Generally, there are not many longboarders up in Northern California because there are little to no waves that are good for it. When Neil contacted me I was so stoked, but knowing he is a longboarder I was a little conflicted on where to go.


But then looking at the forecast, the beach break seemed like the spot to go. Turns out it was. 2-3 foot soft little peelers were coming in making conditions near perfect. Neil surfed perfectly, connecting most of the waves from the outside to the quicker inside section. I was so stoked that it all came together!
