What an amazing journey we had at ArtisGras in Palm Beach County, FL! The town of Jupiter was amazingly beautiful and the weather was 78 degrees and perfect every sunny day of the show. The load in and out was second to none and I certainly plan on coming back if they will have me.
The journey down to Jupiter was phenomenal surf wise! The surf was so big the beginning of the swell just before the show, but I opted to go further south to see if it would be bigger. As they say, be careful what you hope for, and was I shocked! The size was beyond humanly doable in the water even with the strong off shore winds. There was no one in the water from Melbourne, Indian Harbor, south, with the exception of Sebastian Inlet and Monster Hole which was not for the faint of heart. At my age, monster hole is out of the question.
We left Monster Hole and headed to Juno, stopping to witness the massive swells along the way. When we got to Jupiter, I went right to the inlet and the waves were insanely huge breaking out as far as the eye could see. Only Juno Pier looked somewhat doable however there were no takers due to the intensity of the rip currents and massive sized swells.
