Surfing Dolphins Make a Splash in San Francisco

Posted By on Thu, Jan 10, 2013 at 9:06 AM

With all the recent (disturbing) talk about sex with dolphins, we thought we'd shift the narrative a bit, take the dolphin out of the bedroom and back to the ocean where it belongs.

The never-disappointing local nature photog David Cruz made it easy for us when he sent along these shots of dolphins surfing the swells at Sutro Baths earlier this week. According to Cruz, a half-dozen dolphins breached and stayed in the general area before heading north toward the Golden Gate.

Cruz explains that as of late, he's also spotted California Sea Lions and Harbor Seals at the same location, so keep your eyes peeled if you are near the Cliff House.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
