...I've had some really good days at Sanddollar Beach. Small clean rights pealling just fine for my eggs and longboards....
Look at the set up....this is not a small wave spot....Buyer beware.....Ask Surf4fins about the quiver he surfed last year and you might understand........It's not San Onofre........We all have fun no matter what.......More food Mark.!...
Let's Fire Up The Grill !!!
Like Ray said you don't know what you have till you get there, it's been 4-5 feet to 18-20feet. But you can always count on a good time with good friends and lots of beer and food, you noticed how I put Beer first.
Can't wait Mark
If I were you, I'd travel light and cheap.
If you bring anything with you perhaps you can pack my board, I will pay the fees (but then I lose my excuse for a return trip, so this may require some soul searching).
I have a number of boards that you can use while you are here, D fin longboard, Hynson HII single fin, some hulls and some odd shorter boards.
Plus, once you get up to the campground, you'll find a ton more boards you can use...the SF/SB guys can set you up with equipment for the second leg and/or you can take one of mine all the way up with you and I can have a friend store it for me up there.
There are ample shops around here were you could pick up something used for your trip as well...
I can't believe I waited so long to check out this thread. Fortunately, a kind soul was nice enough to give me a heads up earlier and we were able to grab a site. The Matsuno family (Lillibel) will be joining us again this year so I can't wait to see what kind of beautiful boards Jeff will be bringing. We'll be in site #39 and promise to bring plenty of beer. I'll also bring a huge pot of chorizo chili beans so first come, first served. Will also bring a couple of my goofy shortboards, items for trade and hopefully, a new SrPato 8'6" gun. Also included is a used SrPato 6' round pin quad for the big boys.( Anyone over 200 lbs.) So if you have anything for trade, let me know.
Balsa-----------I had to try. About bringing boards though; I'll have several with me and others will too. So i'm sure you could use one while you are here. If you bring one you may be able to sell it here before you leave. Otherwise you could consign it in a shop and save yourself the air freight back. I know of a shop in Santa Cruz. Lowel
That which can be assorted without evidence was read in an illegal magazine.
Lowel, thanks for the offer and infos. I want to thank you all, BTW, as I've received a huge number of PMs from many people, all offering to lend me boards during my trip. This is very much appreciated and of course I will be glad to try numerous boards when I'm there but I want to bring a few boards of mine for you to try, too.
My daughter checks in to Stanford the week before, and I'll probably go over. I'd be there if the timing was better, but I'd have to be in CA longer than I can afford to.
What's the water temp over there?
"What's the water temp over there?"
AHAAHAAHAAAA! low to mid 50s?
DANG! you guys snatched up all the spots! ha ha ha...
first come first served it is... he Tim, can you PM me your # please.
all selfishness and personal agenda aside, you should factor in the the notion that there is a distinct chance that we get skunked for surf (at plaskett).
no one has mentioned this yet...I surfed twice last year and it was only out of sheer grit (and to try to keep up with Melville and LeeV)
the year before was gorgeous every day...the year before that they had rain the entire weekend...the year before that...
plus, factor in murphy's law here:
if you bring boards, there will be no surf
if you do not bring boards, the surf will be EPIC
