Hi Folks,

Tide will be lowest at 8:18am. Too early to predict the surf conditions, but if all goes well we look forward to seeing you in the water. We will be surfing at Cowells Beach and will meet in the parking lot of Cowells Surf Shop.

It can get crowded out there but everyone is pretty chill since most people are out there trying to learn. Just try to always hold on to your board so it doesn't become dangerous to other surfers. Besides it floats a lot better than you do! Bring your surf board, wetsuit, sun screen, towel, etc. If you need to rent a board and/or wet suit you can do so at Cowells Surf Shop or at the rental center on the beach. Cost is around $35-$40. If you do have to rent, please get there a little early so you can get the rental sorted out and put on your wetsuit ahead of time.

You can find parking in one of the residential areas above the Cowells Stairs, metered spots along Pacific Ave., or hourly parking by the turf soccer field. Or parking on the wharf is $3/hour. Surf shop also offers all-day parking for $20-$25 but their lot often fills up before 10am on summer weekends. Make sure you leave any valuables locked in your car trunk.

If you are on the waitlist, you can still come surf with us but I will focus coaching and pushing on beginners on the RSVP "Going" list. If I know you are experienced, I might move you to the Waitlist to make room for beginners, but you should still come surf!
