As nearly the entire East Coast enjoyed a shot of south swell on Sunday, Dec. 15; Sandbridge was no exception. While a couple of feet smaller than the Outer Banks to the south and Delmarva and New Jersey to the north, we were treated to some clean waist- to chest-high peelers with perfect offshore winds.

These conditions meant the Surf & Adventure Co. SUP crew was on it for a marathon session at the south end of Sandbridge. The swell opened up some racy, running barrels that provided a challenge that the boys were more than up for. SUPs are great in fast-breaking waves since the volume allows for an unreal amount of drive to beat and/or make it around sections.

Big thanks are due to Jill Thomas for snapping these photos on a cold day. Enjoy!
