Cooling off at Ocean Beach
Posted by George J Janczyn on August 25, 2009
Inland where we live the thermometer was promising 100 today and I read that there was supposed to be a decent long-period (16 sec) south swell at the beach, so I grabbed my video camera and headed for OB’s Dog Beach as it’s been a while. The air was refreshing with a cool breeze, the dogs were playing with their pals, and the surfers were definitely enjoying themselves.
I patched together a rough cut of footage, below . The action is pretty distant so I had to use all available camera zoom, which made for some shakiness since I wasn’t using a tripod. Sorry about that. It may feel like you’re getting battered by the waves. At the end is a shot panning to the east at the San Diego rivermouth.
By the way, you might check out the OB Rag. It does a pretty good job of keeping tabs on what’s going on in the neighborhood.
