Bioluminescent Surfing

A strong red tide along the San Diego County coastline this fall caused a neon blue bioluminescence. It's visible at night as tiny light-producing organisms get stirred up as the waves break. Would have been amazing to see.

I've only ever seen marine bioluminescence once, while on a sea kayaking trip in Prince William Sound. It was more of a green color, and nowhere near this intense. I'd like to see it again...
