I dont know the current conditions, but i really like to skim 38th- Medium rising to high, or just high tide. Really good conditions with either stomach, chest, shoulder, or head high.

First half is 26th, second half is 38th. the swell was lightweight small-waist to stomach

Skim was shit shit shit. I checked 26th, 36th, 3rd, and a few more beaches today and they all sucked. All of the beaches were flat and the waves were not pushing at all high tide or low tide made no difference it was all bad. So if any of you all are think of comming up for the skim don't. But Santa Cruz is still nice and there was plenty more to do than skim. So not a total waist. Also as a side note the oneall cold water classic is happing this week so I go to see some pro airfare out in the water practicing. Prity cool

maybe but i checked it all earlier in the morring and then in the afternoon and then went out at high. but you never know i could have missed it but all that that means is that i will have to come back down to check it out again. im not giving up on SC just yet but i definitely had a bad session.

best part of santa cruz is that it doesn't matter what the tide is like, at least one spot there will have decent shorebreak at any given time of the day. you just didn't look hard enough.
Can I come home yet?

Theres plenty in SC right now most if not all the summer beaches are gone but if you look hard enough you'll find some great waves. and if that fails you take the 15mins to get to Mosslanding. No one really skims Moss but I can assure you there are waves. PM me and I'll help you

Disagreeeeeed.

There is no skim right now worth even talking about. Panthers? maybe. Moss, maybe. Carmel River, maybe...I barely even believe SC Liner got something up north....Even moes is trash. :D

Not a personal account. From what a friend told me, 38th was pretty blown out at high tide and is almost impossible to access the beach going and leaving at high tide. 26th was too far out and not much slope.

Any feedback from some locals on any other spots in SC?
I know something has got to be working :?:

i guess it's worth a shot to keep trying, but traditionally sc loc's do not post conditions on here or any other mb i'm aware of. 95% of the skim spots in sc are crowd sensitive, so it would not make sense to let more people know what's working.

I check the North side Sunday and it was crap everywhere.
I havent heard of any skim in town, winter is pretty much hit and miss in town unless you know where and when to look in Tola. Wink wink.
