    Hello,

    Nice capture of one of my favorite places to look at the views in San Francisco Bay. San Francisco has a million places to visit and see the fabulous views of the city, harbor, Bay Area and points East. As far as the Western view is concerned, it is ocean and the rugged cliffs along a lot of the shoreline.

    The neat thing about this spot is that most people will go to the other places and overlook this serene spot to park and enjoy the rushing tides as they go out and in toward the bay at odd hours of the day. Unless the visitor’s tourist guide directs you to this place, it is slightly hidden on the lower elevations below the famed Golden Gate Bridge.

    When my brother was in the UCSF College Hospital getting one of his radical, radiation treatments, I flew up there to visit for a few days and bring him home to Long Beach. That trip was going to be a surf trip as the days were long and he told me to bring my surfboard for some good waves at this spot. Fort point is well known in the surf communities today, but back then, only a few hardcore guys were usually out surfing these unusual waves. The more popular spots were just around the bridge inlet at Ocean Beach.

    We found this place in 1966 during one of our Northern Cal photoshoot trips. It was a nice quiet place for a lunch and nap. Yes, even 20 somethings liked naps. It is a perfect place for a hot rod photo shoot and possible ending location for a city, hot rod run. I am sure it has been done many times.

    Why is this place referred to as being weird? The swell comes up the coast, wraps around the point, goes under the bridge and starts breaking, with long lines rideable most of the way to shore. But, the days I was there, the larger take off waves started breaking under the Golden Gate and wrapped around to end up in front of the parked cars.

    The other odd thing is, just a short distance into the bay, the outgoing current or incoming tide flows at such a speed as it becomes a little scary. I am sure there are stories of people getting caught in that current and being swept around the point. Not my cup of tea.

    So, did I surf that spot? When I realized how many days and what the rental car was going to be, I left my surfboard at home. No way was a 6’ 8” tri fin going to fit in a small 3 cylinder, powered convertible with two guys in front, plus the travel bags. It was also 4 days not 7 days and time was running fast during those 2 full days between the airport runs.
