Surfer Near The Imperial Beach Pier
This morning, about ten o’clock I rode down to the beach. There were a lot of surfers and some HUGE waves coming in. I found out that about an hour after I left the beach was closed due to sewage contamination.

Enjoying The End Of A Great Ride
The surfer above didn’t fall off his board, he launched himself off after a good long ride. That is always a fun thing to watch because it’s kind of the surfer version of doing a burnout after a win.

What a bummer for everyone in these photos that just a little bit later, the life guards would be calling them all in to shore and delivering the bad news. There were a lot of surfers surfing very close to the pier, which seems a little risky to me but then again, I’m not a surfer.
