A bit of history - from Mac Meda

More Boring Stuff: BA's Surf Turf Tours | Working on: "The Book of BA's Dribble and Drivel©" |

Terrible videos from a collection of terrible BA 8mm movies:

H-Bay 1969 | 1960 La Jolla Shores - Pat Manley's Club House  |  Mussel Rock, from the water 1961 | PB Surf Shop and "The Fence" 1970 | North Boomer 1961

======

Below are 4 of more than 50,000 photos I have archived, err, collected.

I think that "archived" implies some sort of ability to retrieve the contents [Google Search???]

{I can barely find a matching pair of socks in one dresser drawer, find an archived / collected photo on my website - hah}

===========

Luckily for me, I have collected a few photos taken by real photographers, some of which are below and are also throughout my Day With BA website.

I'm stoked that they have allowed me to use their photos...

Thank you - Thank you for your courtesy!

Jeff Divine took this photo of me in Baja ~ 1969 when I was doing my best to adhere to "Follow the Curl Line"
My board was a really cool Larry Strada gun, about 18.5" wide by about 7' long.

Thank you Jeff - sorry my photo storage techniques and post processing does not do justice to your great photography!

[by the way 1, Corky Carroll in 1967, said this about a photo of Jock Sutherland in Surfer Mag "...moves up and down and surfs both sides of the curl line, in contrast to the "old timers" who positioned themselves in the curl (on the curl line) and rode away from the break"]

[by the way 2, to this day, in my surf world, just about number one at the top of my list of annoying in the water behavior is longboard kooks - note kooks - not beginners - racing for the shoulder]

[by the way 3, I probably should not even ask why, but why would any surfer who has progressed past beginner status, want to miss the fun of staying in the curl, and possibly - gasp - getting barreled]

This photo was taken when I first began kneeboarding, and I'm enjoying, more and more, doing something I said I would NEVER do!

Merry Christmas - On my way to a very top secret surfing location - the air temp may be cold, but the ocean water is a balmy 72 degrees

BA's Notes -
Not that I enjoy seeing The Shores overrun by SUPs, Kooks, Jackasses of all stripes, etc., but if I had to, I would allow one of my kids or grandkids to hang around The Shores while I went surfing.

Would I let my 10 year old hang around some of the other parking lots in San Diego - e.g. WindanSea - a resounding NO

The Shores Guys, boring as they may appear to be, are very respectful, most are well educated professionals, and certainly are far better surfers than the denizens, trolls of some other more famous surf spot parking lots.

Include--> Not a very flattering photo of some of the Shores Guys - BUT -
they are great guys, with a high level of surfing skills as well as being respectful on land and water: older / younger

Question:
"BA - BA, why would anyone of sound mind and body, call the hot doc Scrapper?"

The Top Secret Answer is:

BA' s Last Blast of BS:

"For me, I'd rather be an old 1/2 man still surfing South Wind Shores [below photos was a great day], the LJ Reefs and Black's,
than an old whole man surfing Tourmaline.
[No offence to old men and my friends at Tourmo]"
