I'd want a kite to scoot out ahead of what's about to come down. Love this thread. :-)

Had the best long-board session of my life Friday morning at Rincon. Fantastic feeling. I'd have pics, but my wife was using her phone for work instead of being my personal photog...

Coronado again!- not very often...

So true about goofy gooters (I'm regular) He's over six feet tall and has the 5 tool goofy foot repertoire.

Speaking of regular footers...I love Rincon- good on you!

I recall folks starting the paddle from North Beach to Ralph's, but I never heard of anyone making it.

Got rid of the airplane trace, could have been a violation.

Continuing the Coronado theme

DC and I grew up a couple of blocks from one another. I considered him a pretty good friend. So good in fact that he took me home and propped me against the door, rang the bell and ran after I got pretty drunk (we didn't try any rapes) and puked all over in his car.

We had some fun Baja trips.

Technically, closer to the Lighthouse than Coronado

Z- this is getting weird- I was friends with DC's son Scott in the mid 70's. We'd all jump in my Dad's Volkswagen van and go downtown to skateboard paradise or the concourse or what have you. My Dad and DC...shit everyone would smoke doobs and fly down that thing. Of course Max was always there.

Later on I remember DC's smoothies from his Mulberry tree.

DC lived on Second Ave at the corner of King St. So too did Lalo (Lyle John Hitchcock) live on Second Ave.

I do not know what street another local Carlos Santana lived on, but here's a little contribution from the two of them. Gerry Lopez? Don't those Hispanicals hang together.

Doncha love to see someome riding waves without a tuxedo

One thing that makes them complimentary is that as I recall it surfin' was mainly just having fun and cute girls.

Maybe some nose riding.
