BA's Notes -
I made a number of Rookie Mistakes today -
Anyone who has the misfortune to surf with me, especially at The Reefs, has heard me rail about Rookie Mistakes [even though the object of my derision could be an experienced surfer].

Today was Rookie Mistake Day for me:

Got a late start, and I should know that paddling out at 6:00 AM is late

Did not check tide conditions, and I knew, after I got to the water's edge, that coming in for me, after about an hour in water, was not gonna be a lot of fun

Did not look at the entrance / exit spot just south of the shack which should have been an option for me
[I am so used to paddling out just north of the shack that now I have to be more careful - ouch]
I know very well that my ego is far from my amigo, lessons learned after about 60 years of La Jolla surfing, dealing with the "Pink Bod" nickname, and I should not have let my vision of me bouncing around in the shorebreak to stop me from going out - but I guess that's my problem - do I really care what others in the lot think of my floundering!

Bill Andrews photo proving that looks can deceive:
this wave is probably the most dangerous in San Diego - Only Archie's is more difficult to master

The enthusiastic kayakers had a ton of spearfishing equipment, plus wetsuit stuff, plus who knows what else.

I wonder if they lost their kayak and fishing licenses also?

Could be some good diving for equipment tomorrow morning?

Welcome to La Jolla Shores, epicenter for San Diego's polluted water, terrible waves and extremely hostile locals...
locals with a penchant for delivering a whole lot of pain!

Incoming phone call from "Restricted Number" : "BA, any surf this morning?"

<I usually never answer a restricted number call, just in case it's someone from the dark place from a long time ago>
My answer: "Naw it's always terrible in La Jolla!"

South wind : north swell : Of course, there may be some surf somewhere...

BA's Notes - I have to warn my only readers - mom and grandkids - there may be too much information [text message shorthand: TMI] below:
Recent surgeries: Left hip, total replacement [4 months ago] - and my lower back was rebuilt [5 weeks ago]

Now, my left hip has developed heterotropic ossification - ouch - and my right groin area is full of scar tissue from previous injuries / surgeries.

Pretty darn painful - I would not wish this pain on even my worst enemy[ies]

Fairly tough getting out of bed, from lying on my back to standing [as vertically as possible]

Anyway, I did not want to star in the TV commercials for life alert or whatever that product is - "Help, I've fallen and can't get up!"

So - I rigged up a pull myself up rope from my doorknob to my bed - I pull on the rope, get up, and then work out on the pulley system I have mounted on my door - way cool!

Going thru archives:

Way, way back, there was a gang of young guys, home-based primarily at The Cliffs, who would come to Black's.

A number of these guys were kneeboarders, outstanding surfers by the way, but they were still "Half Men"

They received a lot of crapola from us, and I remember very well adding kneeboarding to my list of "I'll never..."

My I'll never list included: ...Ride a foam board, ...wear a wetsuit, ...use a leash and so on.

All I can say is that my longboard surfing was never that good, but I sure am having a lot of fun doing something I said I would never do so many years ago: 1/2 manning it!

This photo was taken when I first began kneeboarding, and I'm enjoying, more and more, doing something I said I would NEVER do!



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]"
