After being damaged by large waves on Saturday, the OB Pier had re-opened by Sunday afternoon.

The damage was sufficient to close the famous icon of OB. Part of a railing was cracked and crews had replaced the broken wood and repaired the damaged electrical wires by late afternoon on Sunday, January 24th.

Sgt. Jon Vipond of San Diego Lifeguards told NBC 7:

“Generally the waves will hit the Ocean Beach Pier at an angle from the south so the rail on the southside of the pier was hit by some waves and there’s some minor damage.”

The waves that damaged the pier were reportedly over 10 feet
