 Florida - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Florida is situated mostly on a large peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida.
Florida has the highest average precipitation of any state, in large part because afternoon thunderstorms are common in most of the state from late spring until early autumn.
Until the mid-twentieth century, Florida was the least populous Southern state; however, the local climate, tempered by the growing availability of air conditioning, made the state a haven, and migration from the Rust Belt and the Northeast sharply increased the population.

 Surfline | Panhandle of Florida   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Fortunately for travelers, the surf spots are concentrated into two sections: the Panhandle, which runs from the Alabama border east past Dog Island until the state starts to bend; and the lower Gulf Coast, which begins more than 200 miles south in Clearwater, where the swampy shoreline finally returns to sand.
The Panhandle is bordered on the west by Alabama and stretches eastward to Dog Island, with the best surf concentrated between Perdido Key and Panama City.
On the Panhandle, swells predominately come from the east and southeast winds associated with winter cold fronts, so, if there are waves, the wind is almost always onshore, and it gets bigger the farther you go in the direction of the wind.
