shops will usually deduct your rental cost from the sale price.

HAVING A HARD TIME LOCATING A 4MM WETSUIT, WE ALSO RECOMMEND ASKING YOUR FRIENDS TO
BORROW OR BUY (OFTEN TIMES THEIR CHILD HAS OUTGROWN A SUIT), SEEKING TO BUY ONE USED ON
CRAIGSLIST OR FROM PAWN SHOPS or BUYING YOUR 4mm + WETSUIT ONLINE or FROM MORE POPULATED PLACES
& BEACH TOWNS LIKE SANTA CRUZ, SANTA BARBARA, LA, SAN DIEGO (On April 5, I ordered a Hotline wetsuit and
its taking 2 months to receive it)...

**THE ABSOLUTE ESSENTIAL KEY TO ENJOYABLE & SAFE YEAR-ROUND SURFING ON THE REDWOOD COAST IS OWNING A PROPER
WETSUIT. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO BUY A WETSUIT SO YOU WILL CONTINUE TO FLOAT AND FEEL WARM WHILE SURFING THE COLD, BUT
BEAUTIFUL WATERS OF THE NORTH COAST**

INDEPENDENT SURFING
RECOMMENDATIONS:
1)  check online wave and weather conditions and
surf on calm days
2)  spend time watching from the beach to
familiarize yourself
with the surf spot characteristics b4 paddling out
3)  don't surf popular or crowded surfspots (aka
the main peak at
Camel Rock) until your are able to really
manuever in the waves
(both paddling/duck diving and riding the waves)
because it
would be dangerous for yourself and others
4)  Chose surf spots that are protected from the
brunt of winter waves
& weather such as South Beach next to the jetty in
Crescent City
5) Only surf in conditions you feel safe and
comfortable in
