Santa Monica surf shop, ZJ Boarding House turns 30 years old today!

About ZJBH

Ever since our humble beginnings as a hole-in-the-wall surf shop back in 1988, ZJ Boarding House has been sharing its passion for Surfing and Skateboarding with the local Santa Monica community and beyond. As the store grew both physically and in inventory, the same levels of knowledge and passion were applied to Skateboarding and Surfing. Our passion for boards, customer service, and product knowledge continues to grow as we are entering our 30th year of business. We pass on our stoke and knowledge to our customers and strive to assist them in making the best decisions for new gear based on their budget and skill levels. We have a wide selection and cater to the whole family. Our selection for Ladies and Grommets is the best in the area.

We carry all kinds of gear, clothing and accessories from best brand names the industry has to offer. Surfboards, Skateboards, Bodyboards and Softboards line the walls of our store. Our Billabong and RVCA sister stores next door carry all the latest gear from those brands and have a huge selection of the finest apparel.

ZJ Boarding House is located just a block and a half from the beach in Santa Monica, proving grounds for Southern California’s Surf & Skate culture. We Surf and Skate everyday and share the stoke of our experiences with all that visit ZJ Boarding House.

We are looking forward to seeing you here

Issued: 1:30 PM PST Dec. 15, 2018 – National Weather Service ... High surf advisory in effect from 4 am Monday to 10 PM PST Tuesday...

... Beach hazards statement is cancelled...

The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued a high surf advisory, which is in effect from 4 am Monday to 10 PM PST Tuesday. The beach hazards statement has been cancelled.

* Surf... 6 to 10 foot surf with local sets to 12 feet can be expected across west facing beaches, peaking on Monday and Monday night.

* Impacts... there is an increased risk for ocean drowning. Strong rip currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Large breaking waves can cause injury... wash people off beaches and rocks... and capsize small boats near shore.
After high levels of enteroccocus bacteria found in the ocean water testing last week due to the heavy rains, Surfrider's Blue Water Task Force is pleased to report that the level of bacteria at Tower 15 and Tower 8 at Will Rogers State Beach were well under the accepted EPA minimum. Yew! Get out and enjoy some of this NW swell we’ve got on tap this weekend.

☝šŸ½PLEASE NOTE: if you are planning to surf in Malibu at breaks affected by the burn zone (between Point Mugu and Surfrider Beach) please use caution. If the surf smells smokey or has visibly dark sediment in the wave faces we recommend heading to the South Bay. We should have our results from UCLA next week that will give us a sense of the metal content at both Surfrider and Leo Carrillo, so stay tuned.

A powerful, long-period WNW swell will build into California and peak early next week. Areas north of Point Conception will be macking, while big-wave spots will be XXL. The swell is more selective for Southern California, although the regions well exposed to long-period WNW swell will be very solid.
In general, it should be more in the medium-to-strong range at breaks with decent exposure — although select spots that can pull in the strongest energy will be very solid.

This Saturday streets along Santa Monica and Venice beaches will be closed for the Santa Monica-Venice Christmas Run.
Sobering results from last week’s Blue Water Task Force team…water collected Wednesday morning at the 3 Santa Monica sites show extreme levels of enterococcus bacteria, literally off the charts. These harmful levels were present before Thursday’s downpour, which will have only served to exacerbate the situation. Similar results were found near the Palisades, at Will Rogers Beach. A reminder, 104 CFUs/100mL is considered the limit of “safe” levels to come in contact with.

Santa Monica Pier - 24,196+ CFUs/100mL
Pico Kenter Storm Drain - 400 CFUs/100mL
Lifeguard Tower 26 - 10,112 CFUs/100mL
Will Rogers Lifeguard Tower 8 - 581 CFUs/100mL
Will Rogers Lifeguard 15 - 10,112 CFUs/100mL

Please stay safe out there and be mindful of the risks of contaminated water, regardless of how clean it may look.
