I've been paddling out at The Shores for almost 60 years -

First times paddling out, I was on a 9' 6" balsa board and I probably weighed 90 pounds, testosterone level of ???

Today, I'm on a 5' 8" foam board, and I tip the scale at 190 pounds of [hopefully] throbbing testosterone, or more likely a diminished T-Level of???

- Whew - now it's nap time!

Words:

I haven't surfed in a few days - however - today was great!

The sets - even at high tide - were feathering at Emmett's Reef, and rolling in to The Shores!

I figgered I better practice in these giant waves, swallowed my fear, and rode the waves of a lifetime, or at least the waves of the morning!

"BA - BA, why did you go out in such dangerous conditions? You're a 100 years old, are you still insurable?"
Obviously, I have neglected to post that I am making a serious surf trip to Tonga in May of this year.

And - no - Tonga is not in Africa, I think that's The Congo.

Tonga is somewhere in the South Pacific - not exactly sure where that is - but I'm learning how to use Google Earth!

Phil's new Mitsven and the waxing process draws a crowd -

Phil borrows a line from Mark Twain:

Say – I’m going in a-surfing, I am. Don’t you wish you could?
But of course you’d druther wax my board – wouldn’t you? Course you would!

12 February 2013

Words:

[I know that my audience for this drivel is limited to my mom, my grand kids, and a few who are looking for an online fish wrapper - however I do kind of like talking to myself, anyway...]

There are some great lines in the cult classic "North Shore"
Watch the video, think about one of these paraphrased lines : Spoken by a local Hawaiian surfer, to Rick Kane in the lineup "You're a kook, go in, you're dangerous!"

As I have said many times, on my websites, and in person to you in the lineup:

There is a difference between a beginning surfer and a kook - and - by the way, Rick Kane progressed so rapidly from kook to surfer in a mere summer, that he was able to beat Laird in a contest at The Pipe.

We all have had to progress / struggle thru the beginner process, most of us, luckily, did not linger very long in the kook / dangerous stage.

I think the LJ Shores [former] Southenders are a great example of a group [most, not all] which went from annoying in the lineup to those with whom I am proud to surf.

Again - as I have said many times - we will never enjoy the sparse crowd totals today [in La Jolla] like we had when I started surfing in the mid fifties, however, the better the surfers are in the water, the more waves you and I will catch!

Some of you have been stuck in kookland for way too many years - you are dangerous to others in the lineup - go home - stay home or go to a surf spot where you and your fellow kooks can run into each other.

Today - though the waves were small - produced a great surfing display of skills, courtesy, and all around water fun.

Note: The SUP surfing level was great -

"BA-BA, why was that?"

Because the SUPers know how to surf:

Katie, Jeff, Tad, RickMitch, put on a good show!

"BA - BA where have you been hiding - your mom called us to find out why you have not updated your stupid web site?"

My answer:

After an MRI last week, I found out my rotator cuff has been torn - doc asked me why I didn't complain about it [the pain] a few years ago - told him it was not as painful as my other injuries, plus the Apex Predator, Alpha Male, as I am, cannot take any time out of the lineup - gotta keep my place in the water!

Gonna try some PRP - Stem Cell Therapy on Friday - The therapy has worked fairly well for my back - so shoulder?

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]"
