If there are any folks with ranch access, I'll gladly trade some days there for some summer days at Mugu. Serious offer.
Hmmmm....
Interesting trade....but not interested in Mugu.....how much would you be willing to pay for a day by boat....assuming you're capable and comfortable with a sometimes sketchy beach launch. FE discussion included at no charge :monkey: .

PS: Y'all seem to have the right attitude re public access....please take the time to make your opinion known to the Gaviota Conservancy and Gaviota Trail Alliance.

Not interested in Mugu? How come?

The week before the XL day, I surfed it with 3 other guys. Over head offshore, perfect barrels.

And the day after the XL day, me and 2 spongers. Firing.

Hell, you can walk from 1st Point to the Capitola Wharf at low tide
On one super huge day back in the 1990's I did just that but since I wanted to surf, I just paddled and surfed each break on my way to PP, then after a ride back to Jack's home, just kept getting right after right till I caught that super rare inside right just east of the wharf.

Good times.

It's private land. Why does everyone need access to it? And yes, public access will absolutely ruin the place. Surfers pretty much ruin everything. Just look at Malibu and the North Shore for examples.

Do the surfer ruin it or the business minded people ruin it...business minded surfers ruined it?

$16 billion in the State "rainy day" fund. Why the fook aren't we using it to turn the Ranch into a State park.

I am at Glacier Point about a decade ago.

A (German) tourist sees me getting ready to hit the Panorama Trail.

Decides this a a good time to lecture me on what is wrong with National Parks in the USA.

"This road should not end here, it should go to that big waterfall (he points to Nevada Falls) there. Then a good ski resort up that valley (Little Yosemite Valley)."

I can't remember what I said in return or if I just walked away in disbelief.

People and their need/want/desire for easy stuff.......

The ranch is pretty crowded now, even with limited access. Packed on weekends for sure. If you have a golden ticket and the freedom of time you can still score on random Tuesdays or evenings or whatever, but it's getting harder.

If you could just drive out there, every spot will be jammed with guys from SLO to Thousand Oaks all the time. There will be trash on the beach, slashed tires, the whole works.
