Surfed The Shores and then - GASP - I gathered the nerve to test my limited skills at a more advanced surf spot -

I surfed the internet and discovered: Top Secret Reef

=====================

"BA - BA...We thought that the SUPers at The Shores equated you with the devil - are you getting soft in your old age?"

"Photos of a Meerkat????"


My reply:

"If all the La Jolla Shores SUPers could surf [on a surfboard] as well as Gail, Mitch, Katie, Ricky, and a few others, my blood pressure would probably stay within the 'slightly elevated' range.

In my world, a good surfer is a good surfer, a beginner is a beginner, and a kook is a kook.

There was a time in my surf life, when I would rather surf by myself than share the lineup with anyone!

As long as the beginners respect my 150 yard radius of death - I can live with that.

If kooks respect my 150 mile radius of death - we can live with that.

If one has to ask the definition of a kook, and what the difference is between a beginner and a kook, I'm sure at any beach, the question will be answered in a variety of methods, and hopefully, relatively painlessly."

BA
Tom "Boomer [the body surfing beach, not a demographic]" Keener and I had the pleasure of enjoying a great dinner with New Jersey Reef Mikey and his wonderful family.

We ate at the La Jolla Shores Hotel and I told Mike that, when I was a kid, that where we are sitting in the restaurant, used to be a parking lot where the commercial fishermen would spread out and repair their nets.

Kindda like the 3rd iteration of a 1970 song some may remember:

"They paved paradise and put up a parkin' lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swingin' hot spot"

From paradise --> to a parking lot used by fisherman ---> to the hotel

Ever since we were attacked by a Mutant Pelican, I have been worried that the genetic makeup of the MPs may be so altered, that the spawn of the spawn, of the spawn, could become hunters of warm blooded prey - photo below proves my point!

AM Photos 1 Include --->

Result of Mutant Pelican attack // Josh // Randy B on a White House Right [the lineup was abuzz after we witnessed Randy's left bomb at Archie's]

AM Photos 2 Include --->

I figger that since many of the guys in the lineup [surf that is] may be 50 years younger than I am,
It is of the most high importance that I become an expert on Elder Abuse

WHEW!

Pretty sizable today - luckily for me, caught a couple of little baby waves and went in, err, washed in.

Interesting Wave Height Graph - If you live close to SIO you got it today

I had the legitimate excuse of having to go to work - double whew -

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]"
