The male surfer was spotted floating in the water at about 1 p.m. by someone who brought him into shore, called 911 and started doing CPR, San Francisco fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge said.

Paramedics responded and took the surfer to the University of California at San Francisco Medical Center, Talmadge said. She did not know his condition.
