Daily Surf Report - 5/21/2011

Well it seems Rapture Day came and went so if you're not dead or in Indianapolis come the F out to the beach and celebrate with a surf!

Clear blue skies and sun this morning. Current temp is 55F and it promises to be a nice beach day. Very light offshore wind a smooth ocean surface. South swell showing in water and a bit cleaner today. More tide will improve the surf later in the day.

Today's musical selection is all about Love, Death, Drinking and Jail. All day Social Distortion. Come get your OC punk on and swing by the shop for a listen.

Channel: Waves breaking in the thigh high + range. Longboards in the water catching lefts off the 2 sandbars. A bit cleaner than it has been in the last few days.

Patch: Working outside past the rock and a little south. Waist to chest high on the low tide. Longboards and SUPs in the water. Will improve as more water fills in. Patience pays off when sets come through. Nice, long, smooth rides.

Beginner surfboard SALE! Making room for new inventory and clearing out some foam boards. Perfect to learn and practice your surfing on. These are the same boards we use to teach surf lessons.

10' Blue - $150 - perfect for men.
9' Red - $100 - perfect for women.
7' Yellow - $250 - great for groms. Softboard exterior with hardboard technology inside. Will surf great for years.

We have new locally shaped SK8 Hand Planes in the shop made from recycled skateboards. Pair it with a set of Churchill fins and you will always have a smile on your face after your session. Each plane is unique and has individual signed artwork. Come by the shop and check them out. Makes a great gift for the surfer in the family.

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