5 minutes of ambience at the Amelia Island beach near Jacksonville, Florida. I periodically EQ'd out some deep wind interference, but otherwise the recording is raw. A helicopter begins to appear towards the end of the recording.

If any of these sounds have been of help, and you are feeling charitable, please do consider donating to Freesound to help keep the site running (a link is also on the home page). Any donations are greatly appreciated! And for more awesome sounds, do please check out my sound libraries.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

You don't have to worry about crediting this sound if you are using it for non-commercial projects unless you want to (e.g. educational or non-profit activities), but if you use the sound for a commercial project you must credit the sound. If you would prefer to not have to give attribution for commercial projects, then take a look at the attribution-free license.

An example of how you might credit is by putting this in the description/credits:
"Ambience, Seaside Waves, Close, A.wav" by InspectorJ of Freesound.org

The sound was recorded using a "H1 Zoom recorder".

Originally recorded on 16th August 2017.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.

    Thank you Jonathan for a beautiful sound! My band SKOGEN (swedish word for "forest") used it in our song Polar Queen which is now on spotify. We added your full name (Jonathan Shaw) to the list of creators when uploading the song, but it seems like regular listeners can't find it unfortunately. If we upload it on Soundcloud, we'll make sure to add your name to the comment field of course.

    Thanks again, hope you like the song!
