A bit of history - from Mac Meda

More Boring Stuff: BA's Surf Turf Tours | Working on: "The Book of BA's Dribble and Drivel©" |

Terrible videos from a collection of terrible BA 8mm movies:

H-Bay 1969 | 1960 La Jolla Shores - Pat Manley's Club House  |  Mussel Rock, from the water 1961 | PB Surf Shop and "The Fence" 1970 | North Boomer 1961

======

Below are 4 of more than 50,000 photos I have archived, err, collected.

I think that "archived" implies some sort of ability to retrieve the contents [Google Search???]

{I can barely find a matching pair of socks in one dresser drawer, find an archived / collected photo on my website - hah}

===========

Luckily for me, I have collected a few photos taken by real photographers, some of which are below and are also throughout my Day With BA website.

I'm stoked that they have allowed me to use their photos...

Thank you - Thank you for your courtesy!

Jeff Divine took this photo of me in Baja ~ 1969 when I was doing my best to adhere to "Follow the Curl Line"
My board was a really cool Larry Strada gun, about 18.5" wide by about 7' long.

Thank you Jeff - sorry my photo storage techniques and post processing does not do justice to your great photography!

[by the way 1, Corky Carroll in 1967, said this about a photo of Jock Sutherland in Surfer Mag "...moves up and down and surfs both sides of the curl line, in contrast to the "old timers" who positioned themselves in the curl (on the curl line) and rode away from the break"]

[by the way 2, to this day, in my surf world, just about number one at the top of my list of annoying in the water behavior is longboard kooks - note kooks - not beginners - racing for the shoulder]

[by the way 3, I probably should not even ask why, but why would any surfer who has progressed past beginner status, want to miss the fun of staying in the curl, and possibly - gasp - getting barrelled]

This photo was taken when I first began kneeboarding, and I'm enjoying, more and more, doing something I said I would NEVER do!

Bill Andrews Not a La Jolla Surfing Photo

When I was a kid growing up in La Jolla, if my mother or grandmother had seen me walking / running / biking / skateboarding
down the middle of a street in La Jolla...

[I turned 18 in 1962 - after that, my parents would take my threats of running away from home a bit more seriously!]

...I would have received a head-slap which would have knocked me down
Retribution for idiot behavior, whether on land or in the water, was instant!

BA's Notes -

First things first:

In the following photos: AA 1 - AA 4, AKA Accident Avoidance 101, if you're the guy who paddled into the surfer riding the wave, and compounded the error with a board ditch, and you know me <or I know you> sorry if I've offended you with my comments below, I'll be back in the water in about 10 days, then you can punch me!

Please note - the only reason there was no carnage on the wave, was because the surfer is very good, and exhibited the skill level necessary to avoid the ditcher's board.
If I don't know you, and because you exhibited such a level of kookdom, maybe you should learn to surf somewhere else, and come back to La Jolla's Reefs in about 10 years.

Bill Andrews La Jolla Surfing Photo :

Before we had driver's licenses we wanted to surf bigger waves on the south swell days - we could see the backs of the waves about a 1/2 mile north of Scripps Pier

When we attended La Jolla High it as also a Junior High, grades 7 - 12 [La Jolla Jr. - Sr. High School] and for a couple of years we would walk down Nautilus Street before first period

{We had no physical way, nor the skills to surf the uptown, highly localized La Jolla reefs}

More than 50 years ago, I wonder why we made the trek to Black's, lugging 30 - 40 pound boards over / around the rocks at Scripps?

Attention kooks, some of whom happen to be my [semi] friends
If a surfer as skilled as Johnny looks before he takes off, don't you think you should follow his example?
A bit of respect and common sense just might help you if you EVER decide to surf somewhere else other than The Shores

Just like all of us, a couple of steps forward, 1/2 step backward :
In my opinion, we are in good hands with this generation of La Jolla surfers / citizens!

There was a time, not too long ago, that even attempting to ride this wave might send one to Doc Matson's Bluffside Emergency Room

Going thru archives:
Way, way back, there was a gang of young guys, home-based primarily at The Cliffs, who would come to Black's.

A number of these guys were kneeboarders, outstanding surfers by the way, but they were still "Half Men"

They received a lot of crapola from us, and I remember very well adding kneeboarding to my list of "I'll never..."

My I'll never list included: ...Ride a foam board, ...wear a wetsuit, ...use a leash and so on.

All I can say is that my longboard surfing was never that good, but I sure am having a lot of fun doing something I said I would never do so many years ago: 1/2 manning it!
This photo was taken when I first began kneeboarding, and I'm enjoying, more and more, doing something I said I would NEVER do!



BA' s Last Blast of BS:

"For me, I'd rather be an old 1/2 man still surfing South Wind Shores [below photos was a great day], the LJ Reefs and Black's,
than an old whole man surfing Tourmaline.
[No offence to old men and my friends at Tourmo]"
