I posted about the Venice Pier a little over a year ago. Tuesday I checked it out again. The day was sunnier, but not as clear. But the surf below was big and bad.
The waves were not curving, but simply crashing down like a waterfall.
There are surfers (black spots) above and below this wall of water.
This pier is much less flashy than the Santa Monica pier. The surf pictures in this post were taken off the left side.
