Old boys only.




There's a break down our way that's reserved for old boys. It wasn't necessarily planned that way. Neither is it enforced in any territorial manner. Reality is it's a pretty average wave. It does pick up what little swell might be around, but it's a bit slow, fat and crumbly. That doesn't matter though. The attraction of this break is the comradery amongst the more mature of those who delight in the ocean's joys. Paddle out there and you'll hear discussions on everything from Curren to chiropractics. There's something said for aging . . . The lack of fussing over trivial matters. The perspective of looking at life from 'the other end'. The simple pleasure of sharing a few waves with buddies.
