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.

Saturday October 27 event. Free tickets at Ventura County library. Barbarķan Days is a beautifully addictive memoir of a surfing life. I may have a spare ticket.

Had great surf this past Sunday in NJ (not me below). I was embedded in a lip of a wave like this, however, and got beat about the head and face my my board. You know it's bad when you're going over the falls and you are kicking your board with your knees.

It's an instagram video; couldn't post directly. Water was a balmy 58 that day and it's only getting colder and better.

Quite interesting. When will the first surf trip involve only man-made waves?

Give 'em a piece of the north shore, in early winter. Not ready?

Hope it does some good for the Hawaii too. Women seem to spend on their kids, making their home. #fromher

NJ has been firing over the last few weeks. This was last Friday. I had to work; my son had a snow day and scored. He said he got the biggest, scariest tube of his life. Was in San Diego last weekend and wished I was in NJ.

Looks ok, not as big as his little freak out about the size makes you think, and only a handful of small barrels even made, more hype then reality. But more fun than a barrel of monkeys, thats for sure...
16' @ 10sec! Sounds brutal with that close period, imagine if that period was more like 16-20 sec, NJ wouldn't even exist anymore.

My son is not a professional surfer, is 16 yo and small for his age. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt regarding the biggest, scariest tube of his life.

edit: gunkie, good to surf close to those close to you, or at least out there in it.?

Gunkie, nothing against you son, I fully can see that. I was referring to the guy in the video, hey, it was pumping, no doubt! AND was 1,000x better than what I did on Friday
