Nice!!! My wife and I take regular trips down to Sanibel, just a bit south of there. Like you, I only saw it surfable once -- nice knee high runners at the Blind Pass beach. The curse of seeing waves there that one time was that there was no way for me to get a surfboard -- really nowhere to find one, and otherwise no reason to bring one. That said, you really lucked out with the generous board sharer! Awesome.
