After Steve Aceti ruins all our surf spots in 2012 with his giant sand dump, Encinitas will probably drop off the list.

  4. Don't be hard on Anon, in fact, I feel sorry for him/her, and all him/her is missing. We have a surf culture that is unlike any other. It is NOT a sub culture. It's a friggin way of life, and I for one, am proud to be a part of it and am so happy to have a "surf family" like I have at Avo Street.

    If you knew anything about the history of surfing, you would know that it was a way for Hawaiian men to get from one island to another. There were no large boats nor planes, so they fashioned outrigger canoes or what you know today as paddle boards. They "surfed" the waves through the breakers to arrive at the shore line. Large paddle boards evolved into what you know as a surf board.

    Moving from island to island via paddle boards for trade or work has become the modern form of surfing. But no one surfs today as a means of trade nor work, it is an activity, recreation. Nothing more, nothing less. And before you tell me I don't know shit about surfing, I am the father of modern surfing, I am THE DUKE!!

  9. Time to bring back the original Stone Steps Surfing Contest when we all drank a resin cup (about a quart) of beer each heat.
