Triangular bruise on back, at spinal base, no injury, spent time in water. Causes?

I noticed a triangular bruise on my 13 year old son s back, right at the base of his spine . He said it doesn t hurt and he doesn t remember getting hit by anything. He did spend the day in the ocean today. We are on vacation and are trying to determine if we should get it looked at or if it can wait until we get home.
