I hope Todd and Surfer Mag will not mind if I use his photo below [tglaser.com] short term, as course material for:

©®™BA's Rules For Surfing Success, Chapter 1, Page 1: ©®™PADDLING-OUT-101©®™

Hey Todd, if you or Surfer Mag object to my using your photo as a Public Service Announcement, please let me know: adaywithba@hotmail.com or adaywithba@gmail.com and I'll take it down right away

+++++++++++
Todd displays his wide range of photographic skills on line at: tglaser.com

Surfer Magazine on line: surfermag.com
+++++++++++

[I used to work at Surfer Mag when Pez was the publisher and I am very sensitive to copyright stuff]

[I'm pretty sure that more people than my mom and kids read the drivel I post on my website.]

[I'm equally sure that over the years I have given my on site paddling out lectures - ad nauseam - to more than my mom, kids and grand kids]

Just to keep it simple:

There is a guy paddling out in Todd's photo, not sure who it is, but he [the paddler] changed his paddling out course [even the most jackassed of you out there can see his change of direction] in order to give the surfer closest to him an unencumbered route for his ride.

THIS IS NOT A 2 FOOT WAVE AT LA JOLLA SHORES - IT'S A 50 FOOT WAVE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN!

The paddler in the photo did, what most of you will not do: HE CHANGED THE DIRECTION HE WAS PADDLING, and was willing TO TAKE A FIFTY FOOT WAVE ON THE HEAD IN ORDER TO STAY OUT OF THE WAY OF THE SURFER CATCHING - AND SOON TO BE RIDING - THE WAVE!!

Most of the collisions I see, and I surf in the La Jolla area almost every day, and have been doing so for about 60 years, are between a surfer riding the wave, and some surfer paddling out.

Usually, the paddler is unwilling to stop, and / or paddle away from the surfer, and head towards the breaking part of the wave - the paddler now is nothing more than a slalom buoy around [or over] which the surfer must navigate.

Yeah, you might take the breaking part of the wave on your head - but you're tied to your board - it ain't going nowhere - and someday - maybe - you'll be skilled enough to appreciate it when you're riding a wave, and someone is willing to "take it on the head" in order to stay out of your way.

"Hey BA, you yell at us in the water, now you're yelling at us digitally, ouch, you just love giving these lectures, don't you!"

[Please note that above lecture is not applicable to EVERY collision, or near collision in the line-up, just most of them]

Just in:

By popular demand: The Full Story of The Crash, err, The Clash of The Titans

David makes the first mistake - he rode the wave way too far - he is now in John's territory!

John - because of his incredible strength and wave acumen - is able to turn the board on to its rail

David - because of his incredible strength and wave acumen - is able to duck-dive his longboard

The combination of Titanic Strength and 100 years of Wave Acumen results in ZERO pain and ZERO dings

I don't know how many millions of $$ have been spent on the La Jolla Shores parking lot / drainage in the past few years -

Apparently it has not been enough because only Rube Goldberg could have come up with this solution the keeping the drain open:

By the way - when I disparage the French Drain process / result at The Shores parking lot, I am not knocking my French friends or their country!

French Drain process was pimped way back in the late 1800's by, according to Wikipedia, Henry Flagg French

a lawyer and Assistant U.S. Treasury Secretary from Concord, Massachusetts in his book Farm drainage...

I took more than 1100 photos - it's gonna take some time to upload more than 20 albums - whew!

Traditional BA disclosure, one of many: I used a couple of cameras, multiple memory cards - there is and will not be - any rhyme or reason for the sequencing of the albums

If you're looking for your photos - good luck!

BA' s Last Blast of BS

"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]"
