    6/26/06 Sunset Cliff

    Marina went to the secret spot in Sunset Cliff s area last week with her friend. She got stoked from surfing there. She decided to introduce the secret spot to SDDS and go surfing with her.


    Marina, Reed, and I met at the parking a lot between 6 to 6:30 PM. She warned us that there would be a long walk to the secret spot. I enjoyed by walk ing though bushes and some mini-canyons like in the movie "Indian Jones" like an adventure trip. Also, we walked through the baseball field. Then, we had to be careful by walking down the hill by the cliff since it was very deep. The water was splashing on the cliff s where we had to paddle out quickly before the big swell comes and hits.

    There were three other surfers were out in the water besides us ready to catch some waves. I learned the waves have different characters than any other beach in my experience. The perky waves were processed quickly as we probably could do the pearl dive to the bottom of the ocean floor. It turned out it was a successful after we paddle to catch. We enjoyed our sessions right before the sunset.

    We walked back to the same route and the water sprinklers were on at the baseball field. We were pleased to rinse our boards while the water spray moved to different direct ions, which we had to chase them until our boards get clean completely. (Ha.. ha..) Finally, we left parking a lot at 8:30 PM.

    It was a great experience for me including my friends, Marina and Reed!

    Stay Stoked,

    6/24/06 at Tourmaline

    Hello SDDS,

    Reed and I were paddling out and it wasn’t really crowded on the water on Saturday. It was nice for us because we had more room to catch waves as much we can. The waves were little bit weak by shaped but there were surf-able by longboard. Later in the morning, the wind got speed up and the water sprayed on our faces while paddling as we tried to catch waves which were really difficult. So, we gave up but caught the last wave and rode all way to the land by lucky!

    Reed and I were considering having a couple trips and surf at San Onofre with families.

    Please do let us know if you are interested to join!

    Stay Stoked,


    Ultimate Sessions


    One of our friends invited Holly and I go to the theatre and watched a movie called, “Ultimate Sessions” in La Jolla. It was an interesting movie. I didn’t realize surfers don’t wear any leash plus single fin on their “retro” surfboard that rides through barrel. I was impressed with those surfers because I don’t see any of those like that today.

    I almost forgot about what’s so cool in 1970’s:

    • Logo: BOLT on surfboards
    • Shorts are too short!
    • Thick Mustache
    • Long hair
    • Fading Hippie ERA
    • Yellow tank top with zipper on the front “wetsuit”

    If you don’t remember those days then you were probably too young or grew up in somewhere far away from the ocean.

    My Dad was surfing a lot after graduated from high school in 1969 and he continued to surf until mid-1970. I had a big inference by my dad about surfing. He fixed and painted cool art on “retro” surfboard and gave it to me for x-mas or birthday in mid-1980. Every time, I see it hanging on the wall outside of poolside, it makes me proud of my dad.

    Stay stoked,
