Paddle out for longtime Linda Mar surfer, Jim Franco
Jim Franco was the first photographer for the Pedro Point Surf Club and many longtime local surfers remember the photos he took as the best they had of them surfing. He was a Peninsula resident for many years known fondly by San Francisco students as the “Bug Man” for his work exterminating insects at city schools.
About eight months ago, Franco returned to the ocean after living in Las Vegas for about four years. He was the eighth fatality of the massive San Bruno explosion.
There will be a paddle out for him this Sat. Oct 16 at 1:30pm at Linda Mar Beach creek mouth, followed by burritos and tequila reception at La Playa.
