These photos are of an old friend and Goleta boy, Paul Baragona, at Sands on
Christmas day, 1976. Usually a Haskells regular, Paul and his brother Matt
went to Sands this day to get some surf shots.
Although leashes were available, no self respecting local would be caught
using one. Besides, the ocassional swim to the beach for a board kept the
lineup from getting too crowded. Doesn’t look too crowded…..
Check the classic Yater Paul’s sporting; single fin, yellow. He bought it used for $35!
The guy he’s chatting with on the beach is some dude named David Puu.
Paul’s still surfing today, living in Central California, but surfing Goleta whenever he can.
Thanks for the photos Paul.
