    Anyone been to North Telos Island?

    I went to the Telos in 2010 on a boat trip. Lots of choices there. I think the wave that's on the south side of the place you're going is kinda soft as I recall. Here's a photo.. But as mentioned, there are all kinds of waves there..DM me for more info and photos.

    Patagucci

    Back in the day Chouinard carabiners were the best ones...we used 'em rock climbing in the Pinnacles. He also came up with the RURP, Realized Ultimate Reality Piton.

A couple days later, holy chit, my right ear was plugged! Tried everything, Debrox, hydrogen peroxide, etc. to no...
