It took a week to ten days from the date of the official lockdown
before all our outdoor pursuits were banned in NZ.....

However people are still tramping camping and surfing.....
and getting arrested and charged if caught.....

While on grocery runs, I've been stopped and questioned twice since the lockdown began.....

With Easter this weekend there are police road blocks all over the place stopping folks travelling too their traditional long weekend getaway(s).....

These folks don't realize or don't care that if they keep flouting the rules, the jumpy Government will break out enforced curfews.....

LAFD responds after Steve-O duct tapes himself to Hollywood billboard to promote special

Image

Steve-O taped himself up to a billboard in Hollywood as part of a publicity stunt on Thursday morning, prompting a response from the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The “Jackass” star and television personality, known for his wild stunts and pranks, began livestreaming himself this morning on his YouTube channel. Steve-O was duct taped to a billboard in the 1700 block of Cahuenga Boulevard that promoted his upcoming multimedia special, Gnarly.

“I’m attached to a billboard right now … and want to emphasize that a team of real professionals rigged everything safely,” he assured fans in an Instagram post. “There is zero chance of me falling, and it’s important to me that we not waste any valuable city resources on this.”

But at 9:35 a.m., LAFD personnel and local law enforcement responded to bring down the well-known prankster, calling the situation “an apparent single patient behavior emergency,” according to a Fire Department alert.

At least one lane of Cahuenga was closed during the operation, impacting traffic in the area, according to LAFD.

Firefighters used a ladder to help him off the billboard and he was safely down by around 10:20 a.m., according to Sky5 video.

Steve-O, clad only in a diaper at the time, was then placed in a wheelchair and examined by fire personnel, the aerial footage showed. He was released soon after.

The Los Angeles Police Department told KTLA that Steve-O had rented the billboard and, as he wasn’t trespassing, no crime was committed.

The performer, whose real name is Steven Glover, was previously arrested in connection with a different aerial stunt in Hollywood in 2015.

On Aug. 9 of that year, Steve-O climbed an approximately 100-foot-tall construction crane and shot fireworks off of it in an apparent protest against SeaWorld, which he streamed live on his Facebook page.

He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and temporarily ordered to stay out of Hollywood after pleading no contest to two misdemeanors.

Smaller bodysurfing waves, mostly here.

Until you hear the Wedge is 20ft +, and on a rare(once every 10 years or so) S/SE swell then...

Image
this can happen.
I guess it's legal to surf the left inside the harbor cause surfers ride waves on both side of the jetty.

see video

Hurricane Marie swell 2014 - https://youtu.be/31TSnsj9LKY

note- The Wedge was 25ft on 4th of July the year, but the CDM jetty did not break at all.

Satellite Image Captures the Long Plume of Wildfire Smoke Drifting Over California


Smoke from wildfires as far away as north of the Bay Area contributed to poor air quality in Southern California, where skies took on an eerie orange glow Thursday as temperatures continued to sizzle.

NBC Los Angeles logoSatellite Image Captures the Long Plume of Wildfire Smoke Drifting Over California

More than 360 fires are burning across California.
A satellite image captured Wednesday Aug. 19, 2020 shows smoke from wildfires in the Bay Area drifting south.

Several fires in the Greater Bay Area joined to form wildfire complexes that have devastated the region. Homes burned, hundreds of people are under evacuation orders and at least one person has died due to the devastating fires burning in extreme summer heat.

The fires and other blazes closer to Southern California, including the Lake Fire north of Los Angeles, have diminished air quality. A dramatic satellite image captured Wednesday shows the thick plume of smoke drifting south over a widespread part of Central California and toward Los Angeles.
