Kudos to all the kids cleaning the beach today. But is the techno music pointing towards the sea really needed?

Rant - Coastal Act

Here is a link to the full text of the coastal act. I hear people talking left and right about how Vinod is ignoring the coastal act, or whether or not the judge will ignore it. Has anyone actually read it?

Judge has a month to decide if she wants to open the beach to the public and obey current California law, or simply patently IGNORE the current law, The California Coastal Act.

I happened to see a wind meter set up along Great Highway between L and N the other day. Does anyone know if the readings are posted anywhere?

Picked this board up a few years ago, but I'm still not quite man enough to surf it. Would love to trade for a slightly beefier 6'4 or 6'6. In good shape. Hit me up if you're interested.

Another day of fun in the South Orange County sun. Fun sized surf, chest+ range. The wind was blowing enough to keep the smoke away from the beach, but not enough to put any noticeable texture on the surface. Water was warm again... even a handful of dudes out in trunks. It took me a while to figure out how to work the crowd, but I did end up getting my fair share of waves.

Went down to visit the family in Orange County. Borrowed my dad's board (flew down, couldn't bring mine) and hit up Trestles. Surfed middles and had clean lined up surf almost to myself (chest/shoulder high on better sets). Sunny and the water was warm as hell.

Great board, nothing but some pressure dings. Lightly used for the last two years, maybe 20 times? Fast and responsive, plus catches a lot with the extra volume. Send me a message if you'd like to take a look.

National Sea Monkey Day is observed on May 16, 2014. Sea-Monkeys is a brand name for brine shrimp - a group of crustaceans that undergo cryptobiosis - often sold in hatching kits as novelty aquarium pets. Invented in 1957 by Harold von Braunhut, the product was heavily marketed, especially in comic books, and remains a presence in popular culture.

If you like oogling at the dolphins and whales out at the beach, then pick up your f#*king trash. You think Mrs Whale and her calf want to suck on your empty beer cans and cheetos bags.Why the hell do people think the beach is their trash can? No work tomorrow so I'm going out to clean up other peoples shit. Join in if you feel like it.

"Laird Hamilton is considered by many to be the best surfer in the world. Born in San Francisco, Laird caught his first wave at age three and was hooked."

"To all of you "surfers" out there. If you're itching to come out to the beach and surf because it's sunny just like in all of the groovy surf movies but there isn't any surf, you should realize that by driving all the way here it isn't going to make the surf magically appear. There are a couple of things that actual surfers know and do.
