Bio-luminescent waves in Southern California

One of my google alerts caught my eye. Most of the time it is SPAM, but this actually hit the cool meter. Bio luminescent waves in Southern California. Cool Man!

This brief video is a short boarder rocking it on bio-luminescent waves in San Diego.

This is mission bay, a kayaker at night got this short film of how the water looks at night.

The glowing night-time ocean effect is attributed to red tide, or algae blooms in the ocean. This is apparently harmless, but very cool. Notice how that surfer was totally looking at his hands while he surfed?… We would need a lot of laundry detergent and blacklights to make this work on the Great Lakes. Not sure that is environmentally friendly. Looks like a good time to do night paddles for So Cal folks.
