September 2nd, 2008, was the last day for the Windansea parking lot, one of the most historic and sacred places in all of surfdom. I asked Tom Ortner how he felt: "Very sad" was his answer. Here are a few scenes from the last day of the lot as it has been known for well over 60 years. The guardrail was put in in 1962, before that it was telephone poles as a barrier. "Progress" creeps on us and before we know it our heritage is lost forever.
