Does anybody remember a dilapidated old pier on Ocean Beach at about Balboa Street? I remember going to Playland and seeing that thing jutting into the waves, wondering what it was, what it did and how long it had been there. It looked pretty old.

Later on, during the surfing era of the 60s, I wondered if any surfers ever "shot" that pier.
