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?
