Welcome to a Day with BA - Home Page
"Yesterday is History - Tomorrow is a Mystery - And Today is a Gift..."
BA suggests that all fathers memorize the words to this song!
Believe it or not, I actually like some of the kids with whom I have to scrap for waves -BA
Director Greg - Sector Nine - Bergen is one of my favorites.

My son Eric is working on a project for a college class he is taking - somehow this project involves the San Diego Surf Ladies [how cool is that]BA
Anyway - I met Eric, Eric's co-project participants, and the San Diego Surf Ladies at a top secret surf spot in San Diego -
I have been trying for years to become a member of the SDSL, so far I'm a probationary member - I don't think I'll ever become a good enough surfer to achieve full membership.

Roper's work: Extra glass on tail | Extra glass on nose | Ready for launch
Picked up my new board from Joe Roper - Rent A CopBA
Shaped by Bob Mitsven, glassed by Team Roper -
It's too bad that the true craftsmen [the few that are still alive], spawned in a large part by the surfboard industry way back when I started surfing in the mid 50's, thru the 60's, 70's and 80's are rarely asked to showcase their skills.
I gotta ask, though, when's the last time you saw a board glassed with a resin tint, complete with resin pin stripes and a highly polished gloss coat - or better still - would you really care?[I certainly care, and applaud those few - past and present - masters of foam, glass and resin]
A bit windy today - tomorrow AM yeah baby!BA
Good surf [at least in my opinion]BA
Wonderful photography by Matt of Surf Inside dot Com
Good conditions [especially for early spring]
5 people in the line-up - all graduates of the local high school [La Jolla]
No fights - no eye gouging - no dunkings - no hair pulling - no cries of:"You can't tell me to get out of the water. Just because I've only been surfing for 3 days, I have as much right to surf here as you do! I'm calling my mommy, then I'm calling my attorney!"Makes a pretty darn good case for localism [enforced by hostile locals [JUST KIDDING!!] ]

Surf was good -I confirmed that my mental health was [almost] back [for me] to normal because:
My preferred parking space was available
I slid my fat butt into my wetsuit relatively easily [the suit had not shrunk too much]
No pain in the leg
Paddle out - no problemo
Caught two waves - didn't want to push it too much -
Came in - no problemo -
The Bird Rock | La Jolla Yuppie Stroller [right in the middle of the street] Pushing Babes didn't make me want to turn them [Yuppie BR - LJ Moms] in to Child Protective ServicesPhotos
The Fat Butted Bicycle Pack Tour Groups taking up both lanes of the streets didn't make my head asplode
The traffic circles in Bird Rock are a mere annoyance - not a reason to demand a refund on my taxes
