Surfing the Emerald Coast — The 70s

In honor of this great surf week we’ve had out on 30A, we’re taking you back to golden days of surfing — the 1970s. Check out these vintage Super 8 films of some of the young hot shots who were ruling the waves back then.

Thanks to our friend Shane Reynolds of Color Earth for compiling and sharing this treasure trove of memories from beach days gone by. Watch for some footage from Grayton Beach, as well.
