The below article was published in 1980 by Surfer Magazine. The article describes the beach between 54st and 56st lifeguard towers in Newport Beach as The Hottest 100 Yards in the surfing. It holds true to that name today. Enjoy

A new addition at HQ. The quote by Jack Kerouac says….Happy. Just in my swim shorts, barefooted, wild-haired, in the red fire dark, singing, swigging wine, spitting, jumping, running, that’s the way to live.

The Starfish Flower Cactus on our patio have been blooming several of these flowers over the past two months. These flowers bud for several weeks and when they bloom, the flower only last two or so days and attracts lots of fly’s.

If you missed the HB Airshow last weekend don’t let that happen next year. The jets flew right over HQ several times and we saw one jet punch the sound barrier.

Mutant Thanksgiving 2015

Posted: 11/20/2015 by goodie in HQ

Yes, we are having a Mutant Thanksgiving party this year but no, I can not post this year’s poster on my site due to content; look for it up at HQ. We will be deep frying turkeys and having lots to drink. See you at 6:30 on this coming Wednesday the 25th. BYOB and a 5 dollar donation to charity.

Mutant Thanksgiving

Reported shark encounter with a surfer near Santa Ana River Jetties. Beach was still closed as of this morning with lifeguards making announcements over their loudspeakers. Also strange to note that all lifeguard towers were displaying the red flag after news of a shark in the water. The TV helicopters were above for a few hours as well. Over the past weekend I had a friend tell me he had seen a large fin out in front of HQ.

Costa gonna knock you out

All for fun rough housing with Costa resulted in a head wound for Eli. I guess they connected heads just right and it popped an old stitches scar right open. Both Eli and Costa are fine and it was a freak accident!
