Many years ago the charts showed a channel with two buoys basically
parallel to Ocean Beach about 1/4 mile or more offshore. I don't know if it is shown anymore? If not, probably a good thing. You are right, when it gets rough the surf line goes way out. From my house in the Sunset district I could watch
the seas break over the buoys, don't know how they stayed in place.
I am very familiar with Bonita Channel, again you are right, it can get very nasty and you are pinned right close to the beach. In any event, whether they tried to come up inside or got knocked down coming down the ship channel, too bad. As you said, "should have", there is always another day,
except for them.
