Atmosphere

This is a well known hangout of all the Encinitas locals. Stretchmark was always crowded with the young families from 1960 to 1975. The new restaurants that were built in the area changed the hangout, but the surf is still the same.

Cadillac Jeannie - Hey all you old surfing dudes. Lets not forget the days of Cadillac Jeannie and Leucadia Harold they contributed to the forklure of the North County area and added color to the year of 1960. Hanging ten (toes) was a common sight in those days.
