I could watch the guys (that's all I saw today) at the Venice Skateboard Plaza all day, but it was breezy today so we went over to board walk to mingle with the flow of tourists and locals.
I ran down to the beach yesterday morning hoping to see some of the big waves that were predicted. They were bigger and rougher than normal, but not huge. Maybe 5 or 6 feet.
This fisherman was all decked out in what liked new gear. As I left this spot to see the surfers better, I tried to talk to him, but it appeared he didn't speak English.
The pelicans were patrolling the beach side of the waves too.
I watched the surfers for a while and got some video that was more surf than surfers. So I decided to switch back to still.
How I wish I'd kept the video on. This guy zigged and zagged at the front of the crest from left to right and then just a bit after this shot the wave curled over him. He came out after that ride. He wasn't going to get anything better than that. He told me when he was in the curl he got a bit concerned because he didn't know how deep it w
We biked back this afternoon, but there was a pretty stiff breeze. Plenty of folks were taking advantage of it.
I only saw this guy with the surfboard walking the kite along the beach. Didn't see him with it in the water.
And on this one I photo-shopped in a close-up of the sand. This is looking north to the Santa Monica mountains.
Then we joined the crowd on the Venice boardwalk. This is a wall above the shops along the boardwalk.
And if you need more than oxygen . . .
The doctor was in here. Or at least this man in a white lab coat.
Ice cream will do for this guy.
