Beach, Florida is home to an awesome surf spot called Reef Road. It’s a scene with beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, exotic locals and warm temperatures, which make for epic conditions when cold fronts come through the state leaving most of the swell. Reef Road, to most surfers describes the surf as long, clean lines and rippable walls with the big pumping waves. Pretty much surfers go there to get barreled and one ride can last as long as a football field.

“For surfers, it’s in large part due to the heralded break in West Palm Beach called Reef Road. With medium-sized left breaking waves that produce long barrels, this Zen spot – the more humble neighbor to ritzy Palm Beach proper – is worth the pilgrimage. Thanks to northeast swells, the waves are fickle, which makes them immense fun for accomplished surfers and a nice challenge for intermediates.”

Swells are rolling in now, get out there and surf!
