I know that place well- grew up in the canyon up the beach, before the market was built.
Pretty fun place to be a kid- I just took it for granted that it was normal to see Lurch and Uncle Fester shopping for groceries.
A little further 'round that corner (caution: "incredibly strange music"):
Looks like Lee Hazelwood could almost ride!
Ya know Jackie Coogan
Was a 40's surfer from San O to Dume!
You still local?
I would rather be someone's shot of whiskey, than everyone's cup of tea.
WHOA. Uncle Fester surfed???
That's gotta be the heaviest knowledge I ever got from Sways!
Matty, I moved to Santa Cruz in 1980, been in SF since 87, with some time (seems like a fading nice dream now) in New Zealand over the last decade.
great stuff on the quads - I had read a lot of that, and some of it I hadn't. But putting it all together in one place is awesome, there is a lot of valuable insight in that one post.
nothing is written in stone...
Eh! No mean rob your tread, yeah?
The PM deal is weird!
My message was copied from MS Word and pasted.
The 2nd PM just short and typed up on Sway’s...
So anyway, without reviewing past posts
I'm thinking (God willing and you’re digits get to working)
“Twisted Sister” and a Fun shape are just in flux…
Copied the quad set up you put up (smells of one Albert C. Elliot)
I really, REALLY like it!
Used it on these last two, quad only! (Photo)

Hey Matty thanx for checking in. It's doing better now but probably be another month before I'm running on all cylinders again.
Stubbled accross this old video
Day before power planers and men were men!
We have come a long, long way!
Pirating a tread

Got this “Grandpas” stoked
Cool! Finally got the video to play for me, commented in the other thread. Away from my computer, the I-phone can be a pain at times. Had the stubby out recently, good times. If only I had a chance to spend a little time with it in uncrowded conditions, but alas, this is so.cal.
edited to add: took it out again today at windy / bumpy Stables, had it out last week at Topangry. I like the board, but don't really have it wired yet. For me, it does better at a spot where there is not a lot of long distance paddling, and where there are not 3 guys paddling for every wave. Because in those scenarios, I like a longer board. So I can get waves, and I'm getting a little better understanding of the board's qualities and how to work it, but at times my sessions on it have been frustrating. I'm not ready to give up on it, but I've just gotta work my way through the learning curve.
