Santa Cruz 9/10/11 FYI

Post by Caliskim » Sat Sep 10, 2011 8:17 pm

I went to SC today to skim it up, but the waves and beaches were not as good as I was expecting. I checked both the West and East side and did not find much for skimming. I skimmed at 26th Ave. and the Beach was flat on the north end, a little Steeper on the South. The waves were far out even at high tide. 38th was flat when I checked around 11:45, and tide was too high for Stickton. So overall SC is not great for skimboarding right now, and 26th ave. is losing some of its slope. :(

^It is fine. It put a weird shelf way up on the beach on the south end, but a new big slope has already developed below it. I actually think it's setup better now because the slope is kind of split up into separate mounds down the beach making the waves peakier, rather than just one long walled up line as it's kind of been most of the summer with it just having the same slope all the way down the beach.

All I can say is that I have been looking for good surf during the south and didnt have any luck...I heard 26th was going off at 12ft pealing waves on sets on thursday of the big south, I checked it on friday am and it didnt look good for either surf or skim, although tide was kinda low...

I have yet to skim 26th but I suck too much for now, so I wont bother with crowds...

Oh okay thanks square. It is usually better/steeper around the rocks anyways. Much smaller beach area though :/
