As the old saying goes, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Here, some surfers make the best of what everyone else sees as a bad situation.

Palm Beach, Florida was macking out with swells from The Perfect Storm. Piers were coming apart, boats sinking in the channel and a Captain is plucked from the raging sea.
Surfers were loving it!

Some crazy guys from the ’70s surf in 3″-deep beach break, schralp on skateboards, and generally make us think it is a miracle that they survived the filming of these clips. A couple of NSFW moments about halfway through.

I don’t know about the soundtrack, but there is some pretty beat footage here.

Yowza! Seeing this video, it is hard to believe so many good surfers are coming out of Brazil these days.
