In countries ruled by the rich, these things don't happen. Billionaires are taken to court for owing and excluding everyone illegally. Surfrider takes on the Goliath and wins. They even got their half million dollar legal bill paid by the loser. Great day to be an American and a surfer.

It's an impressive victory.  Of course it's all a matter of California's distinctive state laws & regulations.

The legal battle over the beach isn't over yet, as Khosla could appeal to either the state or U.S. Supreme Court.


You'd hope that after going 0-for-2 he'd give up, but he's probably hoping to negotiate a huge-profit settlement with someone, like selling it to the state.

Bueutiful beach though -- looks like one of those great places to get eaten by a shark!

Interesting story. That photo of the cliffs and beach is a good one. Yeah for Surfrider!
