Today was beat down paddle out death at The Shores - I almost gave up after a 45 minute pounding at the lifeguard tower

- BUT -

I watched this very petite premed student - surfette execute a dry hair paddle out - right in front of the bathhouse!

I sucked in my gut - called on my last bit of testosterone - I could not be denied - I did make it out finally [at The Boat Launch]
"Hey BA, where are the water photos proving you actually did make it out?"

BA's Notes - [Hyperbole - not to be taken seriously]
Well, another day, another dollar earned as the Beach Master, err, Beach Marshall, for today's LJ Shores Surfing Association's Menehune Contest.

Oops, I forgot, I didn't pick up my paycheck - I think I was fired before noon - I guess a surf mom complained to the big shots that I called her darling son a jackass, simply because he continued to surf in the middle of the contest area - and - making matters worse - I didn't even unleash an F-Bomb, which I usually reserve for the WindanSea Surf Club's Menehune Contest.

Oh well, the pay wasn't actually that good [volunteer labor] and they ran out of t-shirts my size.

Maybe, as suggested by Harold Reid of the WSC, if I changed my diet, perhaps my angst could be mitigated by finding my happy place on the beach?

BA' s Last Blast of BS is:

"For me, I'd rather be an old 1/2 man still surfing South Wind Shores [this 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]"
