Sometimes I miss living in OB.

Then I see that seawall north of the pier and I remember.

I was there for the last marshmallow fight. Was more of a fight than people throwing mellows. Dont miss the sticky sidewalk aftermath.

I am grateful for the time I spent living and surfing there. But for this phase of my life, it wouldn't be as enjoyable.

that's funny. i spent the 80's in SF - young, single, and straight. had a blast, but no, for this phase of my life, it would definitely not be as enjoyable.

that cam link doesn't work for me - stream not available...wish it would, would love to see a good cam view of thumping OB.

I lived in OB from Feb 93 until March of 99. Grunge and good beer. Big Jetty days. Avalanche. Cliffs.

Still go there but rarely to surf.

I know three surfers that live there but never surf there. When It's flat, that's my desperation spot cause it's a swell model.

It's change a lot but hasn't if that makes sense?

OB has a unique smell of patchouli, bums and sewage.

And let's not get into the bang up job they do fixing the roads there.

I'm glad that being older, not single, and bent isn't as enjoyable for you.

Wnenever I surf OB San Diego, I go in with low expectations... generally sucks. Best part is cruising Newport and hitting the stores and beer/food.

I love OB. It's one of the last, "un-gentrified" beach towns in California. It's already changing, but it still has such distinct, unique feel.
