A surfer runs along Fletcher Cove beach. The sandstone cliff to the right is natural and shows some erosion at the base. The cliff on the left is lined with a 40-foot-high sea wall. "We call it Solana Wall, not Solana Beach, because it's been so armored," said Julia Chunn-Heer, beach-preservation coordinator for the Surfrider Foundation, which argues that the beach belongs to everyone, not just those who can afford a front-row seat.
