Nth Cal

Post by Beanpole » Thu Mar 22, 2018 10:21 pm

Nth Cal in Late May. Do you reckon it would be worth buying a good wetsuit and a cheap board for a couple of weeks travelling and surfing in San Fran to south in May?
Alternative is renting.
I presume there's cheap hock shop specials aplenty over there.

Craigslist.

Not crabmeat's list of schools he can't approach for legal reasons, the online classifieds.

That's what we are deciding. Probably as far as Santa Barbara I think.

According to friends who've spent time there, don't miss spending time and effort exploring the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay area.
And Santa Barbara's beautiful they tell me.
Not the best season for waves, supposedly, but should be a great trip nonetheless.
Nick probably knows more than anyone here about California, he lived there.

Agree about Santa Cruz, Monterey Bay.
