  1. Great review Dawn!

    FYI: The wetsuit Bing was wearing in the foto of him (on the board he gave you) at Conejo was an O’neil shortjohn, circa 1968-1970. I had a few of those suits back then. We would custom order them through Sterling Santley at Surfglass. The Aussies had them with 4″ longer legs and double nylon with colors, they fit way better. AND, since Nat, Ted and Wayne were doing it, we had to as well!

    Fond memories. My cousin, Gary, in Vista California, had some beautiful Bing Pintails and Featherweights at the family ranch in the 60’s. I wonder if he still has them? He gave me my first surfboard in 1966. It was a 9’6″ Surfboards Hawaii. Wish I still had it, I cut it down and made a 6’8″ mini-gun out of it. It was my second shape.


  2. Hello Dawn, your willingness to be honest with your true inner self is inspiring. And a power greater than ourselves will lead all, “On the Journey,” to a happy-joyous-free life. I am 61. Stopped Surfing and living in Santa Cruz, CA. in 1989 to pursue a new career in Alaska.
    Back home again on my own. Started surfing again. Cowells Beach again, where I started at age 14. Love it!
    Was lucky enough to reconnect with old friends and found a spot on a, GO PRO support boat a few weeks ago. The Mavericks International Competition was great.
    Your shared Journey reminds me how grateful I am to have health, true friends. Trust the process.
    Thank you for your honesty,

    • Thanks for reaching out Bill. SO COOL that you got to be right there at the competition! I watched some of the highlights afterwards (couldn’t stream it live in Mexico) and it looked like a great day for the event. So great that you are back in the water!! Alaska waves a little chilly for you? πŸ˜‰ Yes, “trust” is my word for 2014 and it seems that is the message I continue to get from folks like yourself. I hope you’ll keep reading and keep giving me your feedback. It’s tough to reveal some of this stuff, but the benefits are significant. I feel better after each post. Be well my friend!

  3. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY to all, especially the single people, you are not alone on the journey.

    Everything has its Time
    For everything there is a season,
    and a time for every matter under heaven:

    a time to be born,
    and a time to die;
    a time to plant,
    and a time to pluck up what is planted;
    a time to kill,
    and a time to heal;
    a time to break down,
    and a time to build up;
    a time to weep,
    and a time to laugh;
    a time to mourn,
    and a time to dance;
    a time to throw away stones,
    and a time to gather stones together;
    a time to embrace,
    and a time to refrain from embracing;
    a time to seek,
    and a time to lose;
    a time to keep,
    and a time to throw away;
    a time to tear,
    and a time to sew;
    a time to keep silence,
    and a time to speak;
    a time to love,
    and a time to hate;
    a time for war,
    and a time for peace.

  4. Hi Dawn, read your most resent story. Your honesty keeps me following. Only fair I share honestly. (I don’t know how blogging works but am hopeful you receive this message) The online dating circuit. Been there. People lie. And yes I too felt pissed off and in the end more alone. Example: (Me) We finally meet for coffee! A face to face encounter! Woo-Hoo! ….. (Me) What do you mean your still married and have an agreement with your out-of-area husband! CHECK PLEASE! Happened again and again. Different stories same end result. People lie. Done with online for me.
    I have been single since 2006. But time off has been good for me. But the last three years really lonely. Heart and soul and the physical contact with a woman I respect and wants to really know me and I her. Unconditional friendship, seeing my good side and not so good side when I get selfish.
    I also have parameters. Honesty is attractive. Off the wall and way off the wall humor attractive. Laugh at our selves attractive. Getting to know a woman so well, one word, a knowing look or smile, yes and a frown. HA!
    I have been in the company of a woman lately I find very attractive, physically and soulfully. But it’s strange we are both 55+ healthy, smile and laugh a lot. And our young hot bods just don’t exist any more. But when she smiles and laughs I see the 25 year old. No shit for real!
    So by this time you may think,ok, Bill got a girl. Wrong. No lies, no, oh didn’t I mention months ago…. Just, “I” wasn’t expecting to fall in love as time ticked by and our trust and friendship grew. She is still in love with an old flame who claims he doesn’t wish a relationship anymore, but always calls her. “Keeps her hanging on🎢.” Asshole X!
    Can’t blame her. I been there. For years I been there. Yuck.
    So what can I do? I love her now. Damn. Yeah I can leave. Back to lonely and no friendship? I never have found love when I actively looked for it through self promotion. Never.
    Back to, “what now?” Well I am lucky, people I don’t know I am not afraid to walk up and say, “Hello!”
    What do I do about her? I guess as I have said before, “trust the process.”
    Timing is not guaranteed for each person.
    So what do I do in the meantime? Pine away? No. Stay connected with friends male and female, don’t isolate Bill! Say “hello”to someone today. Again, “trust the process.”
    Hello out there! Who wants to go surfing with an “Old Fart!” HA!
    Santa Cruz yesterday….78 shoulder high!
    Dawn, no worries I know it’s right around the corner for you.
    PS: Stick with California men. The rest of the world thinks we’re all nuts anyway. West coast weirdo’s!

  5. Hi Dawn, Thank you for your most recent article regarding your personal experience with COVID19 and the Mexico Health Authorities. You might remember me and my wife Kitty, we rented a casita from you at Perfecta a few years ago and we traded a directional kiteboard with you for the lodging, the 2nd or 3rd time we were there. We sold Capt Kirks Resort in La Ventana to our ex-partners last year but still own a house there, and decided not to return to Baja Sur this March for many of the reasons you write about in the article. Talk about a classic Catch 22, yikes! I’ve had Chronic Lyme Disease for 10 years which hammered my immune system and COVID19 could easily put me on the wrong side of the dirt, so we are being as careful as possible and are hunkered down on the Central Coast of California, where luckily we can still use the beach and get in the water and paddle out, at least for the time being. Good news that it sounds like you are on the mend, and hopefully didn’t wind up inadvertently infecting others before you figured it out on your own – do you know if anyone in the medical community there has done any tracing?
    Thanks again and Best Wishes,
    Kirk Robinson (Capt Kirk)

    • Hi Kirk!! Good to hear from you!
      Sorry to hear about your lymes disease. It is a brutal one!! You are wise to stay isolated. In answer to your question, I am waiting for an epidemiologist to call me to interview me after the fact, I think in an attempt to determine where I might have picked the virus up, IF I picked it up. The more I research this, the more I think it was the virus, but it’s impossible to know for certain. Right now I’m dealing with some brutal side effects from the inhaler I was prescribed (racing heart, muscle weakness, tastebuds completely messed up which has ruined food for me, one of my big pleasures). My resting heart rate is normally down around 58 beats a minute and it was over 90 today. I couldn’t get an accurate count because it was too fast! Now it’s down to 80. If one thing doesn’t get you, the treatment for it might!! Stay safe and I hope you’ll have some time to read more of my adventures on here.

Tell me what you think. Seriously. I can take it.
