Doc,
Seems there has been a lot of debate lately about posting pics of OR spots...I think you may have even weighed in on it. I personally don't care much about it normally but this spot? It's bad enough that someone posted it elsewhere. Just sayin'.

I'll pick up scraps there!

Well...
I spoke to the person that took the pic...
Asked if they minded my posting it...
They didn't...
But asked that I don't name the spot...
I can think of a few spots that will offer a view and angle like the one in the pic.
Anyway, yes...if I included landmarks and crowing about spot x then it'd be far out of line...
So...sorry if it offends.

Well, you are much more seasoned explorer than I but landmarks or not that pic is a giveaway. And I think it probably doesn't belong on either webpage...regardless of who snapped it. But its just my opinion.

This pic is only a giveaway if you've been to the spot and seen the view. And by then you can see the potential whether you catch it firing or not. My two cents...

I wish I knew where that was...

Well for those that know and apparetnly were not there that day, the pic (which was removed from the osp) will definately plant the seed to check it next time. After all its not really about the spots in Oregon, they are all know for the most part, it's about the sand and what spot has it in the right places. Things turn off and on from year to year and from my experiences, you can surf a spot with out a crowd for days, but once the word gets out it can crowd up real fast.We live and die by the sand here.
