Heading into the curl……or out of it?

Something seems to be wrong with this piece of art….

…I’ve never seen a surfer head into the ‘curl.’

That would be a death wish!

Usually, s(he) is coming out of it!

I think this says something about the market these days. How long can it go on? When will it stop? As I’ve said before…it will change either due to a man-made condition – like interest rates, or a nature-made condition, like an earthquake.

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
