Filmmaker Mingomatic has another drone video for us, this time giving us sweeping shots of California's coast. Watch beautiful waves roll against the shore, cruise over the Santa Monica Pier and Malibu's El Matador beach, and enjoy watching rushing roller coasters of the Santa Cruz Boardwalk from a very calm distance away. Fun fact: Santa Cruz's Giant Dipper roller coaster was built in 1924, and is a National Historic Landmark. It was built by Arthur Looff, son of Charles Looff, a carousel carver who built the Santa Monica Hippodrome, which houses the carousel, 100 years ago.
