Ola Amigos!
Just wanted to introduce my self.  

I'm a surfer who usually MD in the summer because the waves go flat where I live in Santa Barbara.

This summer I got an Equinox 800 and have been pretty stoked using around town and on the beaches.

I've found some cool stuff.  The oldest coin is a 1890 Indian head penny in a vacant lot downtown Santa Barbara.

And a nice vintage silver ring missing the center diamond but has two diamonds on each of the sides. 

Anyways I never see anyone MD in Santa Barbara and just wanted to say Hi!

Thanks

History Surfer

Welcome aboard History Surfer.  Check out the Equinox forum and you will find a few Cali natives over there.  I grew up in San Diego but live in Virginia now.  Enjoy that detector, it is a great one.

Welcome History Surfer from SoCal. Paddled into few myself. When I was in the line up, I would see the older guys (dudes, lol!) on the sand MDing. Back then I thought to myself, when I get old and can no longer surf, I’m going to try metal detecting. Boy did old come fast! Lol!

May you find the gold and the “Green Room” many times over. Good luck!

Haha! I used to never MD at the beach because i was always surfing! But now I'll check the waves and the MD conditions. Always looking for treasure!

I would think Santa Barbara would have a lot of sensitive historical sites you would have to watch out for when out when hunting.  Those pesky mission dudes and Indian sites are heavy around there.  Good Luck!, and welcome.  GaryC/Oregon Coast
