    Oh, I was stationed in Okinawa for 6th months as artillery attachment to 12th Marines. Guess how many times I surfed...zero. The opportunity to surf was never really possible. The marine corps is no joke, it will change your life. Unfortunately there's not a lot of time to consider surfing, at least not until after first 2 years. Its possible but not really part of your mentality as a junior marine. Sad answer, but honest.

    the last night before I left Colorado for the coast, we went to a "woodsie". it's a party up in the mountains, usually on private property. My best friend and I got tore up and decided to join the marines on the buddy system. But gawd intervened. A friend of mine from a fort in Alabama, 2 years prior, heard me laughing in a VW camper and walked in. He bought a motorcycle and left his parents in Dugway Utah, and was invited to the party by someone he met in Colo Spgs. We told him we were going to go into town and join up. He reminded me of everything we saw growing up. We stayed at the party. Remember not to drink, chirren.
    That's how yer ol uncle Chich became a surfer.

    Coast Guard (Guardies) have walk-in access to the point from the lighthouse....it's theirs, not the Navy's. Navy station is further inside, but have roads that lead to the point. I worked there during 81-82 and scored back in the day. The place is a zoo now, it looks like a harbor full of zodiacs on any south swell. Way better to take a boat to any of the 6-8 reefs between this place and the unnamed semi-point south of Nazboland.

    This is a special that was done on surfing at Pt Mugu, Ventura County, CA.
    Included are the Navy's annual surf completion, wounded warrior surfing program, and some goofy body boarding stuff with the tattooed gal hosting this show.

If you're thinking about joining,surf spots shouldn't really be on your radar, youl have bigger things to deal with. And if you join the corps, they tell you where you are going, not the other way around. Good luck. If you want to know what being a marine is all about, i wrote a book about my time in Iraq, its called The Song Each Bullet Sings. If you get it, let me know. If not, god bless for your commitment to this country.

    Just picked up your book after reading this post and your book is truly a good read! Thank you for your service and writings.

    I wonder if anyone ever surfed Diego Garcia; that place looks amazing for driving, fishing, etc. The gov barely acknowledges that it exists. It's in the Indian Ocean if you've never heard of it.

    Find the beach break you like and move there. Don't rely on the military. I haven't heard of any good breaks in Afghanistan. Besides, it's easier to surf with all of your limbs attached.
