In light of recent events I felt compelled to share something which I kept seeing a few months back, and I think is appropriate.

I generally try and get a surf in before work (when I’m not too lazy) in the South Bay, Los Angeles.   Over the past few months before I’d paddle out, I would often notice something sticking up in the sand, right near the water.  I would see it almost every time I surfed, and at first didn’t even know what it was.  Upon a close inspection I saw it was a single crutch, stuck straight up in the sand, always in a different spot, but almost always present on a particular stretch of beach.  Once I figured out what it was, I started looking for it.  The crutch was a permanent fixture on the beach. I became intrigued with the owner of this crutch. A buddy of mine told me he surfed almost every morning and would get as close to the water as possible, bury the end of the crutch in the sand, and paddle out.  Truly inspirational. Here’s a video of him doing just that. Im curious to see him surf.

 

Although I have not actually met this man, nor even see him surf (Cool story Hansel, I know) the knowledge that he’s out there almost everyday makes me very hopeful for Andre. It also inspires me to be less lazy, lumpy and grumpy. I think the next time I see the lone crutch I must wait next to it, until the owner comes back to shake his hand and get his full story. Apparently he’s something of a legend at this beach, I’ll post something if I ever meet the man himself. I’m sure he’s…. how do you say? Strong.

The following video is also a good reminder of what we are helping raise money for, in terms of a functioning prosthesis. This company in Ventura makes custom solutions for different activities, and I think getting Andre a brand new ‘surf leg‘ is a great cause. I’ll be up in Santa Barbara this weekend, along with a decent crew of people to support Andre, and hopefully make some headway on our fund-raising plans. See y’all at OKR. -MOM

Wheeeeehoooooooo!!!

Fellow Ministers,

The time has come, the Super Important, World Premiere of ‘Townies Don’t Surf’. We failed mightily in securing a good viewing venue. Apparently the best surf video to come out of Mar Vista in the last 9 months doesn’t seem to carry much weight around these parts. Apparently, all the theaters are busy showing “Real Movies”.

Not to worry though, this will actually make for a good old fashioned Hootenanny at our humble residence. We will be hosting a viewing party at Beethoven St. this coming Saturday from 6:00pm-10pm. Whiskar will be provided to all guests, in jars.

Anyone in attendance is encouraged to bring a jug of their favorite moonshine, a few cold ones, or if you run over some meat on your way here, we can throw it on the grill. We will be BBQing at around 6:00pm.

There will be two showings of the film.

First Screening 8:00pm
Second Screening 9:00pm
Bowling 10:00pm

This will be a townie themed hootenanny, so dress appropriately. If anyone has a friend or two, bring them, as long as they’re kin!

Afterparty
We have three lanes reserved at Mar Vista Lanes at 10:00pm for those interested in throwing stones.

If you’re having a little trouble getting excited about a surf movie, made by two guys who don’t surf that good, maybe a few tarp tasties will get you in the mood. Scratching!!!!

WeeeeeeHoooooo!
