But, due to the physical set-up of the spot, there's plenty of options for quality camera angles.

Cali by handle, Or Maria Pease if you knew her in person, succumbed to lung cancer. I had surfed with her many times at Ocean Beach with our very special crew. Maria was a very special person. She was absolutely fearless, and had the tenacity that it took to surf OB. I have seen some remarkable things out at OB, especially when it's gotten big.

This one won't be for everyone, but if you grew up in SoCal in the 80's this small stretch of beach between 52nd and 56th streets in Newport was the spot to be if you surfed.
