Windansea Memorial Day

Memorial Day stimulates many memories.  At Windansea Beach in La Jolla a new tradition was started in 2010.  5/31/10 was a day of Aloha in honor of Emery Kauanui Jr. a pro surfer who died at age 24 on Memorial Day 2007. He was murdered by the La Jolla street gang, know as the Bird Rock Bandits.   A street fight outside his mom's house on Draper resulted in a fractured skull when his head hit the concrete.  5 local bullies went to the slammer. Click Bird Rock Bandits to review the case.

Windansea is a sweet reef break. Its really not much of a beach. It's more a series of secret rocky coves than a sandy playground.  The smoooooth sculptured rocks, ever-changing from the massive power of the Ocean create some tricky rips.  Its a highly localized break, but so far nobody has challenged us to fight.  The daily crew consists of a bunch of old-timers (mostly living in their vans), some post-yuppie beemer types, a few tatted out tweeker lookin' dudes (who don't surf) and plenty of super - steezy young groms.
