AM Photos: Proof That Leashes Ruined Surfing 5 These Kooks Owe Their Lives To The Tethers

[They were floundering in the shorebreak when I came in - I tried to convince them they belonged at Tourmaline - no luck]

"BA-BA, why are you picking on these guys, they have as much right to be in the water as you do!"

This issue is not about rights - it's about safety - Luckily Dale knows how to avoid the kook kocktail ...

in what other sport could one mix, within the participating group, the best surfer in the world, and someone who has NEVER caught a wave in their life?

Every time I use a real surfer, riding a real wave as a size reference, I elicit tons of feedback from non-surfers all over the world:
"BA, BA, there is no person or wave as large as you try to b.s. us into believing - Your surf reports suck!!"

I forgot to add that KK is a transplant from Brobdingnag [Land of the Giants and Giant Waves] and the scale is about 12:1 of KK's to BA's
[I trotted out my abacus to determine if the ratio is really 12:1 and my math may be a bit off, I don't really know how tall KK is, but according to my mom, Mrs. Pink, I am taller than 1 foot.

I should be applauded, not mocked for uploading proof about Brobdingnag's waves and surfers!
After all, I braved polluted water and hostile locals in order to Photo Eddy KK and his wave!

BA's Notes:

Interesting morning - a bit crowded at 5:00 AM at Wind**Sea - but manageable and there were not any, err, too many strangers in the lineup.

I have been surfing in La Jolla for almost 60 years, and sometimes - actually way too often - the total number of participants in the water kindda irritates me.

I guess having memories of uncrowded days makes me think that when it does get crowded, the way one surfs, or would like to surf, has to be modified.

Not only does one have to ride the wave as it [the wave] dictates, at the same time we have to avoid others dropping in - paddling out - or in other ways clogging the line-up...

Today, for the first time since returning from Tonga, and the beating I took there, my old man pains were not dictating how I had to surf, and naturally, I sounded off - more than once - as I voiced my frustrations with the crowd.

Oh well, it's Sunday in July, I'll recharge for tomorrow and clear my head of any tragic flaws I may have!

For the past 60 + years, surfers from all over the known [and unknown] world have asked me:

"BA-BA La Jolla has always had the best surfers in the world, why are they so good, are they born in the sand, like a grunion?"

Believe it or not, I've always been at a loss for words, because if there ain't a photo, it does not exist -

Finally, I have proof of the birth of a great surfer: Emma, born in a wetsuit, ready to surf, emerging from the sand, just like a grunion:

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]"
