tu shea" I'm callled out" - On the Internet Its far to easy to anonymous I am not any kind of authority on this spot I grew up on Whidbey island and spent two years on Kauai where I learned how to surf. I never hit up the strait but I never experienced any kind of localism on Whidbey or even on Kauai. I just guess im kind of an anarchist and the whole aspect of not being able to surf somewhere caught my interest. I will definitely make my way out here my self to scope it out. Just from the little research I did it seemed like you could get away with it. I don’t meen to offend. I just kind of wanted to stir the pot to be perfectly honest. As far as localism in Washington, your from Washington your from Washington period. P.A. Whidbey, Westport we are the same state and we should unite. I’m sorry if I pissed anybody off I was really just killing time thanks for the fog idea too.

To anon Whitbey Boy.... - What's your problem anyway? Now you admit you've never tried surfing this spot, yet you talk like a total authority on it. What gives? You say you can paddle it "from a distance"... like from PA, about 1 mile accross, in the shipping lanes, and "out of sight of people" - like out of sight of the Lighthouse staff whose job it is to scan the area from on high to protect the very spit you claim is so easy to surf under the radar? They don't even allow pleasure kayakers NEAR the point - its protected for a fragile bird and other species. This is the primary function of their job and so they take it and their laws very seriously, as well as the fines... Try to access it, and tell us all what happens. Until then, you can talk all you want, but lack real-world (and legal) experience on the matter. The only way you can get away with it is under heavy fog - in which case you'd have to walk the 6 miles each way, as it would be too dangerous to paddle the wide channel in blinding fog - ships....

Whidbey? - If you are from Whidbey Island, what right do you have to come and surf PA? The guys on Whidbey Island have a reputation for bad localism. Is this true? If so, what gives you the right to surf in someone else's "turf" (by that reasoning)?
