Around 2:51pm today, authorities received a call about surfer in distress in the waters off of Ocean Beach near the Cliff House.
The Coast Guard dispatched two, 47-foot motor boats to rescue the surfer who they say was fatigued because of the waves and the weather.
The surfer was cold but ok according to Coast Guard medical examiners, and refused any further medical attention once he was back on shore.
We’re not sure who would want to surf on a day like today with the heavy rains and wind. Not to mention that due to the rain, North Ocean Beach was closed due to Combined Sewer Discharge. Ick.
