- Great day with more waves than I could paddle for. Paddled out at Private's and went to Shark Cove. Great day with incoming tide.

Can't we all get along? - Whoa, Little Eva,Where are the girls and old guys to surf if not at Privates? Grow up, try to fit in, and remember your sister and ageing father before you heap youthful ire on innocents. Welcome to Privates.

By Little Eva , 09-04-2006

"Privates" refers to nudist pudenda - A spot where an experienced surfer must question his values on a quotidian basis. Date-surfing ClubEd postgrads, Paradise pussy-power powder puff princesses, ageing wannabes and neverweres crowd the lineup. But perchance the must pittiable species in evedence are the newbie grouproot foursone interloper types who employ "retro" pig noserider leashless boredom boards to frolick, and mayhaps catch the eye of aquatic snatch-pie. This too shall pass. Come alone and you will be welcomed; cellphone rendevous SUV-prone instalocal titanic riding soulho's might best be served at Pleasure Pizza or 38th.

What kooks... - Privates is not a core break...if you get hassled there, you either are a big KOOK and do not know what you are doing. Know the rules, be respectful and know your limits and you will be fine...one of the so called dicks on the East Side...
