|Hurricane Gustav was an extremely devastating storm. As it plowed over Cuba and moved into the Gulf, it became apparent that Gustav wasn't going to hit the East Coast of Florida. So, new plans were made, and when Cory Lopez flew into to Tallahassee from California, Alek Parker, Peter Mendia and Shea Lopez started the 8 to 10 hour drive to Panama City, Florida from Shea's house.
Gustav was all about timing. Like most of these Hurricanes there is a very short window for surf and Gustav was no exception. Watching the swell fill in, to sleeping through the midnight peak of the swell, the crew still managed to get most of what this storm produced. Big outside A Frames in the Gulf to small but fun glass, Gustav delivered a variety pack of waves, and the crew made the most of it.
