Best Place to Stand-Up Paddle Into a Nuclear Intake Valve (2013)
Why wave at the late, never-great San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station from the freeway when you can stand-up paddle right past it? Start from the south end of Old Man's Surf Beach (a.k.a. San Onofre State Surfing Beach), and you can get a pretty close look at SoCal's grand experiment with nuclear energy. Of course, after the plant's ignominious closure, there's no danger of growing a third eye . . . we hope.
