Gawd Murphy, you're older than dirt. I din't even get in the water until 58'.

HOPELESS said...

Lord have mercy, Fats, this Blog-O-Rama is titled San-O Daze. There's nothing about the 'history of surfing' with San Onofre. Otis Chandler and Jim Galloon don't count. Billy Ming, nobody at treasured San Onofre knows who he his. Well, pawn my soul, we should thank Murphy for re-introducing us to our sport. As Corky might say, "COWABUNGA"!

Murph, when checking your story, how many older fellows do you think remember 'Ole Ming'. We know you do.

Just the facts mam, as Joe used to say. Too bad Pfahler does not do computer. I'd get 100%

Ten Over said...

Come on Steak, lets have it. As in, your list?

Sand Crab said...

Just think how much those boards would be worth today? Look at the condition of all of them.

Wicker said...

Whats the chance that Velzy made all of the boards?

'Ten Over', I have no idea of who those 71 year olds are. I checked with Tubes, he said Vorhees lived in a house on the beach at
17th, hence the 17th St. Seals. He mentioned Vorhees did have a nickname 'Hog'. Can you guess why?

Crab said...

That too, but Hog was Hogans nick name when I was a surf matt guy when this pic was taken.

Crabb, are you familiar with the word paranthetical. It refers to sentences contain-ing 'but' in it.

Crabs said...

Tutor, as in, Jole? Mr. English person? ( ) Those are nice?

Crab the brackets are are paranthasis, 'but' is where paranthetical comes in.
