They'll definitely be a zoner party sometime this year. I shouldn't have too hard a time convincing the boss...she was famous for her parties when were kids and still loves a good one....she used to do bands on the roof, 500+ people kind of affairs. She gave me a send off party when I went to live with Bill as a stupid teenager. It took police from 7 surrounding towns to break it up..... ;)

No we're keeping the old one. Jacqui is going to rent it from us until she can afford it or until we croak whichever comes first.... :P. The plan is to keep this until we fully retire then sell it and buy a cottage walking distance to the beach a little further south. We won't be here year round at that point. Travel the country a bit in the winters with a camper for a year or two and find another cottage someplace warm....split our time after that between them....the typical snowbird thing. Midcoast Florida likely...hanging with DW and the rest of the crew down there.... :)

I've thought about kiteboarding but I'd probably kill myself or lose some pieces.

I actually hope to go out in those kind of conditions far more often now that I'm close....that was shortly after the 1st CCBC. I was just  sitting here thinking what a crazy transformation that video represents.  And it was conditions not much milder than those where I found the most therapy....loved my choppy workouts. A little more than a year before that I was 80 lbs (at least) heavier and had a hard time friggin walking sometimes. This is the 1st time I've told anyone this, not even my wife,  but I cried on the water that day. Before Bill gave me that 12-6 in the video I had pretty much resigned myself to a somewhat shitty existence. I tried hard to keep a good face on it but it truly sucked and nothing the docs or PT had done worked. I remember sitting on my board in the middle of the chaos....and I had never in my life felt so alive. It was overwhelming...I thought about where I'd been and where I was and started to laugh....until I started to cry. Anyone that knows me will tell you I'm an emotional sap. But there are only a handfull of times in my life I've ever felt so thankful. Looking forward to being able to grab more of that.

Read most of it but stopped reading at " zoner party! "
And now that you've given the address " red dot "  The preperations can begin. 😁
Seriously though, congratulations on the new purchase stoneaxe and like taunt said, " take up kite-surfing so you can make the most of those windy days."

Can't get over the idea that I'm going to be c lose to my go to spot for most of my paddling...especially in the early days. I'm more apt to go look for surf these days but have many awesome memories out there.

Some pics
A panorama, some surf shots..head high or so that day but a bit mushy, a sunset of one of the houses on the outer beach, a closeup of the point in the video during my typical CCBC training paddle 12 mile loop, another CCBC training paddle with some of the 2011 crew into the harbor, some pics my daughter took during a snowstorm...i always called it proof that sasquatch SUPs.

Congrats, what a nice spot!  I live about a mile from Pleasure Point in Santa Cruz as the crow flies, but in Cali, of course, you add hundreds of dollars a square foot as you get closer to the coast, and add another couple hundred if you are right on the ocean.  Looks like a short hoof and you are on sand.

Congrats! A someone who recently moved closer to shore I can understand your excitement. A big garage is still my dream as I had to sacrifice it (for the water view, though) ...

Wow... I don't know what I like more..... your new house or seeing that old video again! (the essence of what SUP means to so many of us)

Super stoked for you to have made this move Bobby! I wish you and your awesome family the happiest of times in the new SUP haven.
I'm pretty sure that the 1st time I met you was when you let me demo your Element at that same beach..... Your sacred ground!

Very cool... I am happy to assist in any way I can, since I am totally devoid of anything resembling responsibility.  I have a rather large van.
SUP & primal.... a good beginning
