I heard the locals were eating their own today at a top secret surf spot in Uptown La Jolla.

I'm easily intimidated by the reefs' hostile locals - I'm sticking to The Shores, where I'll have plenty of backup in case...

Luckily for me and my mom [she's the only other visitor I get to this web site full of junkola] about 50% of the photos are even sort of acceptable, and of these, 50% are barely worth uploading, but since I don't have anything else to do....

If one wanted to compare / contrast the "public image" of the surfing lifestyle, attending Sacred Craft and the ASR Show should be mandatory.

Upstairs - Sacred Craft - full of surfboards - legends - kids - stoke - surfboards and accessories being sold directly to the end users of the products

Downstairs - ASR - no activity - lottsa noise - bunch of tattooed young men and women pimping all sorts of crapola to the few retail stores who still pay their bills

BA
I don't keep up with the latest surf industry crapola - I like my boards / shapers / wetsuits etc.
Who's in - Who's out - don't care!
These guys used negative comments about their boards to line one of the walls of their booth at Sacred Craft - most creative display at the show.
Don't know anything about their boards, but, so what...

BA's Notes -
Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good!

My friend Phil Swink, another long time La Jolla Shores local, along with Scot and Teddy The Plumber, was chased out of La Jolla Shores a couple of weeks ago by the mutant stingrays.

He migrated to Tourmaline - he gives Wind**Sea a very wide berth.

Anyway, I was lucky to snap a photo of Phil on a death defying wave at Tourmo North.


Phil Swink

When Phil came in, instead of raving about the wave he had just ridden, he was almost in tears - he appeared to be devastated.

I said: "Hey Phil, I think I got a photo of your on that huge wave - I bet you're happy you survived!"

Phil said: "That wave was the most gnarly wave I've ever ridden, but on the take-off, the lip ripped my wedding band off.

What am I gonna tell Tif?"

I had no answer.

Happy Ending


I received a call from Jon Boland, another hard core La Jolla Shores local, and he said he had just dropped off, at El Pescador,



a load of rockcod he had captured bare handed at Tourmaline.

He said one of the fish apparently had swallowed something, and thought I might be interested in taking a photo of "it."



I dug thru the still dangerous jaws of the rockcod and found a wedding band - matching the description of Phil's lost ring.

I called Phil, and happily, the lord of the ring and finger have been connected again.

You may think you are a bit player in a commercial - take your props back to the dump where you live - We're tired of picking up after you!

The water has been pretty cold - in fact way cold - in the photo below Harold describes the size of the bass he is raising if it were not for the cold water shrinkage:

Just to get even, because I dared to be in the water at the same time as Harold and his gang of hostile locals, Harold took dead aim at me:

BA's Notes -
Global Warming, created by George Bush, may have claimed another victim!

In the words of the very polite and gentle locals at La Jolla Shores: "BA, BA some really tan, and mean guy from the Wind**Sea area has been picking on us lately!"

"We are terrified of him, when the giant close-outs catch us at Archie's he yells at us to GO!"

"We don't have his bravado nor his surfing skills, but now, we ALMOST feel a bit sorry for him, word is he's caught the deadly Global Warming disease of elephantiasis."

"Have you seen him lately, have you taken a photo?"

BA' s Last Blast of BS

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