Surreal Paipo Surfing in a Bathtub

Yes, nothing but a joke test after installation of forum s/w update.

I did surf at this break one time--by accident--from shore it appeared to only be 6-8 ft, breaking waaaaaa out there. It was a solid 18-20 ft, and a cloud set must have come through at 20-25 ft because it broke in the channel as we paddled in (4 guys on 2 boards and the board I was on was lost forever).

Confirmation that it worked after a reboot as well.

PHP now updated to 8.1x. Looks like everything is running smoothly.

My son taking off at Steps on his bodyboard a long time ago. We were there about ten minutes before paddling out to Tres Palmas on a nice 8-12 ft day with nobody else out. Maria's was packed.

Paddling back out on a small Pipeline day. "Better than it looked." Compliments of Neal Miyake's call and in-water photo by him.

Brian (from far end of Long Island, we met at our Villa in Puerto Rico during the early 90s) and I frequently would surf this break to avoid the nearby crowd. Now it is crowded: I have not ridden the break in 15+ years.

Nice vintage shots.
Do you need money to support infrastructure?
