A surfing competition scheduled to take place off the coast of Imperial Beach and Tijuana Sunday was postponed Saturday due to high surf and a sewage flow.
“Due to dangerously high surf and flooding of Monument Road from a sewage flow, the Surfrider Foundation of San Diego No Border Sewage Committee has decided to postpone the “Surf the Border” surf contest,” Spokeswoman Nairin Collardey said. “We have yet to determine a postponement date, but will be deciding this in the coming weeks. We apologize for any inconveniences due to this last minute decision.”
Both organizations had been testing the waters for contamination on both sides of the border since Oct. 26, according to a joint statement. The surf competitions were intended to raise awareness about issues impacting the oceans, waves and beaches in the border region and to help inspire communities on both sides of the border to protect the quality of the ocean, organizers said.
