One of the aspects of my surfing life that I failed to document was the vibrant beach scene at Hilton Beach during my years of surfing there.
An early morning session might bring a sighting of the former Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir taking a stroll with his bodyguard. He always returned my "boker tov" in a hale and hearty manner. So much for his bad reputation for public speaking.
In the afternoon MK Yossi Sarid liked to play backgammon in the shade of the lifeguard station.
I suspect there were plenty more big names around, not just politicians but celebrities of all stripes. I was generally focused on what was directly in front of me and I'm positive I missed all sorts of things.
