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.

    Perfect, using it as a last-minute attempt to get some extra seaside sounds for the intro of a surf school promotional film. Will be sure to credit you in the video description and credits.

    I used this for an animation! It was a really important component of the soundscape, thank you!

    Excellent recording. Using this for the intro of a song I'm working on. If it ends up on a commercial recording I'll be sure to give credit.
