I guess I've been here long enough to stop gawking at everything (well, almost everything) and now the pictures will start having more people in them and less "sights". Mark and Komron live upstairs and own a coffee shop down at the Balboa Pier (about 1 mile down the beach). Derek lives the next block over and is some kind of financial wizard. Derek has lived on the peninsula his entire life and Mark and Komron moved here last year from Texas. It's a real melting pot and it's nice to have a little gang to hang out here with. The Wedge is a famous bodysurfing spot down the street. Waves come in from two angles and colide to make a perfect 20' tube !! Too scary for me but fun to watch. Pictures don't do justice to size and power of waves but it is simply awesome!! More picts on the way I'm sure.
