Just a bunch of out of focus over / under exposed photos in the albums below -

Please don't waste your valuable time looking at the photos!

I can tell you for sure - I think I have a lot more in common with Team Whomp [although I'm sure THEY hate me to say this] than I have in common with "Team Old Guys Rule"

BA's Liner Notes -
The sheer stupidity of some people is astonishing to me - maybe it's not stupidity??

Maybe it's simply a total lack of awareness of one's environment?

Sometimes I feel like some sort of wildlife Photo-Eddy in the wild - am I supposed to rescue the lion's prey before the lion can kill it, or do I let nature take its course?

The day started out at 5:30 AM - top secret surf spot called LJ Shores - kindda like an early spring day - low tide - south wind - my favorite surf conditions in the entire world -

THEN - in the late afternoon:

The adventure started to take a very ugly turn - Rescue 911

First, Booger Dude washed in - kindda funny 'cause he's a young guy - and he's a Booger - he did just fine -


THEN - the girl came ashore, in a terrible place on the beach

I spotted her and her boyfriend way out in the kelp - How they got out there - who knows - all I know is that when they washed in - the girl - for a few seconds - was trapped in the cut-out in Forester Thom's Rock -

If she had come ashore during a time with a larger set of waves, with a number of waves in the set, she could have been seriously hurt.

She was VERY lucky this time!

Hopefully, both she and her boyfriend learned a valuable lesson, and maybe, just maybe, they'll pay more attention to their surroundings before they repeat their adventure in another venue - and maybe, just maybe, they'll help to educate others??

BA's Liner Notes 2:
JUST IN from one of my co-workers - [Note to my bosses - I am NOT the "guy" who took the photo - and I was NOT surfing this morning!]

BA sez:
Sting rays are just another hazard in the line-up in La Jolla's dangerous waters!

Another good reason to find another pastime other than surfing in La Jolla.

There is a bright side to my friend's up close and personal sting ray encounter, at least for me: one less surfer - if only temporarily - in La Jolla's line-up. JUST KIDDING!!??
My co-worker sez:
"For obvious reasons, I will not be at work today.  

The 'soak' picture was taken by this guy that I surf with sometimes – he said he was going to post this pic on his blog and make up some story that I was crying like a girl…"



sting ray soaker

"After it happened, I walked over to the showers to shower myself and my board off, then I walked over to the lifeguard tower where I soaked for ~20 minutes in hot water.  

This was obviously not long enough as when I was driving my sting-ray-stung-@$$ to work, the dulling pain was going up my leg, at which point I decided to go to Urgent Care to make sure no barbs were stuck in me…"

BA's Liner Notes - No animals [I don't think] were injured in the filming of this docudrama.

Mowry Major and I were talking about the kids / groms / pups in the whomp - Mowry Minor was one of them [the pups]

We [Mowry Major and I] compared notes about how we hate coming in thru the high tide whomp-

My solution: Take the leash off, launch board towards shore, hope it [the board] misses the rocks, hope I get in without breaking my neck or my back [again]

Water Pups love the whomp - Water Dogs hate the whomp!

BA's Liner Notes - [When I met Emery]

How much impact will Emery's murder have on his peers and the younger kids who admired his surfing so much?

Who knows?

What will today's groms be doing 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50 years from now?


[I've only been surfing in La Jolla since 1953 or so]

How many will still be surfing?

How many will remember the importance of today?

Who will be around twenty years from now to tell the groms how Emery's Lefts got its name?

I'm pretty sure that I'm a better citizen than my father was, I know that my own kids are much better citizens than I am / will ever be.

Let's hope that each generation does better than the one before it.

BA's Disclaimers - as usual:

I'm posting as many photos as possible - if there are any that are offensive to anyone, etc. please let me know and I'll delete it / them.

Good luck sorting thru these albums of out of focus under / over exposed photos - I already have a headache and crossed-eyes...

Bear in mind that the photos in these albums are 1/3 size and low resolution -

BA's Liner Notes -
Randy Lind is one heck of a surfer - just to keep things in perspective: Randy binds his ankles in order to make surfing a bit more challenging and to allow slightly less gifted members of his peer group - Keil Miller [just kidding!!] to catch an occasional wave - AND - adding insult to injury, as shown below, he [Randy] doesn't even need a surfboard in order to maintain his status as the Amazing Randy.
