Pensacola, FL

Situated in the Florida Panhandle, Pensacola is known for its old world charm, picture perfect beaches, thriving wildlife... and being the proud home to the Blue Angels.  It's known as pretty laid back town - care free and easy living. But with the beach being on a sheltered sandbar break, the best conditions for surfing happen during hurricane season starting in June.  While hurricane swells suit a more experienced surfer, there are still surfable conditions most the year - but you gotta be ready to move when it hits.

The area is known for great seafood so definitely get your fill of fish tacos at Taqueria El Asador - Thanks to the crew at Innerlight for your list below of "Surf Shop Approved" go-tos!
