Well, the san andreas fault, which is the threat for California earthquakes, is inland. So, I dont think this would trigger any tsunamis. But if there was an earthquake anywhere in the pacific, you are going to want to be on alert for tsunamis.
cool... so if a disaster like the SF quake 100 years ago happened, it would be ok to be in the lineup snagging waves? actually i think that quake's epicenter was offshore is there any possibility for a quake to erupt off the coast of southern california?
