no spam ... just a change of handle since the old ones seem to be unrecoverable.

The POM is on an incredible piece of land and both surf shops in town are just off the base on Lighthouse drive. they both have a selection of rentals if you are not interested in hauling your board. The POM MWR also rents softtops (which seem I see almost every time I am out)

The spamming incident was a short-lived one. Monterey appreciation resumed without a hitch.

I almost lost my ancient Slug baseball cap yesterday.

Brother, when you get a minute, could I get a list of the words that trigger these fits?

Silly trip to Newport Beach this past summer. First time to see the Wedge in person. It was kid-sized. Weather between Denver and Orange Co. was beautiful, lots of good aerial photos from the plane window. Came back with an extra pair of Yucca fins. Didn't catch the Virus.

""Ralphy's!!!"" Most of the '70's, during the yellowtail bite, we'd drag my good friends' Dad's boat out SD harbor past whatever Naval vessels would be in, with sticks strapped up under the gunwales, and depending how much swell was actually getting in around the corner, would either hit the bait boat and go get bit down the few (read: many) miles on the Coronado's or,,, hit the Point til spaghetti arms~~ In a decades worth of zip'in across that super fun point section (a couple different sections there though) I don't think we surfed with more than a couple dozen guys. The Navy I think it was, used to call you outta there early on, (you are pretty close to navigating traffic and sensitive chit 'round 'dere) even though it was obvious what a couple knuckleheads we're doing double anchored, no one onboard, but 2 guys 75 yrds away in the water. Then it seemed they had other things to do, but we had it to ourselves most of the time and felt like diamond thieves! I must admit a couple of times I remember during surprise building ground swells from which/where/ whatever direction, we'd have hit it to the fish'in grounds, find it picked up and big ass humps all the way back in, I'd be 'wrecked' and throw'n chunks (ralph'n at Ralphy's!) seasick unable to get it together to surf, with Ralphy's undoubtedly look'n "perfect" as that place CAN look more perfect than it is, but that's part of the 'cool' of it anyway right~~ YeEw!! UCFLee1- do ya get any of that?! or do you and yours stick to the out front cliffs reefs? I miss that area and all o'Baja these days~~

Christmas through New Years was big and fun. Absolutely leashed it then I live close to Garbage so that is usually where I go when. Bonus that it breaks when those other spots aren't. Sure wish I woulda decided lived here when I was younger and had more free time.

Got most of it I will run the rest by my neighbor over a post session to decipher the rest Been sticking to the cliffs ... pretty much from Garbage (the stairs are just around the corner) and north. Usually only have an hour or two of free time so suit up, walk down, hit it, and get home. Could be a bit better but could be a whole lot worse!
