BA's Notes -

There are a few pockets of surf spots in El Centro [The stretch between Nuke The Seals Reef and Kob's is one of them] that still have relatively uncrowded waves -
"Why BA?"
- because the water is always polluted, the waves are always terrible, and the locals are incredibly hostile!

As bad as the waves are, they [the waves] get ridden by a few brave and most excellent surfers who are well on their way to becoming [they are young guys - their stories will only get better] classic characters.
AM 1 Includes: Reader Caption Contest Winner: "This must be the elusive layback head dip developed at the La Jolla Shores surfing academy!"

White House Rights

Just In - A way long time ago [in Surf Time] The Shores had a crew of locals who were - gasp - great surfers as well as good citizens - a few are still surfing - Reed Mayne at The White House [Stick displayed by Spawn of Reed (Pierce)]:

My knees are knocking -

According to every media outlet in the known world - the entire west coast of California is supposed to herald the arrival of the largest and most dangerous surf of all time

Guess I'll load-up my SUV and cruise the coast route with 50 million other surf idiots and act like I WANT to surf -


My wetsuit's ripped, the tide's too high, my board's at Roper's -

I got plenty more excuses why I won't go out.

Excuses aside - I did go out
