Ahhh the telephone surf report. If it was strangely late of not updated at all = there must be waves, go surf. Thanks to modern phones I only have 5 phone numbers memorized parents, grandparents, wife, work and the WRV surf report (both of them) which I haven't called in a decade or more. Come to think of it I probably would have been better off just going to the beach to check the surf since it took so long to get through to the number. I must've called that number thousands of times in my youth.
