After that ridiculous west coast flat spell it does an old jetty hound good to see the white winged waves rumbling down the harbor jetties that comprise Wedge, the Inside Channel left (featured) and the Off the End Foamers all of which are the stuff of surf lore and legend around these parts.
All three of these main wave haunts, along with other esoteric gems which come to life under those rare conditions are wholly man made accidents,...to the delight of us all.
On this swell the current locals were playing cat and mouse with the Harbor Patrol during the low tide cycle of Saturday October 7th, 2017. This practice has been going on since before my prime riding days of the 70's.
Threats of fines, arrest and jail time we're being bull horned by the badge wearing "Authority Figure", from the tax/theft supported harbor police vessel.
With all the Horrific Problems Facing Mankind, there exists a thought process in some minds that consider apprehending surfers under charges as absurd as exceeding the harbor speed limit while riding a wave or just posing a risk of personal injury for needing an adrenaline fix to break the mind numbing boredom of our conformist, rule following daily existence.
Such a shame that an obviously hot little wave machine should be prohibited especially when these days and conditions are so damned rare.
Considering the new Era of man made surf venues in the middle of nowhere, aka the @kellyslater wave machine, it begs the question as to WHY we don't make waves Everywhere ! The harbor patrol should be the first guests to see what all the fuss has been about all these years.
I know an old surf photographer who has a pretty deep knowledge in the workings of waves, marketing, and business basics. He is surf stoked, fairly well credentialed and a highly motivated marketing and publicity representative. Should someone be in need of such assistance DM me please.
