Porto used to be more laid back....older and beginning surfers. The Pier had some gnarly currents and if you were gong to shoot through the pier, it was a good idea to now what you were doing.
The surf teams (RB, Mira Costa and Aviation all had them...I think South Torrance too0 would compete 100 yards south of the MB Pier.
Man, good days....
My Mom lives in Hollywood, so I take my kids to visit her every year: We stay at the Sea Sprite in Hermosa...it's like stepping back into the 60s....MB has gotten way too upscale, I couldn't afford to live there.
I traded 2 hour commutes (one way) for 15 minutes, a 2500 sq ft home for one that was 4500 sq ft (with pool) for half the mortgage payment, schools I couldn't afford that couldn't teach my kids, for great (and inexpensive) schools...I miss the surf though, dude...you can't surf the Ohio River.
I grew up in Manhattan Beach...went to Aviation High School...didn't play uke then, played sax and clarinet...used to play a lot of jazz at the clubs at the bottom of Beach Blvd...I think they are also gone now
