Daily Surf Report - 9/14/2011

Waves, waves and vibes

This Wednesday morning, the surf is good and the vibe is tight out there.
Be friendly and respectfull of all people in the water, when the waves are fun like this, in the middle of the week, the town's people truely have it to themselves. Come out and share a few with the community, think of each wave you make as a gift from the village! And let everyone have their "fun rides"~ especially the one's that might need/deserve to it more than you.
Today's ideal session would be shredding a shorty at the Groin, followed by noserides at the patch. Time your tides, and take'r easy ya'll....

Channel: Not big, but small and hollow, longboards drop in, and then most people couldn't outrun the section. Would be kinda sick on a fish, but the sets here are infrequent compared to the patch. Breaking off the middle groin bar, further outside on the sets.

Patch: Logtown, freeways are trying to clear up with the tide filling in. Currently a little too drained, but should line up more better with more water.

In-store Shaper Event:
David Vernor, the man behind Vernor surfboards, will be in the shop this Saturday, 9/17/2011, from 11am to 1pm. This is a great opportunity to talk boards and design with a local shaper. You can work out a custom order or browse the rack of in-stock boards. We have Mini Simmons, shortboards, hybrids, eggs, Mini-Mals, HP longboards and Classic Noseriders in the shop. Always hand-made from start to finish in Santa Cruz.

Just a reminder to pack your trash!!! PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT. Respect the Beach.
