    Your not getting into that kind of surf this first time around. Donít worry about that yet. Unless hot chicks in bikinis is too much for you to handle. In which case you likely need some other help
  2. Free to travel surf jong, where to go for lessons....

    That looks good. Is it in solid?




    Childhood friend once took a dump in the water. Have him shit for years. Still do when I see him. Paddles about 100yrd outside the line up, pulled down his...

    Actually feces does not damage the neoprene like urea does. And the warmth does not wash away as quickly. Go ahead and take a dump in your suit if you can accomplish that without pissing; your all...

    I bring a hanger for my suit while camping. Rinse after surfing, hang from line until dark. Wrong excess water from the cuffs, and then I put the suit inside a vehicle over night. Or at least under a...
  5. It is not a fiberglass board. It is foam....

    It is not a fiberglass board. It is foam. Totally different repair. I imagine with foam boards you just need the correct adhesive like 3Pin is thinking.

    OTOH, not sure if is dot a manufacturing...
  6. Yeah, legs/feet can help with steering a board...

    Yeah, legs/feet can help with steering a board like a rudder would. It does slow you down by adding drag. But that can also be a plus. Sometimes you need to slow down and allow a wave to catch up to...

    Spent some time on the 8í foamy while hanging with my son. Paddling around the shore break and insiders. Donít think I could actually duck dive it. But I would make sure I was perpendicular to the...
  8. Im sure you looked like a kook out on a lake...

    Im sure you looked like a kook out on a lake trying to duck dive. It is actually much easier with waves, as you are going with the flow of water under the wave. Still great practice to get the feel...

    I surf with a 1.5mm squid lid which is great for keeping the sun off and wind out of my ears. That would be excessive in SoCal in summer. They do make nylon coat with a velcro strap. Something like...
  10. Rinse suit after every use. Dry by hanging crotch...

    Rinse suit after every use. Dry by hanging crotch over top of hanger, in the shade. Donít hang from shoulders (it wears out the shoulders) and avoid UV light (it degrades the neoprene). Donít piss in...
  11. Wet wetsuits go on easier. Inch and roll it on....

    Wet wetsuits go on easier. Inch and roll it on. Never tug or pull. Slide, hence wetness making it easier. Roll off. Avoid stepping on it with your feet to pull off. Bend at waist and share your...
  12. Never cut your suit yourself. If you need cuffs...

    Never cut your suit yourself. If you need cuffs adjusted, bring it to a suit repair shop out in CA. It would likely cost $20 to shorten the legs. But just over the ankle sounds fine to me.

    74L for 165# is pretty good. That thing looks wide and think. A longer, narrower board would paddle easier but be less stable. So work out those shoulders and back and you should be fine.

    Parking is street parking. In town youíll have neighbors. Plenty of people here living in RVs. There are a few more secluded places north of town you can park overnight without hassle.

    I donít...

    A few spots to park nearby in Santa Cruz. Some in walking distance. Others short drive.

    I just got back in after 6 months off due to a shoulder dislocation. My ribs bruise for the first few times...

    ^^^ If you do buy a decent suit, and get up to Santa Cruz, shot me a PM. I'm recovering from a shoulder dislocation and slowly returning to the water. I'd be happy to show you around a bit and...

    Find a wetsuit on sale. Try a few on and pick one that fits well. I've ben surfing for decades and only once or twice have bought such a high end suit. Mostly it is bell and whistles, especially...
