What Is It?

Some sort of sea slug or hare, I suppose... This washed up on the beach while I was surf fishing in So. Cal.... It had a dark back that felt and looked like thick leather... The underside was firm but soft, with a "foot" for holding the bottom or mobility...

Could it be the remains of a geoduck?

Don't think so... It looked pretty complete...

 

I'm thinking maybe a sea hare that's been dead for a while, and toughened up... I put it back in the water and it bobbed like a cork, so It probably is starting to decompose and full of gas... It sure couldn't stay down, like that, if alive, even with it's "foot" to attach to  the bottom...

Any better ideas, let me know...

Looks kinda like an abalone without the shell to me

If it was more round, and didn't have the leathery top, I would agree with you... Maybe a deformed, non-shelled abalone?...

Butch, that’s a CA Sea Hare (Aplysia californica). It is indeed a species of sea slug. 

Boy does no one read, I already identified it. I have seen numerous ones washed up on the beach from still alive to fully dead, as well as crawling around the tide pools when I am reef fishing during neg tides. Pretty common up here in the Malibu area especially after a high swell event coincides with a neg tide as they get beat up off the shallow reefs.
