Chouinard got me out on a long board in Ventura back in the mid-60s. Never caught a wave. Loved to body surf though.

My son was an avid surfer and we always promised each other to learn the other's sport. He never became a climber and I never became a surfer. Always regretted that.

Slater surfing my home break in Sea Girt/Spring Lake NJ on OCT 30 2017. My son and I went out yesterday at the same spot (OCT 31) and it was half the size and awesome.

Wow Gunkie- that looks like Oxnard.

Yes- Pipes. Love it up there!

Our son's first NSSA Collegiate surf contest, representing Cal Poly. This was his heat winning wave at blacks Beach.

Congrats on your son's surfing. I hope to be at Black's NOV 10, 11, 12 visiting our daughter at UCSD. But since she is teaching surfing both weekend mornings we'll probably just surf outside of the class on the north side of Scripps pier.

What a place to have a kid at school! I've heard the NS of the pier has been good lately!

Cheers!

I just ran across this video of Ocean Beach in in SF from a year ago. It pretty much captures it all. Beautiful but shifting peaks. It sure strikes from chords for me of my home break.



Don't ask how many waves I ever actually caught or how many days I even managed to get outside.

So I *attempted* to surf Ocean Beach SF exactly once. I got my ass kicked and never made it outside. It looked different than the video above, which looks great. The day I tried to paddle out, 1st bar was a completely thumping death zone. I got washed down the beach about a 1/2 mile until I came in, walked up (with tail between legs), strapped the board on the car and drove out of there. I was intimidated as hell that day.

Yeah, your mention of the side-shore rip made me smile in wincing remembrance of many an ass thumping. I still can't believe how well some people handle the whole length of Ocean Beach, even on suboptimal days. I wasn't one of those.

As a matter of interest, the first guy in the video you see sitting up has given up paddling out and is turning around to come back to shore.
