The Inertia

After a controversial and unprecedented Internet rally began last week via Reddit to make Lunada Bay, an historically localized surf spot in Palos Verdes, a friendlier place to beachgoers, the initiative has proceeded peacefully according to reports. News outlets, visiting surfers, spectators and police have also arrived on the scene to enjoy the waves and ensure the safety of those in attendance.

“Everyone can blame me for this. I don’t even care,” Christopher Taloa, who claims to be the event organizer, told KTLA. “As far as I’m concerned, there are so many people just in this neighborhood alone who want to surf here, and they can’t because they’re scared.”

At 2 PM, there were about 50 people on the beach and less than 10 people in the water.

Stay tuned for a more in-depth report.
