Surfers Crowd San Diego’s Newly Reopened Pacific Beach

San Diego County reopened many of its beaches for recreation at sunrise on Monday, lifting restrictions on swimmers, surfers, kayakers and paddle-boarders, but continuing to prohibit boating. Less than an hour after the restrictions were lifted, Pacific Beach was already crowded with surfers looking to catch what we're going to charitably assume was their first wave in weeks.

Active recreation is allowed at the reopened beaches, but social distancing guidelines are still in place, and relaxing on the beach is not permitted. For more information on which of San Diego's recreation areas are open and what activities are allowed, see the county's recently-released plan for reopening beaches here.
