It????

"BA - BA, did you study English with Bill Clinton?"

My answer:

In my world, it as all but one of the surfers above demonstrate, means they have learned how to end their ride with a kick-out.

Not only is the kick-out a necessary skill which all surfers must master, a well executed kick-out looks pretty darn cool!

[Even I can jump off my board and endanger anyone within leash range]

Just because one is tethered to their board, the use of the leash should be the last resort, not first response to ending their ride

In other words, learn how to control your board, hang on to your board - expertly illustrated - don't jump off!

Unless you have a leash which is guaranteed not to break, even when you're surfing with Dorian and Laird at Jaws, I guarantee the leash, eventually, is gonna break, and your loose board is probably gonna hit me [unless you really are at Jaws, 'cause I ain't gonna be there]

Perfect example of how soft the younger generation has become:
When I was the age of Mikey and Richard, I would intentionally stomp on stingrays just to prove how much pain I could take!

As always, I have to be very careful to keep a low profile at the Top Secret Reefs in La Jolla.
I am not familiar with most of the surfers in this area, but I did hear some participants who looked as if they belonged, comment on this guy's [in my uninformed opinion] great surfing: "That guy's too good to be Matt...It must be his new board!"

Editing more than 700 photos of the Menehune Contest at this point in time - Estimated completion time for more than 25 photo albums...??
However, this project is way over budget and naturally, I always attempt to find photos which have a reasonably level horizon and, appear to my limited vision, not too out of focus!

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]"
