Swamis Sells California

I happen to have met the people who were given the contract to market the State of California to world as a place to work and visit. The very first advertisement I found of their's was in Sunset Mag.

They used a full page image of Swamis to sell California as the good life.

We still live other people's vacations.

  1. Hi there!
    I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
    I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
    Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

  2. Hi There!

    I would like to tell you if you visit swamis area and want to try surfing in that area, prepare to get punched in the nose if you screw up somebodies wave up. And YOU DESERVE IT. Learn to surf in crappy breaks before you try and surf in good breaks. Its the law.

  3. Congratulations – the Swami’s surf contest is on hold. Another thing that Encinitas activists have stopped. We are so good at stopping things! All of you who actually like to do things – move along.

    As they say – “critics never build”.

  6. Doing something to Swamis makes Encinitas a worse place to live.

  8. I agree. NO SURFING AT SWAMIS, unless you are a recognized local.
    I remember when they had the rabbit breaders show at Glen Park. I could not find a place to park when I went to shoot hoops. THAT IS NOT RIGHT. This is no place for. rabbit show. I go there all the time to shoot hoops, have for years. It is a sacred place for me, and other locals, to shoot hoops. Now everything is changed, because the park was used for a civic event.
    It was the end of the world, as we knew it. I don't go down there anymore. It has been spoiled.
    Please stop the rabbit shows at Glen Park and womens
    surf contests at Swamis.

  9. Encinitas does not need more professional sports competitions.

  10. 1031,

    Was the rabbit show a for profit venture that used the public property to make a profit at your expense? Was anyone else allowed to own the park for a day to make a profit, or was the rabbit show promoter a friend of Mayor Houlihan and got special treatment?

  11. why I moved to LAJanuary 23, 2010 10:37 AM

    The city is so much worse off now that we have open access to the park and now the Rabbit shows have to lease space on private property?

    Yea, those damn rabbit breaders. They were a non profit group, and some of them were professional breaders and even though they used some proceeds to help preserve Glen Park, everyone knows that those nonprofit groups are all crooks that just use that term to steal from us. And yea, it turns out that after that, the Boy Scouts started using the park. It was just the beginning. I don't know if the rabbit breaders had friends in high places, but those damn scouts sure seem to have influencial on the the council.

  13. It sounds like the rabbit convention is not a good comparison to the Swamis surf contest.

  14. Don't get too excited yet. If you read the article about the contest being on hold, Linda says she's stopped looking for sponsors until they know if they got the permit or not.

    If the permit is granted, you know this debacle will be on.

  16. Linda's on vacation in Mexico right now so, yeah, she's not actively seeking sponsors. The madness will resume upon her return.

  19. My buddy and I just started surfing and we plan to head out to Swamis this weekend. It might just become my spot. And I dare any of those punks to yell at me (or punch me) for screwing up their ride. (Trust me I can handle anything they throw at me -- I'm a big, mean, nasty guy). Pisses me off they think they own the ocean.

  20. California sucks. Don't even visit.

  21. I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our lives, and I am fairly certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


    I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further develops, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about almost every day.
