It’s difficult to get to, with frequent riptides, and rock slides but in spite of, and maybe because of its challenges, Black’s Beach is a San Diego landmark. It’s the subject of a new documentary airing Thursday night on KPBS Television.

Black’s Beach is a two-and-a-half-mile long stretch located between Torrey Pines and Scripps Pier. And its unique characteristics have made it a favorite for surfers, nudists and scientists for decades.

Chris Boyd, producer and director of the documentary, "Black's Beach: San Diego, California," joins Midday Edition on Thursday.
