BA's Notes:

A friend of mine has a great website going, and, by the way, he continues to charge Black's and the LJ Reefs!

One of his most recent entries regards the passing of his father, family infighting about how to divvy up the "stuff" and more:

< http://kelpfire.com/surf-story-lost-slides/ >

"In the late summer of 1992 my dad, Hal Lewis, was in his last days with his battle with cancer eventually passing away in early August. His lymphoma was caused by a long undiagnosed Melanoma which had slowly and cruelly destroyed his once spartan physique and took him from us at the young age of 62."

"After his death, I didn’t keep very many things. The other family members sold the stuff that one collects over a lifetime and the haggling for big appliances and his car wasn’t what I wanted to be involved in."

My opinion:

Ken's surfing peer group is probably the last containing any significant numbers who were part of the quantum leap towards high performance surfing and surfboards - fortunately for the current surf world, Ken's group can go anywhere in the world, be respected in the line-up, and whose history / memories continue to be relevant.

Luckily for us, another one of his friends [and mine] got Ken off of "kindda stuck" regarding Ken's preserving and archiving the "Lost Slides"

"These have been in my possession now for 22 years and I have never showed anyone these images till last year when my friend PMK asked to see them."

"I hope people smile like I did when I first saw these. We had them scanned and hope to share more soon."
< http://kelpfire.com/surf-story-lost-slides/ >

Great job Ken, please keep your words and photos flowing - I know it ain't easy!

Speaking of smiles, prior to most of the current surf clubs in California, there was The La Jolla Surf Club, founded by the best surfers in the world, home base: La Jolla Shores ~ 1960:

Well, it ain't a bird, or a plane, and most certainly ain't Super Man,
it's me [BA] attempting the Up Flippers position for the Flat Man Surf Capades 2015


Tom knows exactly how to enter the dangerous waters of La Jolla Shores
and is able to avoid the deadly Fire Coral Reefs, unique to The Shores

Deployment of Tower 32 = tourists and of course more kooks in an already clogged lineup

BA' s Last Blast of BS:

"For me, I'd rather be an old 1/2 man and / or even a flat man, still surfing South Wind Shores [THANK YOU RK], the LJ Reefs and Black's, than an old whole man surfing Tourmaline.
[No offence to old men and my friends at Tourmo]"
