Wind and waves from Tropical Storm Isaac left the local surfing community a gift. Local resident, Connor Bowden, got the most from the waves. Shane Sparks, owner of Jetset Surf Shop, was out experiencing the action. Youngsters Kai and Sterling, had the chance to practice some skimming skills while their dad, a local contractor, surfed. By afternoon, at least a dozen surfers were waiting in the water to catch the right wave. Whether surfing or skimming, the churning waves offered a great way to blow off stress from preparing for a potential hurricane.
