"Taravals" - Editors. Taraval is not a real surf spot, always tide-drained, swirly mess. People can see your car from the highways, so surfing is claimed. Really, i'm not gay, but the best bj i've ever gotten was from a small, balding man. Closing my eyes, it was Jenna with sandpaper strips abover her lips. No holding back! You don't have to be queer to feel that good. Face flushed, ultra-calm-"hun, Taraval's was good to me again. Don't worry about your promise tonight, I'm going to bed". Lot's of people feel this is a gay amnesty zone, so the more the better.

- Show the Love man.. Its the Taraval Way.... About all the trannies up here... I hardly doubt that one any day of the year you can't find a peak all to yourself at OB. There so much room.......

The meaner locals moved into the bay... - Seal Rock used to have tons of sea lions, which means, literally, tons of Great White Sharks. However, the sea lions have decided to move in at the boat harbor, and take over a bunch of docs. I hope the Whites went with them...Both of the above are by far the meanest locals at SF.
