Back to Beach to Pick Up Surfboard

Got up at 6 this morning, got to Limantour Beach around 7 and started the 2-mile beach trek to pick up my surfboard. For how it got there (I buried it in the sand 2 weeks ago), click here and here. I put my 2-wheel surfboard carrier in a backpack so I wouldn’t have to drag it after me. Here are pics of it. I had marked the spot in the lee of a north/south sand dune with 2 pieces of driftwood. Everythng was as I left it. 2 miles back to truck, enjoying many birds and a few sea lions in surf zone.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. so THATS why people carry metal detectors…but instead of metal…they're surfboard detectors.

    Now I'll never go back to the beach the same way again. Imagine all the things people bury in the sand.

    Hi Lloyd,

    I've recently bought your book on Tiny Homes which was really inspiring.

    This was after my own tiny home project which is here http://www.greenbutterfly.org/projects/straw-bale-building/
    and now lived in by Anita's son Cai quite legally as he is still part of her household i.e. he goes to the main house to cook and wash.

    Best wishes

    Frank
