Surf is up at the Breakwater and Pier!

You couldn’t pay me enough money to get in the ocean after a big rain in Los Angeles, but if swimming in trash and live spores is your thing, the Pier and Venice Breakwater have some very rideable “big” surf right now!

Surfline is saying it is 5-8 ft head high to 3 ft overhead with occasional 10 ft sets. Check out the Venice Live HD Cam, you can control it!

Have fun and wrap your body in saran wrap if you go out! Stay away from the hepatitis!
