Summer is in full swing here in the County formerly dominated by Citrus Groves. Everyone is stoked on just about everything anybody can possibly get stoked on. Looking for a little direction ourselves we turned to longtime surfboard shaper Jeff "Doc" Lausch and had him write us up some summertime Doctor's Orders. Here's what he prescribed all Juicers to do this summer.

Doctor's Orders … 10 Things You Gotta Do This Summer!

by Jeff "Doc" Lausch

1. Take a surf/camp trip. (This goes for at least twice a year…. mandatory.)
2. Build a quiver with the goal of having a board for every conceivable condition.
3. Switch up your fins before you give up on a board … the magic combination could be one set away.
4. Get a board with five fin boxes and try every combination.
5. Give a surf lesson… share the stoke.
6. Keep your gills wet. The older you get the more important this becomes.
7. Get a board shorter than you think you can ride.
8. Learn (and know) your volume number.
9. Keep a record of your board’s dimensions and notes on its performance. Your shaper is way too busy to do it for you!
10. If you have (or ever had) a magic board, let your shaper know about it. You already tip a waitress for bringing you a drink from the bar, right? Well, your shaper put his blood, sweat, heart and soul into making your dream ride, and a six-pack is always a nice gesture… just sayin’.

Stay tuned for Doc's '10 Things You Gotta Do In Autumn' coming this Fall….
