Surfing radio waves

Congrats to KZSC listener Phillip from Vallejo! Phillip was surfing the radio waves and heard about the opportunity to own an awesome surf board and support student-run community radio and dropped in for an epic ride. KZSC is grateful to the Santa Cruz Boardbuilders Guild on the Westside of Santa Cruz for supporting locally-grown radio. Phillip's new 9'2" long board was hand-shaped  by Jefferey Devine and glassed by the talented and dedicated craftsmen of the Guild.
