El P Files

Saturday morning was sort of a rough and tumble sesh at El Porto.  There was serious wind kicking up some chop, and really strong current that we were battling all morning.  We got some sweet rides, and that was all good, but what I really wanted to report about was the dead freaking goat on the beach.  The dead goat with out a head that is.  I think this was around 9 am, and we allowed ourselves to be carried pretty far north.  We decided that rather than paddle all the way back to where we started, we’d get out and walk back.  We left the water in front of the power plant, and there was a little excitement going on.  The body of a headless goat was laying on the beach.  No teeth marks, and no blood.  Totally bizarre.  Someone had notified the police, and they showed up to take the body away just as we were walking away from the scene.  So we don’t know what happened…Satanic ritual? El Chupacabra likes to snack on goats after a solid surf sesh? Who knows…I’m going with the Chupacabra theory.

    Weirder still, I can’t find anything in the news about any of this. Creepy.

    Saw the goat just south of the powerplant.. that was pretty sad. I usually do a little bit of trash pick up when walking south after drifting north to the jetty but I wasn’t about to touch the goat. It almost made me sick!

    There was almost no surf north of 45th street… best waves in my session came towards the end when my buddy and I decided to crack the line-up at 42nd St. before the meters kicked in. That was the mad move.

    Respect the beach.. Surf with Aloha.
