The Death Of Ghost Trees
In a battle over the use of personal water crafts (PWCs) in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) ruled that starting in March 2009 PWCs will be banned throughout the 276-mile sanctuary. The Sanctuary houses famed spots such as Maverick’s, Moss Landing, and of course, the ill-fated Ghost Trees. With Ghost Trees being a tow-in only surf spot, the rock-laden jut of NorCal coast off one of the most famous golf courses in America will soon perish as a spot. Though some of the world’s greatest hellmen charged Ghost Trees for the last eight years or so, it will take a certified nutcase to try and paddle out without the assistance of ski.
