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!

In my world of La Jolla surfing, the photo below illustrates almost everything that is right, <Lucas' surfing ability combined with his being an all around nice guy>, and wrong, <donkeys in the lineup> with contemporary surfing in La Jolla...and probably everywhere else in the known surf world...

Luckily for flotsam surfer, Lucas possesses a professional's level of surfing skills, and a serious collision was avoided -
Flotsam Kook has no clue how close he came to being the subjects of a 911 call!

Lucas

Guy paddles out, clogs the lineup - gotta wonder, since it appears the flotsam donkey doesn't know how to paddle - how he made it out as far as he did.

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]"
