Trestleglyphs–The Writings of Surfers

13 04 2010

Surfers are people of few words.  But, when they use them, they go deep—sometimes.

For decades, the trail to Trestles has been the surfer’s canvas.  The names have changed, but the messages have carried age old themes.

Somebody Must Have Lost Some Money Last Year

One has to burn the images into photos, because the paraffin messages evaporate with the next hot day.  How I wish I had carried a camera years ago.  So many wise adages gone forever.  But, let’s take a look at a few of the current memoirs.

There seems to be a great deal of negative energy coming from some.  Others build on each other–kooks writing about kooks.  Others are written by friends about friends, but want to sound like they hold a grudge.  The best ones are random–something  about clothing styles?

About A Crowd Of Kooks

Golf Shirts or Wetsuits?

I think you get the message.
