20 years ago I started BOARDZ.COM as a board sports Webzine. There was nothing quite like it at the time. Kind of like a blog before there were blogs, but the site also informed, entertained and sold stuff. Our team was small and we had some great times sharing our bliss for riding. We entertained and informed utilizing the technology of the time.

Somehow the act of riding does something to riders that often brings some level of enlightenment; this resonates across all action sports and healthy lifestyles. Sharing the stoke is core to BOARDZ.COM.

July just flies by with the long summer days and some epic swells. The record warm waters and abundance of swell events may not bode well for the environment, but we are living the surfers dream.

Last part of the month the trend had pretty small waves on tap. It was interesting that the water turned a turquoise color in the Santa Cruz and the entire Monterey Bay; thanks to a coccolithophores bloom.

The weather has been a broken record lately with cool temperatures and gusty afternoon WNW winds. Inconsistent SSW swell and WNW wind swell energy will continue to provide most of the surf as WNW swells wane in the forecast period. There will be some fresh SW swell mid-week, but will be inconsistent in town. There are more options to be found North and South along our coast line that see the WNW wind swell activity.

The days are getting longer very quickly this time of year. The increase in solar energy usually kicks off a few last blasts of winter for the California coast. Our weather has not been usual for the last few years.  This is creating a lack of storms heading our way to generate swell.  In fact, the South Pacific is currently more active than the North Pacific, so we will see more  SSW swells than WNW for the next week or so.  Waves are knee to Chest high at the top spots in Santa Cruz and waist to head high at exposed beaches. The trend will be smaller until Thursday when we get a bump in WNW mid-period energy. Some small scale SSW swells will be on tap for next weekend.
