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?
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.
