High Surf at Torrey Pines State Beach

With El Niño here, Southern California has been experiencing some high surf and tides. On December 12, 2015, Tim Forkes went to Torrey Pines State Beach in La Jolla, CA to record the waves and the tide.

Torrey Pines Beach3Along with the beachgoers were the usual birds and some unusual ones: motorized hang gliders.

The video was shot about 1 p.m., just as the high tide was going out. Even at that time the tide and surf was covering the entire beach, which when normal, rarely gets within 100 feet of the rocky berm. We can estimate the tide was at approximately 2.5 feet.

Below is the video from the Torrey Pines.

Los Angeles Post-Examiner staff

We are not the typical news website – nor do we wish to be. We will be offering more than news and blogs, but an opportunity for fiction writers, poets, comedians and musicians to showcase their talent and skills. Much like when the Beatles formed Apple Corps Ltd, they opened the door to all kinds of inspiring talent that never really got a shot. From that came the likes of James Taylor and others. We hope by providing a similar approach we can shine the light on some tremendous undiscovered talent and at the same time offer some familiar voices who live in Los Angeles and beyond.
