Flagler sophomore Kelsey Hammell was paddling out for an afternoon surf by the pier on Saturday, Sept. 18. It was around 2:30 in the afternoon on 4th street when Kelse found herself in a scary situation.
“I was surfing in the outside break. I was pretty far out and it was in between sets,” Hammell said. “It got really calm for a little bit and I could see there was something under the water circling around. I couldn’t see it, but I could feel it.”
