A little short story of our previous swell a couple weeks back. Photo is of John Cunningham courtesy of Laguna Independent newspaper. The story goes a little like this. This local spot was working pretty good during the swell but the line up was crowded and the locals were getting a little up tight understandable so. So Cunningham shows up mid day proceeds to paddle out past everyone wearing a child's Rubber Ducky inflatable around his waist. A big bomb closeout set comes in and Cunningham proceeds to take off with rubber ducky and all. The funny part is that the photo was captured by the local newspaper and posted with the quote from Cunningham "safety first." Hats off to JC for putting the swell hype in perspective and not taking it all to seriously. Hope I did not butcher the story to bad.
