Photo Walk Captures Fog Surfing in Imperial Beach

Fog surfing is all about hitting the waves when the thick and eerie fog is rolling in. The surf by the Imperial Beach Pier is a favorite among surfers and some mornings can get gloomy here. But the local surfers here have befriended the fog and its limited visibility.
Enjoy the hazy views from our lens, this time in b/w.

Surfing in the fog requires the surfers to know the waters. May Gray and June Gloom make the local surfers used to fog surfing.

Surfing in the fog means glassy barrels (a barrel refers to the hollow or hollow-faced portion of a wave that forms as the swell is breaking).
Some people don’t like to surf in the fog. Therefore, you can surf with a quality wave with a very limited crowd.

As it’s clearing up more surfers appear.
