Violencia en Baja
November 14 2007 | Jim's Blog,
I've been trekking to Baja, like every decent SoCal surfer worth their salt, for years. Few things compare to a minimal drive, a rural setup and clean and (relatively) uncrowded waves.
That said, I've been hearing more and more stories about violence. A good friend got robbed at gunpoint at Quatros Casas... the stories are getting too frequent, too violent, too paramilitary-esque. I'm on a Baja hiatus for at least a few months...
Good piece on this in today's UT. Pass it on to other surfers you know...
