Back in March our team rider, Jonah Pierce, starting riding South Coast boards. After meeting with our shaper, Dan, two boards were custom made for Jonah, based on what he was looking for. In the blog post below, read what Jonah had to say about the new South Coast surfboards!
Salty Crew is a San Diego based brand that is quickly gaining attention from coast to coast! The goal is to focus on the basics and get back to a time when surfing, fishing, diving and sailing was top priority!
The “About Us” statement on the Salty Crew website so perfectly sums up what they are about, we thought it would be best to share it in it’s entirety.

The past two weekends I had a Surfing America Prime event at Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz and a Volcom event at Pismo Beach. The waves in Santa Cruz were big; big wave surfer Peter Mel was actually out there as water patrol surfing 15 foot waves on a 9’6 gun at the middle peak. the water was really cold, but i was warm in my 5:4:3 hooded Cypher wetsuit and neo-goo booties from Quiksilver. To get out into the water I had to jump off a rock about six feet high and there were eight foot waves breaking on it, with non-stop set waves coming through. I had a board that was too small and was really slidey, but luckily I still got 9th in the Prime event. For the Pismo contest the waves were really walled and it was super hard to pick a good one, so unfortunately I lost in the semi- finals. Although I lost earlier than I wanted, I still had a great time at the event hanging out with my friends from there, and getting to see Nate Tyler! Hopefully I will do better next time in the Prime event at Upper Trestles next month.
