Gulf Coasters Invade the Caribbean February 2023:
I told you guys I would give you an update on the new Frontier flight from Aguadilla to Tampa. I flew into Tampa Friday night and you know it’s just a big city bus with wings on it! What can I say- it left on time, arrived on time. Nice new plane, good ride, it’s amazing… I paid $137 for a round-trip flight to come see my mother in the nursing home in Largo for the weekend and it really worked out well… So I think that if your bringing a surfboard, extra luggage- you can purchase that online while you buy your ticket and that is the way to go and then show up with your board (unless it’s a big huge longboard they may mark it oversize). But point being it has never ever ever been easier to get from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico to Tampa! First time in my life after coming here for over 20 years I was able to catch a nonstop, direct flight. 2 1/2 hours- and you’re there for less than 150 bucks… I would just like to say thank you to Frontier Airlines for making it possible for me to go spend the weekend with my mom. I think for you guys, it translates into making it really easy to get down to PR and surf. Too bad we don’t have any waves(Inches on the south coast has small waves). If you did want to come down (who knows how long this flight will last but the plane was full that’s good). Keep an eye on the Jobos cam not that you want to surf Jobos, but you can scroll down to the forecast, and I always look for the period. I don’t even care about wave height I just need period. Like if it’s under seven-8 seconds like it is now I don’t bother going up there, it’s just dribble. But if there’s a pulse in the trade swell that bumps it up to nine seconds, like say 3ft@ nine seconds, yeah that’s worth a trip to to Isabela, so you could do a summer trip to PR. You just got a watch for a longer period… Like if that tropical storm comes towards the islands next week we might not get waves down here, not in Rincon but Isabela will get fun surf and for less than 200 bucks you can probably come down here. So let me know if that works out for you or if you have any other questions, thanks guys. I do guide work, we’ll catch some fun waves and I have boards to rent also- all we need is a little 9 second swell!
