Pensacola Surf Spots

Haven't seen another thread on this yet.
If you surf and live out the back gate Alabama Point is the spot to go (if and when there are waves). I've gotten in a solid 20 sessions since I found the spot, wish I knew of it sooner. Locals are friendly enough.
Don't know the spots up North in Pensacola, but I've heard the Pier and Fort Pickens get fun.
Take gulf beach highway all the way past Florabama. Go over the bridge and park in the lot for the restaurant The Gulf. Walk the sea wall down to the rocks. The break is next to the jetty.
Blonde Johns Surf Shop is the only one I'd recommend. Don't fall for the Ron Jon tourist trap.

Address of The Gulf
Park on the far right side away from the restaurant and walk through the sand to the sea wall. And watch out for sand spurs. If you see a lot of cars there, it's a good day to surf. If there is no one parked there, it's probably flat.

I've been out that way a couple times, not bad for the gulf. If you want a surf shop a little closer to Pcola/Milton, Innerlight is great.

I also grew up in the area, went to Gulf Breeze High in the late seventies. Our high school had a surf team, which existed mostly to consume Big Mac's and weed. In the winter , just east of P'Beach had decent Gulf waves, and back then was secluded enough for the other popular surf club activities. I mostly fished my way through high school.

Solid save at the end there!

From what I have heard and seen since Ive been up there to secure a house, Alabama Point and Ft. Pickens (near battery 234 and battery cooper) are the places to go. I recommend using a long board unless you're a 120 pound fighter. Ive also found some other sand bars and solid rights out there!

Somewhat along the lines of surf spots...what about skateboarding spots [parks] in the Pensacola area?

I’d think there’d be at least a few skateboarding parks down there...we’ve actually got a shit ton of skateboarding parks in Cincinnati...

...and for the record, NOMEX is good for skateboarding [possibly good for surfing?]...just in case there’s some sort of fire at the skatepark [possibly at the surf spot?]...
