Though surfers flock to San Francisco's Ocean Beach when the waves are promising -- not too choppy -- a hardy crew head to the break under our famous bridge when conditions are right. I don't know what that means, but they do and there they were on a recent sunny afternoon.
There was a good deal of jockeying for position.
Then someone would catch a wave.
And eventually run out.
Hey -- don't ride all the way to rocks. As these waves hit, I was catching the spray myself standing on the break wall.
Gotta catch up with that board.
To cap off the somewhat surreal scene, this group of Civil War re-enactors were playing just behind me as I took these pictures, preparing for festivities at Fort Point under the bridge. Ah, San Francisco!
