I am currently in South Carolina, but I will be moving to Lompoc area in eight months. I was wondering if longboards do well out there? I ride a 9'8'' and I don't plan on buying anything new. Also how cold does the water get?

Moving out west
Jalama is one of the better breaks in Central Cal. I think you'll have a lot of fun there.

moving to lompoc-nice!
you will have a great time as the waves will be MUCH more consistent and powerful than you've seen in SC
plenty of longboards in cali. hope you get to visit Jalama (that's pronounced Ha-lama) as well as all the fun breaks around point conception north the sanluis obispo.
yep the water gets chilly-4/3+booties and likely a hood in the winter
have fun searching the cali coast-so lucky

When you get here
Remember to take some time to go up and down the coast. Hwy 1 is a great drive and you can find some sick little spots along the way. But be sure to look out for some nasty locals from time to time. Leadbetter in Santa Barbara is a good longboarding spot when swells are right. Have fun.
