Northwest swell closes out the Ventura Pier. Current races through the pilings like the Rogue River, faster than Laird could paddle. Whenever the news decides to broadcast a large swell they close down the pier, post caution signs, and there are spectators all over the beach. The piers still open and only one man around to tell. I guess Dallas Rains didn’t see this one on the doppler. Luckily our news team caught this lonesome bystander on the biggest swell of 2012.
