Editor’s Note: As part of the “100 days of Summer,” The Log will be exploring Destin and the activities it has to offer during the summer season. This week the featured pastime is wave runners..


The sun is blazing, the water is perfect, and everyone is looking for a fast and simple way to get out on the water. Two words will solve that dilemma — wave runner.

On a wave runner, riders can go solo, or bring up to three people to zip and meander through the waves along Emerald Coast.

“It’s mesmerizing and you just forget every problem you have,” said Boogies Watersports employee, Bobby “Bucheaux” Montz. As a twice-daily tour guide for Boogies’ dolphin excursions on wave runners, Montz told The Log that he couldn’t be happier with his career choice.

“If I call this a job, I’m gonna quit because I have fun doing it,” said Montz.

Boogies Watersports, located at 16 Harbor Boulevard, in the HarborWalk Village, offers something for everyone.
