haha you have no idea. even on this great massive swell i've been anticipating for a whole week, things turned out crappy. reports were easily saying 8 foot and glassy, with slight offshores.

true outcome- 4-7 foot crazy mush sets, smashing everywhere, with cols temps, wild winds heading south, and it being overcast all day with strong southern currents.

i was definately not happy, and had more fun sunday riding waist high clean glassy sets, on a sunny warm day

dk

glad to see someone scored all weekend

thats awesome PPK, always like to hear stories of the history of my area

I surfed that right in the Surfing picture a couple times this winter, fast long backside barrels that I wasn't making, but a couple groms were always coming out and getting loooong shacks. I mostly stuck a good left in the general viscinity

In the 60's at one time....that long beach run from the traffic light that comes out of El Segundo going TOWARDS Playa Del Rey,use to be one of the great Street Racing places around.The strip going by the Hyperion Plant was long and straight and the run-down time after the quarter mile gave you lots of time to slow down and turn up Imperial Hwy or just make a u-turn and watch on the "beach side of Vista Del Mar.

The cops finally got wise due to so many cars within the area AND..if you were caught...Everyone got a ticket..or ran for the beach..which at that time a ticket was just issued to you and your "abandoned" vehicle.Racers would either come out of El Porto or turn around at the old "Standard Gas Station" right there on the corner,move towards the stop light..and when the light turned green...the race was on...to the finish line...about mid point of the Plant..just passed the driveway....60's Chevy,Fords,the new Dodge hemis were coming out then...and the races were on .....

fun day's..running down to the beach...from the cops and laughing like silly teenagers.......but the smell sometimes got too bad from the beach and pier....and folks puked...either from drinking too much or just the oil-like smell all the time..

"Nuff already Pope"!!
Aloha,
PPK







the speeders on vista del mar between 45th street and hyperion have increased their speed since the 60s....and while there's a race here and there it seems like everyone just inadvertantly treats that stretch as if it was a racetrack!

the aroma of poop is still there and anyone driving the hwy during an offshore wind will tell you to hold your breath between grand ave and imperial....

the oil smell isn't as thick as it was when the pier was there but chevron still pumps a lot of crude in from the tankers just offshore....

and the cops seem to have every few hundred yards of vista del mar staked out with radar on a busy day!!

watch out for the pd just south of the grand ave. signal....
sometimes around the hyperion parking lot....often at the entrance to dockweiler...and up on the hill at sandpiper street there's a motorcycle cop that seems to blend in with the sand dunes....we could finance a third world country with the funds generated in traffic violations along that stretch of coast!!

there's a little cranny in the side of the road just south of the Grand parking lot that cops sit in on their bikes, writing tickets all day long. that whole area is definitely a speed trap.
