Only deep in the bowels of Swaylock's does there lurk the walking dead. The “old timers” that the kids laugh at and think we are full of crap! In my day, heard many a story from old timers and one such “story” hangs with me to this day. “Old timer takes off at Overhead (Ventura) going left (must ‘a been summer) and the wave walls all the way the Solimar. Hey that was a lot to believe! I tell the story of seeing overhead breaking all the way from what looked like the Channel Islands! A whopper for sure! BUT, after all the HYPE about this last swell! Hey the Mavericks coverage was great and thru the semi’s it was worth it. But despite all the F’ng hype, quite lack luster. So like this Olphart sez, I mean BIG. Enjoy Ventura Winter 1969 Aloha!
