I want to do this

You might recall how I talked about the intense underwater smell associated with plankton blooms in the springtime. And I’ve swam at night and once or twice even surfed at night and love the experience particularly of night swimming, as I’ve previously said. (The real difficulty with night surfing is to see the approaching waves).

The following video is of a red tide in San Diego last week, a plankton bloom, which caused a more intense bio-luminescence¬†in the water than any I’ve ever seen, and is a stunning video of night surfing luminescent waves.
