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.

    I plan on using this in a black metal song about Jormungandr from Norse mythology. I will credit you and provide a link for it when I am done. Thank you for providing this really good quality ocean sound. Much appreciated!

    Nice recording. I would like to use this for a song called "Ocean Waves" I am currently recording. You can listen to an early version of the song on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/herman-kappen/ocean-waves-01. Once finished, I will post the final version on Soundcloud as well.
