RICK WILSON PHOTO--7/13/06--A surfer goes off the top of a wave and leaves a cascade of water behind as surfers took advantage of larger-than-normal waves from an off-shore swell arriving at high tide and beautiful weather to ride waves at Vilano Beach in St. Johns County Thursday morning July 13, 2006. About 100 surfers, body-boarders and skim boarders utilized the conditions to enjoy a great summer day at the beach. (The Florida Times-Union, Rick Wilson)
