    if you are totally new. If you surf anywhere other than cowells in santa cruz you will get told by someone where you should surf. Most of the paths leading to surf breaks have rules posted. Santa Cruz is no joke. And they have no problem getting in your face and telling you where you should be.

    Sandster takes the fight against Jersey coast to coast! Will he recruit the Californians? What does Christmas have in store for his arch nemesis?

    I have a photo of said signage at the entrance to one of the breaks also photos of 2 dudes getting washed across the base of the cliff at the same spot. Additionally I took a photo of a dude getting back fisted off a wave at the lane. Santa Cruz smells like there is a never ending skunk orgy happening all around you at all times.

    I can't figure out how to add pics to a post without them being attachments. The gaffer did it recently though.

    Alright so I am apparently not as new as y'all think. I have taken a lesson at Cowells it was lovely very swishy totally forgiving, spent a week in surf camp and surfed with friends a few times. That said I consider myself NEW, I have no problem with etiquette ( I am a 37 yr old girl!! no balls to get in the way) and have been well instructed in the don't piss people off show some respect side of surfing. Was hoping to find some other folks of a similar experience level to paddle with. Capitola was great on Friday, I have had some good times at Second Peak, Sewer and sharks as well. I don't own a GoPro sorry to disappoint. I should also clearly apologize for trying to make some new friends as I am clearly not cool enough for the likes of this blog. No worries, I will stick to the surf report from here out.

    Don't be discouraged by the response you got because at least you got one with valid info! Despite my random attempts to help people out, many of my own questions to folks here go unanswered. F*ck it. Different people, different moods = a wide array of responses from helpful to useless . The variety of response should be expected amid the wide array of surfers and schizophrenics here on SI.

    Instead of focussing on the negative, you should be thanking the people that attempted to steer you in the right direction. That is indeed uncool on your part. "Not cool enough for this blog"? Apparently you haven't read much here because you're plenty cool enough, trust me. It's a stoker you followed through and got some waves. I love surfing that entire area. Good times.

    Ps. 26th & 27th conflicts with a few days off a week and friends for the winter. In other words are you done in Santa Cruz now because the 27th has passed or are you there for the winter?

    I live 2hrs away and plan to be in SC a few times a month throughout the year. So my invite to potential friends is on going. I will likely be out again mid month.
