Me thinks someone’s “I will start surfing!” New Year’s resolution may have gone awry…
According to our friends over at SFAppeal, the SF Fire Department had to rescue a surfer who was stranded on the rocks near the Cliff House restaurant around 11:30 this morning.
“One of the surfers was pulled out a bit and the surfer made it to the rocks and was awaiting assistance,” fire spokeswoman Lt. Mindy Talmadge said.
A Coast Guard helicopter and small boat were called to the scene. Eventually the surfer (and board?) was airlifted to the shore around 12:15pm.
Watch video of the rescue and an interview with the surfer, Tim Terry, at KTVU.com.
Glad the surfer is ok! Let’s hope the sea lions and birds were hospitable during his visit. 😉
