A surfer’s-eye view of Ocean Beach

12:26 AM PDT on May 2, 2011

From SPUR:

Surfing requires keen observation of coastal processes and a deep and specific engagement with the landscape. At Ocean Beach, where SPUR is working to develop a long-term vision plan, no one is more aware of the complex forces shaping the coastline than the local surfing community. They are users, stewards, and passionate advocates on behalf of the open coast. Join Bill McLaughlin of the San Francisco chapter of the Surfrider Foundation at Ocean Beach, where he will help us interpret the seasonal patterns underlying the local winds, waves, currents and shoreline. He will share the forces that surfers read in the landscape and how they translate into both sport and stewardship.
