A Red Tide Is Causing The Surf To Glow In California! (PHOTOS)

Ever heard of a red tide? We hadn't either but we LOVE the photos! 

A red tide is apparently an algae bloom filled with bioluminescent phytoplankton and it has been lighting up the ocean from La Jolla to Encinitas since Monday. It's a stretch of about 18 miles! The micro-organisms light up along the face of the wave when it crashes near the shore.

The last red tide was in September 2013.
