Jack O'Neill: your house will be safe

Jack O'Neill will build a seawall around his home in Pleasure Point, California.

The surfing legend and founder of O'Neill was granted permission to protect his house from the down-coast currents.

The famous construction will now be defended with a concrete wall that may be enough to make sure the 87-year-old surfer can sleep tight.

Jack O'Neill has lived in this house for 40 years.

The permission was voted unanimously by the California Coastal Commission.
