Isaac kept St. Johns beachgoers away | News
ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- Not many surfers were out in the waves Monday - but Adam Bartoshesky and his friends were at St. Augustine Beach.
"The wind is supposed to pick up through the day. Figured we get here early and get some surf in," Bartoshesky said.
Few others did that. Most people heeded the warning about the potential for strong rip currents due to squalls from Isaac.
Meanwhile, most beaches in St. Johns County were closed to cars, except for patrol cars.
The high tide brought the water over the driving lanes on the beach.
It didn't matter much - because most of the beaches were vacant anyway.
While people can walk on the beach, very few ventured out in the weather.
That didn't bother a few surfers like Bartoshesky, who admitted the water was indeed very rough.
"There's a couple of people. You can't really see them because we're all moving around so much. It's kind of like a washing machine," Bartoshesky said.
