BA


As much as I hate to see my friends ®™Caught Inside©™® it was great to finally see some waves at The Shores -

- Whew -

It's about time - I was thinking we wouldn't see White House Rights or Archie's Lefts until November!

AM Photos The Shores 1 Include --->

One of my favorite characters: The Schnead // John defies death as he stands on the only Fire Coral Reef in North America

BA's Notes -
Once in a while, when, after multiple visits to my neighborhood shrink / witch doctor I continue to think I'm falling into an old person's funk, I'll watch Judge Judy, The People's Court, Jerry Springer, The Maury Show, etc.

AND

Then, usually I snap out of it.

HOWEVER

When the "reality shows" don't fix me, I'll go to my therapist of last resort, Surfer Mag on line - a sure cure to ensure I'll feel better about who and what I am.

In spite of the 99% bs on the mag's forum, once in while there are some pretty cool nuggets on the forum, and this one grabbed my attention:

Are You a Surfer?? from the online forum on Surfer Mag Dot Com

I guess I'm lucky to have started my surfing career in the 1950's, so by the time I settled into the married life and kid raising mode in the late 60's, I had accomplished all of the requirements [and many requirements not listed] to be a surfer.

I would venture a guess that it was a lot easier for me - back then - to meet the standards, than if I had to meet the requirements today.

Jack, a world champion 1/2 man surfer, found the waves here so difficult to ride, he became a flat man //


Our resident dentist, Grey Cunningham, compared today's surf to a day in Indo.

If you surf - or even if you don't - and you are interested in a world class collection [certainly more interesting than the World's Largest Ball of Twine]
you gotta go to Bird's Surf Shed!

I had the privilege of attending a slide show this evening - what a great venue - what a treasure trove of surf stuff and great surf stars!

There ain't another place like this in our universe!

Boy, did I learn the hard way - Never - Never back out of wave when the hostile locals are in the water -
I was told to go back to The Shores, after I was called a little old lady

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]"
