Blacks Key For Sale On Craigslist

Monday, March 30th, 2009

I just found this listing for a fabled Black’s key on Craigslist. The price? 2,000 dollars, no pass included, so park at your own risk.

I’m moving, and no longer will need my key to the gate at Blacks. This is your one and only chance to get a key. This is just the key, no pass included. Park at your own risk.

Keywords: Black’s, Blacks, Beach, Key, Surf, Surfboard, Al Merrick, Skip Frye, Pavel, Vintage, la Jolla, Fish, Bonzer, Campbell Brothers, Liddle, Hull, Displacement, Egg,

* Location: San Diego

A famous long boarder’s brother once told me how he found one in the lock. I heard another guy tell a story about a ‘friend’ who ‘just happened to look’ in the back of a truck parked at the bottom and see a set of keys there. He promptly relieved the keychain of the rare one. You know, as cool as it would be to have a key, I’d rather take the goat.

Do you have a black’s key story?

Reuben Margolin’s Kinetic Wave Sculptures

Saturday, March 28th, 2009

Soon as I hit it big, I’m going to commission Reuben Margolin to build me one of his kinetic wave sculptures. But first, we’ll need to go for a surf. My favorites are at 5:38 and 7:12.

Fabulous Sleds

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

The sleds temporarily occupying Shelter Surf Shopseem a bit shinier than normal. Maggie visited the other week and stopped to fondle the sweetest collection of hulls, authentic bonzers, junod singles, hall quads and various other shingles that simply need a wave with which to mingle.

If you read the erBB enough, eventually you’ll find something as good as this wedged in between all the right wing propoganda posts:

Justin and Skip Frye, high fiving. Very brave as Ian noted today… after what happened to Rob Machado. Poor Rob Mob. Dude could have gone places. EDIT: This is a reference to him hi5ing Slater and technically losing a contest and title to priority. AFAIK Rob is fine.
