Coast Guard Rescues Surfer Near Ocean Beach

U.S. Coast Guard crews rescued a surfer in distress this afternoon beneath the Cliff House restaurant just north of Ocean Beach in San Francisco.

The Coast Guard received the initial call at 2:51 p.m. near the restaurant at 1090 Point Lobos Ave.

Coast Guard officials said the surfer was paddling out and experienced distress because of the waves and weather.

After being rescued, the Coast Guard’s medical crew examined the man and found him to be fatigued and cold but OK. The surfer refused any further medical attention.

The Coast Guard dispatched two 47-foot motor lifeboats to execute the rescue.
