You wouldn't expect anything less for a surf shop in Carlsbad, California. These guys live up to the standard with a large selection of quality boards at pretty reasonable prices. They have friendly and knowledgeable staff, and they can help you find the right board whether you're only a beginner or Laird Hamilton. I myself am only a beginner but found my experience there very satisfying and am quiet pleased with the board I purchased there. Overall, I would highly recommend this surf shop for the quality of their merchandise, reasonable pricing, and professional sales staff.
