Happy Halloween!

Trick Or Treat?!...

True or False:  There will no no surf to speak of until New Years Eve?!...

That's a trick question... thankfully!...

SMS Report, Oct. 19, 2013: The Photos & Commentary

What started out as a stunning sunny day was replaced rapidly in the early afternoon by a thick fog bank along Santa Monica South.  Well, see for yourself above... and below.

First time we've seen this vehicle below. This same company has its own ambulance which was parked in the lot at CSHQ as part of the event safety management for the absolutely ginormous event on the Santa Monica Pier yesterday afternoon that ran from 2 pm - 10 pm and included some big name comedians, entertainment and music. Probably 10,000 plus people in attendance with the line to get in stretching from the entrance on the pier all the way up to Ocean Ave. and even wrapped around below The Lobster Pot on the incline roadway under the pier leading down to PCH.

"The 2013 Rookie Swim; The Report & Photos", by OLS Harry Varnas

Just in from OLS Harry Varnas!

"Great turnout at this years rookie swim.  A big thanks to all the parents, coaches, mentors and alumni who have supported these future rookies.  A lot of support was on hand with many parents in attendance.  Some of the parents were just as fired up, and nervous, prior to the start.

Here are some candid shots that captured the mood that morning.  The set up crew arrived at 5 am.  The training crew along with the fire dept personnel have worked many hours in preparation for the test.  And thanks to the future rookies for hanging in there for a long day.

Unofficially, the top 10 finishers were.

1.  Johnathan Diaz
2.  Robert Smith
3.  Brian Wadely
4.  Tristan Marsh
5.  Jane Miller
6.  Matthew Alberti
7.  Bradley Rava
8.  Thomas Ryan
9.  Joseph Anderson
10. Francis Gon-Gibs
