The last few days have seen no shortage of swell across Southern California. If you live anywhere between Santa Barbara and Imperial Beach, you know this. If there were studies of such things, we’d guess productivity levels across the region are in decline as everyone and their mother is calling in sick, or otherwise shirking responsibilities for a dip in the brine.
Apparently, even non-human residents are aware it’s pumping. Yesterday in Ventura, Craig Badger was filming Thousand Oaks firefighter Alden Blair when out of nowhere a pod of dolphins pops up on the shoulder to join him. Blair doesn’t seem bummed he’s getting burned by a few porpoises. Quite the opposite. He seems psyched! Not to mention, the dude’s a firefighter. He of all people knows how to deal with a burn.
