KEYT showed a video of the Goleta Pier getting washed away?! Did anyone else see it? I can't find the video online.

The sand berm in front of the yacht club has been breached, parking lot is closed at the entrance. The harbor lot is open but Leadbetter parking lot towards Shoreline cafe is closed.

And it's awesome to see the power of the waves hitting the breakwater.

Gaviota Pier has been partly taken down, maybe that's what you saw.

KEYT reported that employees of the Beachside Bar-Cafe at Goleta beach were injured by rogue waves. One of them was pulled under the pier by the tide. Another was hospitalized after a wave slammed them against a door.

SB Co of Emergency Management has closed Goleta Beach Park to protect public due to high surf and storm conditions.

We went out to Goleta beach to see the waves after the first down pour this morning. Road was blocked off. Most of the creeks in the area are close to their banks from what we can see. We were there yesterday too and watched the slough water rushing towards the ocean. That area now appears to be covered with water, didn't see any sand from where we were. Two boats washed up to the right side of the pier. It was amazing to see how many people were pulled over and taking in the sights.

No there are pictures on the KEYT site and a friend posted video of a portion of Gaviota Pier breaking off and washing away on Facebook. It has definitely sustained major damage.

When the tide was high this morning, water was sweeping over the beach into the parking lot at the end of Linden Ave in Carp, then flowing down Linden a hundred yards to the low point where the storm drain is. Lots of brown foam, no mocha. There was some flow into the State Park beach parking area. The peaks of the waves were as high as the beach dunes. Awesome!

If the Gaviota pier and hoist is damaged that should make the people at Hollister Ranch really happy.

Just a friends photo on FB of the Gaviota pier, everything past the lift is gone.

MESARATS. I was thinking the same thing. Selfish surfers.

Not all Hollister Ranch owners are surfers. Nor are all surfers selfish; often quite the opposite

I've read numerous references to a "rogue wave" in today's various Edhat postings. Just as a small educational point, these aren't "rogue waves". A rogue wave is generally a single atypical large wave generally far out to sea. (Technically, it's a wave whose height is more than twice the significant wave height (SWH), which is itself defined as the mean of the largest third of waves in a wave record. Therefore rogue waves are not necessarily the biggest waves found at sea; they are, rather, surprisingly large waves for a given sea state.)
