El Porto

Meet at El Porto at the north end of the beach near lifeguard tower 45. Email me through meetup.com if interested.

 

 

--Edit: This meetup was suggested by Ron and more than 3 people signed up. It will not be a good beginner meetup, maybe too big/steep for the foamies/funboards, for that you might want to go to sunset.  It will probably be a good shortboard day, maybe a bit of a workout, and crowded, but there will be lots of waves to go around.  I'll probably get in the water before 8 but will wear a watch and come out to meet people at tower 45 around 8:30.

As noted in a comment, I'm planning on checking out this event at Shaper Supply Co in Mar Vista after the surf: http://shapersupplyco.createsend1.com/t/ViewEmail/j/A81178D2B7393EEE/.  It's a cool shop where you can build a professional surfboard repair kit, rent shaping bays with equipment, and buy blanks.  They'll have bbq, live music, live shaping, and screen printing.

    I was there with Sam and missed you guys too, boo...maybe we should figure out a "sign" if we don't have our flag up. I'll think of something!

      Oh, yeah, I guess I should have read a little more closely! Also, I think I paddled right past you! Next time, then. E.

    anyone want to carpool? I know of a good place in venice blvd off lincoln where we can all park safely, I have a jeep with space for 3 or 4 more riders and their boards

    • David A.

      ok, so Al, Kathryn and Ty are all carpooling with me.
      I'll be parked at 589 Venice Blvd. you can google map your way to it. There's plenty of parking. I'll be in a burgundy (dark purple, some may say brown) jeep cherokee 92 with a roof rack. I'll be there at 8. We will leave shortly after to make it to el porto at 8:30.
      I don't want to put my phone number here for obvious reasons.

      for those who are carpooling with me. I'll only wait until 8:15. So be there! You will see me parked out front.

    Quick question where do you guys surf at Venice beach? Is there an adress I can punch into me gps??

    It's getting bigger on saturday, surfline says 3-4 but you can guarantee head high surf or bigger. Looks like a nice crossed up combo swell (2ft 16s SSW (203°) + 2ft 20s WNW (285°) and another 2ft of wind swell. I might want to get in the water a little earlier to catch some offshore wind and less crowd. After the surf anyone want to check this out? Looks pretty cool: http://shapersupplyco.createsend1.com/t/ViewEmail/j/A81178D2B7393EEE/

      Sunset should get good exposure to the SW swell but the tide will be way too high in the morning. it might be good in the afternoon if the wind is manageable.

    • David A.

      yep, I agreed completely with him, and that's why I removed my comment. I may go to sunset after I surf with you guys if I still have energy and the wind is behaving

    595 Venice Blvd. and 589 Venice Blvd. They are Mars Body Shop and Blur Studio. I used to work at Blur and know for a fact that they share parking spots and never check (mars only checks the 5 spots right next to their door, the others are free game)
    I say we meet at 8:30 or earlier if you all want to.

    1 · April 3, 2013

    • David A.

      then anyone who wants to carpool let's meet at 8

      1 · April 3, 2013

  • Ron

    All ... I've changed the time to 8:30am to give us all a better chance to get parking. Let me know if that will be a problem for anybody.

    April 3, 2013

  • Ron changed the time from 9:00 AM to 8:30 AM
