we had something similar happen here in 2018. things definitely changed..
Tragic...surfed the pit a lot back in the day.got chased out one time by the “ landlord” a calm,glassy overcast dark grey day.water was slick and murky. So many surf spots in that coastal zone that are spooky, especially on the days with the conditions I described...
Condolences to the family.
The creek that lets out right there was flowing pretty heavy all night before and through that morning.
Must have been really murky runoff.
Might have contributed to this incident?
So I am assuming that the previous death that has been referred to in the media was the goof ball gal who swam with the sea lions in Avila? What was that 2007 or so? And am I correct in thinking this attack was closer to Atascadero State Beach than the actual "Rock"? Gonna see how good my memory is; Chrisp; Is that the creek where the Oil Pier was? What was it? Toro creek? My memory fails.
That which can be assorted without evidence was read in an illegal magazine.
Sad. Yes, things are changing. This is happening more often not to mention the number of sightings. I heard this and the first name that came to mind was chrisp. So I sent a holiday greetings in disguise to make sure you're alright.... Mike
Changing water temps., shifts in ocean currents, new migration patterns, 100+ surfers in a line-up...
"Sh!t happens" becomes the new normal.
Global human population:
1960 = 3 billion
2021 = 7.87 billion
According to a distinguished Harvard Univ. geneticist, 33 out of 65 credible scientific estimates place Earth's carrying capacity at no more than 8 billion humans.
I'll pick this up... 'The Pit' is practically a stone's throw from the beach at 'The Rock.' There is a creek there (Morro Creek) with dirt parking lots on either side.
The lady was attacked and killed in August, 2003.
There have been a number of shark attacks and sightings locally in fairly recent times.
The old pier was at Toro Creek - taken out by large surf in the early 80s.
Come on John! Is that pic of the red board for real. Was that the board? We used to surf the River/Creek (San Luis) after a big rain in Avila. It had the best shape around, but man was it murky/brown. Considering all the activity around SLO County the past few years, I wouldn't even think about it now. Oh yeah I remeber the Pit now, parking lot, high school etc. Usually passed on the pit, because it was a pit(wave wise).
