Northern California Surf Contest Goes Amuck



On Saturday a surf contest was held in Half Moon Bay, California. Things did not go well for the spectators. Watch the video on CNN.com

Three people were hospitalized with broken bones. I wonder if they have lawyered up yet?

In this video people on the bluff clap and cheer as small children are separated from their parents and swept into rocks and debris.

  2. You know, with global warming and the whole 2012 end of the world thing coming I bet the same "rouge wave" will wash away everyone in the Swamis parking lot during the contest if it happens.

  5. I thought law suites were only allowed on the second story of building along the 101?

  6. A nice fence at the bluff top, maybe chain link 8 feet would keep people safe. We could make it solid and charge people that want to see the contest a slight fee, $30.00 or so (cheaper than seaworld or the zoo)to walk down the stairs.

    After all we are renting our beach. Why should anyone see this thing for free?

  8. Parks and Rec. Commission meeting on Lindas Swamis proposal is Tuesday evening. Should be interesting to see what they say, although it won't matter as the Council does what it wants.

  9. Good point. Since when has the council majority of Danny, Jim, and Jerome ever cared about a commissions finding. Its a total waste of time.

  12. Parks and Rec Commisson this eve. There are 7 Commissioners and the vote was 5-2 for the Council to consider Linda's request for Swami's. Dr. Lori voted against it. Good for her. She is a woman or I would say she has balls.
