Daily Surf Report - 4/15/2012

Overcast and foggy, almost drizzle, but no, chilly, semi glassy with variable wind. About 52 degrees out, maybe we'll see sun later...? There are some people camping out on the beach next to the dead seal, a true kodak moment.

Channel: some little peaks pushing through, was fairly weak on the high tide and is improving a little with the outgoing now, however the rip current through the channel is mucking things up a bit. waves are in the knee to waist high range, maybe a few chest here and there but mostly burgers with no fries or shakes. Mostly longboards out, about 10-15 guys and 3-4 SUPers.

Patch: a few people were out on it early on, with some little knee high waves rolling through, but now that the tide is dropping there isn't much happening out there with no one out currently.

Michel Junod surfboards are now in the shop!
Come by to check out some classic longboards and eggs.

"Located on the Westside of Santa Cruz, a block off of Highway 1 and a few blocks from Steamer Lane and the other Westside breaks. We have a crew of 4 that has a combined working experience of over 125 years.
Running a shaping and glass shop is always extra work, but being able to oversee the production of each board allows more attention to detail and makes each board truly custom. Surfboards made by surfers is in harmony with much of the local spirit here in Santa Cruz. We are part of a community of small businesses, craftsmen and artists who’ve chosen this coastal town to be their home.
The “ride everything” movement has sparked interest throughout the surfing world to fine tune previous design movements and incorporate various design aspects of these movements into new exciting shapes that bring unique experiences to the curious and adventuresome surfer.
Living in SC, maintaining my business and shaping custom boards has been my top priority. This remarkable surf town has blessed me not only with many friendships locally, but also has given me the opportunity to build new friendships with people I’ve shaped boards for from all over the world. There is a special joy in receiving compliments from customers who have expressed their gratitude for my making them an exceptional surfboard. I have found that a reputation is built one board at a time."

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