|Welcome to a Day with BA - February 2011|
"Yesterday is History - Tomorrow is a Mystery - And Today is a Gift..."
Been trying - with my normal lack of competence - to learn the art of video editing - uploading etc.BA
- OUCH -
For a few years, 1960 - 1962 I shot movies with my Kodak 8mm movie camera - no telephoto - nothing - literally, point and shoot movies.
Took the movies in 1969, my third trip to Maui - This time accompanied by Cathy and 3 month old Brian -
The video is from October of 1969 - The start of the legendary surf of the winter of 1969 - 1970
The Bay 1969
The video below is from some movies I took from the water in 1961.
Put the camera into a plastic bag and sat in the channel - somehow made it in and out without losing the camera.=======
The Rock 1961"Hey BA where's the music?"You gotta be kidding me!
Upload video with a sound track???
Ain't gonna happen!
Pretty crowded at The Rock, even in the early sixties - check out ~ 1:04 or so into the video - 3 guys on the wave - then there were two, thanks to a world class belly flop.
By the way, the last 30 seconds or so are from 1969, Haleakala sunrise, and the left at the very end is the Lahaina Breakwater.
North Boomer 1961 -
Starring Andy Jones, Jerry Stirnkorb, John Mikkelsen, and a supporting cast of hundreds
North Boomer Notes - I thought I had added some sort of music to the Boomer Video <FAIL>
It used to be legal to board surf both North and South Boomer until maybe 1962??

AM Photos 2 Include: Margaret continues her reign as Queen of Archie's Lefts | Flipper practices headstands | Just what we need, fish in the lineup
Once in a while, even I - gasp - get my emotions tugged!BA
I, like every other person to have ever lived, have come upon lottsa forks in the road - some decisions - in retrospect - did not turn out as well as expected
We're still here - gotta love the here and now [and south winds, White House Rights, Buoy Lefts and even rainbows!]

This summer may be more aggravating than last...BA
Jeremy was nursing a nagging injury last summer - he went right - I went left - obviously he's 100% now [photo below] Ouch - another backsider going left!
AND - some guy from Boston, MA has the Lot Crew convinced he's a LJ local - I ain't so easily convinced!
AND - Jeremy goes left, and the East Coaster mocks me!

My lectures regarding melanoma and life expectancy sometimes are effective [depending upon the audience] sometimes not [depending upon the audience]
Just think about this if you want to surf as long as I have, and you are in denial that it could happen to you - I don't make this stuff up:
Treatment success depends on many factors, including the patient's general health and whether the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes or other organs.
If caught early, some melanomas can be cured. Deeper tumors are more likely to come back. If the skin cancer is deeper than 4 mm or the lymph nodes have cancer, there is a high risk of the cancer spreading to other tissues and organs. If the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes, there is a greater chance that the melanoma will come back.For patients with melanoma that has spread beyond the skin and nearby lymph nodes to other organs, treatment is more difficult. At this point, melanoma is usually not curable."
BAAM Photos Include: Dr. Dale | Flipper Sighting | Straight Off cuts down on decision making [Left or Right]
If I were a better Photo-Eddie, the photo below probably would have been a pretty cool one -
The lump on the face the guy is riding has to be at least 3-5 feet high, then he's gonna drop into the real wave -
If I were riding that wave, my exit would have been long in process -
This guy was pretty darn good - and by the way, even though you may thinking the location was Tourmaline, it ain't.

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]"
