sports water sports surfing
Board surfing was always limited to those days I could borrow someone else's board.
Much more common was body surfing... a sport I still enjoy where ever I find a beach with sufficient waves.
I've body surfed most of the beaches in Southern California and hit other, more worldly, beaches in places like Majorca, Spain and Timmendorpherstrand, Germany."

My first car, "Plymouth Rock," and surfing with a borrowed board, Malibu, California - 1964
I rescued this 1939 Chevy (right) from the junk yard for $200, primered it, and put "Burbank Beach Patrol" on the door for kicks.
The car barely ran, had to be pushed to start, and had a residential light switch instead of a key for the ignition.
If I remember, it never made it to the beach, but was a lot of fun for a few weeks cruising Bob's Big Boy in Studio City.
