Looks like local surfing hero Bobby Martinez is something of a life long Raider fan according to this article and video on Raiders.com. Good thing Bobby's surfing record doesn't mirror that of his favorite football team (2-7). One really has to appreciate Bobby's uniqueness here, when his fellow surfers are posing as rock stars on stage, he's getting himself on the field at football games.
Yesterday's Surge Wave
The LA Times has a tidbit about the surge wave that hit the Pacific Coast yesterday all the way down to Port San Luis.
Surges were observed from Port San Luis on the Central California coast to the Oregon border. In Crescent City, about 20 miles south of the Oregon border, harbor workers noticed a fast-moving current around mid-afternoon that harbormaster Richard Young described as a "river within the ocean." As the surge rushed out of the harbor, workers noticed that two floating docks in the inner basin were destroyed, Young said.
The Bachelor Casting Call
I could not make this up.
I am a casting producer with ABC's hit show "The Bachelor" and I am on the lookout for outstanding accomplished women who are surfers ! I would love to specially invite members of the Santa Barbara surfing to a casting event this Friday, Nov. 17th in Santa Barbara. Women must be 21 and, of course, single in order to be considered. View the flyer here.
