Windansea Aerial View (High Altitude Preview)
Hovering above the shack, I shot these photos from a much higher altitude than my other picture of Windansea. See the full resolution picture here.Windansea Beach is a popular surfer's beach that stretches south of Westbourne and north of Palamor. The name Windansea is also given to the neighborhood adjacent to the beach and comes from the name of a hotel that burned down in the 1940's. The main peak at Windansea is a classic reef break and has long been famous among the region's most skilled surfers for its reliable waves and consistently good form. The beach is not made for tourists having very limited parking, no bathrooms, showers or water fountains. The main cultural icon at windansea beach is a simple palm covered shack located in front of the main break and just below the narrow parking lot. "The Surf Shack at Windansea Beach" was designated as an historical landmark by the San Diego Historical Resources Board on May 27, 1998.
