We hear it when the surfing superstars of the world make their little comments about the waves in Huntington Beach. They say it all the time, and they were saying it during the U.S. Open a few weeks ago. After Lakey Peterson won the women's title, she said: "The final was really slow and I was pretty bummed because I wish we both could have got some really good waves. I'm so stoked and I really wanted to win on a high note. " Granted, the waves aren't always slammin' like the North Shore in the wintertime, but still, it gets a little old. So I had to chuckle a little bit when I read that the Billabong Pro in Tahiti, the latest stop on the men's Assn.

It's safe to say the football is secure with Talalelei Teaupa. The day after he plays tailback for Newport Harbor High on Friday nights, the 17-year-old plays with a knife on fire. Holding onto the ball is easy when compared to how Teaupa handles a machete engulfed in flames at each end. Teaupa is a Samoan fire knife dancer on the weekends. You've probably seen one before if you've been to a luau in Hawaii. Picture a bare-chested dancer twirling, throwing and catching a flaming knife and that's Teaupa.

Hoag Memorial Hospital's "Luau For Life" was a big hit with local families. More than 300 guests joined the fun at the Hyatt Newporter for a Saturday evening aglow with tiki torches, showing off party attire that was strictly Hawaiian. Amid the hulas and hoopla, organizers raised $20,000 for Hoag's Cancer Center. The evening was designed, in part, to help sponsor the man of the hour, Mike Rogers, in the "Paddle for the Cure" benefit, set for Aug. 27. Rogers will participate in a 32-mile paddle race from Catalina Island to Manhattan Beach to raise additional money to fight cancer.
