At one point didn't the pier extend off Seaward ave?
I was on the Ventura Pier in the late 80's during a big swell. The next day we checked the surf and most of the pier was gone. What was the date when the storm took the pier?
Ventura Pier - another off Seaward Avenue
Someone asked if "at one point, did the pier extend off Seaward Avenue.
The answer is no. When my family moved to the Pierpont area during the summer of 1961, there were two piers -- the "big pier" was what we called the one that still exists, and a "little pier" was a shorter version of same that extended off of Seaward Avenue. It was probably just a fishing pier, and pretty flimsy -- must have washed away in a storm within 1-2 years, or possibly torn down because it was no longer safe.
Storm causes pier and beach destruction
by Jay Guthrie
I'm trying too find out what year and how much damage was done after this storm hit in the late 60's or early 70's when the Ventura pier was rebuilt. It also Made Deep pools along the shore. I was a kid then and use too go fishing off the pier every weekend except that week. The storm was bad enough too damage property from Oxnard too Santa Barbra.
