To help promote the title sponsor, players on the stadium court at the AVP Championships near the Huntington Beach Pier crammed their lengthy, sweaty bodies into small convertible smart cars that served as benches that must have lacked supreme comfort. Turns out, uncomfortable was a fitting theme for both the top-seeded men's and women's teams, both of which included a Costa Mesa resident. The men's duo of Costa Mesa's Jake Gibb and Casey Patterson of Huntington Beach, as well as the favored women's tandem of Costa Mesa's April Ross and Kerri Walsh Jennings were both upset in the semifinals on Sunday.

When covering breaking news, landmarks help to tell readers where the event occurred. In many cases, the environment around the police tape is hard to distinguish from any other place in a city. In photographer Kent Treptow's picture of the scene of a car chase that ended with a suicide near the foot of the Huntington Beach Pier, at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Main Street, fewer landmarks would be better known. The Ruby's restaurant at the end of the pier and the lifeguard headquarters at its foot give readers a sense of exactly where the events took place.

In my time, I have surfed in a lot of events, some for money and fame, not to mention ratings points. However, the one that stands out the most to me happened just this past weekend at the Huntington Beach Pier. What makes a great event? Normally, the prize money, the venue and the waves. However, this time, it was the greatest for an entirely different reason — for the cause. The Project Save Our Surf 24-hour surfing marathon was about help for the right cause — one dear enough to have people participating in 24 hours straight of surfing, raising money for the Surfrider Foundation and Heal the Bay. This event was co-hosted by past surfing champions PT Townend and Shaun Tomson, along with actress Tanna Frederick, and saw a host of professional athletes, actors, actresses, musicians and the general public, who had a chance to participate along with some of their greatest heroes.
