Frequent poster from the OSP, Fossilgrom reports:

Frickin' rediculous last night... Started out typical enough - a few guys out for the first hour, but then the horde decended. They just kept filing down the path. By far the most people I have seen out at night - all fighting for crap surf - tumbling around in the white water - madcap group paddles for crumbly bumppy shite in the half dark - blatant disregard for any rule of law, and me in the middle of it all surfing blind and leashless with a 10ft, 30lb missle. The fact that no blood was inadvertantly spilled was sheer luck. Freak occurence? Or a horrifying view into the future of Oregon surfing?
