BA's Notes
I have been lucky to have been able to maintain some sort of relevance in the surf spots between Bla**'s and The Lounge.

Will I be able to maintain this level for 30 more years, and hit the century mark - better living thru chemistry may be the answer...

BA's Notes -
Somewhere in the internets - thanks to Al Gore - there is a piece penned by my friend Scott Bass - which as I remember reading - was something like: Do you surf in a Surf Spot or a Surf Destination or is there a difference, or??

Since I'm getting way old, my memory of the piece is probably way off, but anyway my thoughts:
In my surf world, which - gasp - spans about 60 years, La Jolla Shores was never a Surf Destination until - apparently - the past couple of years.

As kids, we were stuck at The Shores and had it pretty much to ourselves for many years.

The PB guys would show up if it were a south wind, or the day after an onshore blow thru. The WindanSea guys would rarely appear, unless they felt a need to practice their latest tortures on The Shores Grems.

Speaking for myself, my goal was to leave my Surf Spot, and to improve my surf skills enough to grab the leftovers at a Surf Destination, e.g. WindanSea, Big Rock, Horseshoe, etc.

Early in it's surf history, even Black's was not a Surf Destination, for us, it was merely an extension of The Shores [I know, blasphemy]

The early surf movies we watched validated the fact that the La Jolla Reefs were destinations, and even we knew that Black's quality waves would soon ensure destination status.

The Shores - however - as a destination????

This morning, full parking lot, surfers clogging the lineup from The Shallow End all the way to Scripps - ouch - it took a few decades, but yippee, The Shores is now a Surf Destination, not merely a Surf Spot.

BA's Notes -
Good luck slogging thru 13 photo albums of WindanSea Surf Club's, err, La Jolla's Rough Water Swim and Fish Taco Fest!

By the time you finish with Album 2 of 13 you'll probably be as bored looking at out of focus, repetitive and crooked horizon photos as I was as I attempted to edit my photos.

I was going to spice up the albums with a few photos I took yesterday, when I went - gasp - bowling with my son Eric and 4 of my grand kids but Audee wouldn't sign the model release.



==========================

Photo Album:  Hard work and fish taco consumption were enjoyed by all. Photos by Bill Andrews

Photo Album:  More Aloha - More friends - Swamis Glen and his bride [Glen watched, while his wife swam the 3 mile course]

Photo Album:  The hardest workers were the young ones - Whew - Thank you!!

Delivery by Grunow Construction

Not only does Joe Roper organize and run the Fish Taco Stand, he also takes on the added task of herding all the water patrollers into the staging area for last minute instructions from the life guards - AND - getting them all together into one tight group for a family photo - Roper did a great job - I failed yet again to get the entire group into one photo - oh well - I'll return some of the big $$ I received for exclusive photo rights.

All the Water Patrollers will end up paddling for more than 3 miles;
and even though the conditions are almost perfect for a 3 mile swim, some of the swimmers will need assistance;
the WindanSea Water Patrollers are there to provide help until the lifeguards arrive

Scripps Pier marks the half way mark for the swim - 1.5 miles from the Cove.

That's 1.5 miles each way on a straight line!
[I know that I cannot swim 50 yards in a straight line in a pool with lane markers]

Bill Andrews' AM Photos of Top Secret Reefs in La Jolla

Secretly taken in highly polluted water, inhabited by very hostile locals



Bill Andrews' AM Photos of Top Secret Reefs in La Jolla Illustrate the - GASP - value of non-family friendly beaches

 "BA - BA how can you be so politically incorrect / insensitive to those who just want to set up their campsites on the beach, and clog the roadways?"

Luckily for me, there are still a few hostile locals at The Shores! /





BA' s Last Blast of BS:
"For me, I'd rather be an old 1/2 man still surfing South Wind Shores [below photos 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]"
