Figured since I was on the Mike Doyle subject I might as well post another "caveman" shot...this is a shot for an ad in the 60's.

Great pic. Had a beer with him last time I was in Mex and he talked some good story about living in Oregon for several years. My favorite thing he said was: "On maps Oregon seems like it would have so many great surf spots, but when you actually go there, there's always big rock in the middle of it!" He then went on to say that there are more good breaks in San Diego county than the whole Oregon Coast. But I reminded him that there are less surfers in the state of Oregon than in La Jolla alone, so it kind of balances out.

It is best for all of us that Mike Doyle talks down Oregon. Besides I bet he never made the hike into you know where.

I've surfed with Doyle and I am amazed at what a powerful paddler he still is.
