It's arguable that there is no better way to watch a surf flick than to sit at the sand's edge after sunset. Beyond the big-screen action, those rolling ocean waves are just a few feet away. That's why the Family Movie Nite film series in Peninsula Park at the base of the Balboa Pier has been such a summer success. "They just come in droves," said Mary Lonich, executive director of the Balboa Performing Arts Theater foundation, who puts on the Family Movie Nite. "We heard nothing, nothing but good news."

Andrew Edwards This summer, thousands will gas up their cars and battle their way down the freeways to nearby beaches. But for some, that short ride won't suffice. They need to go beyond the Orange Curtain in the search of waves. "I just get a real joy out of experiencing the different cultures," said surf traveler T.K. Brimer.

Starting a surf or skate clothing company can be all about who you know and the politics of the industry, Hawaii natives Sean Brady and Adam Paddock learned after a trip to a 2005 action-sports retailer expo. They toured the rows of companies that had booths at the trade show and wondered why some of the smaller companies weren't blowing up. "We thought, 'We should start a store up and carry some of these lines,' " said Brady, who now lives in Newport Beach. "And the idea was born."

Trent Jackson only had enough time to answer his phone before his plane took off from Dallas on Thursday night. The coach and players from his boys' team, the Balboa Bay Volleyball Club 14 Hurley, couldn't talk. It was understandable, and they really didn't have to say much, anyway. That's because Balboa Bay let its play do the talking at the USA Volleyball Junior National Championships by winning the gold medal in the 14-year-old open division in Dallas. Balboa Bay claimed the title after sweeping Pacific Palisades Quiksilver, 25-19, 25-18, in the best-of-three format.

Only a child would get a pleasant response from the chief executive of Volcom clothing after telling him that with a $180-million market value, his company can afford to donate stuff to a sixth-grade class. The company’s value is more than double that, but that’s beside the point. Within days, teacher Marc Africano’s sixth graders at Newport Heights Elementary had a box of Volcom goodies.
