Oceanside Labor Day Pier Swim


Labor Day is basically a going away party, a fond farewell to summer.  But in Oceanside it is the site of the longest annual rough water swim in the West, the Oceanside Labor Day Pier Swim.

Nearly 500 competitors dove into the Pacific Ocean Monday morning hoping to make the 1.1 mile swim around the Oceanside Pier.  But rough waters were a game changer.  Elevated surf and strong rip currents forced more than 300 participants back to shore.
