In what could make for a marathon day of fun, the nonprofit Surfrider Foundation is joining up with popular clothing and sports companies and the Chronic Cantina to host a fundraiser to help the nonprofit keep our oceans clean. “The owners, we love doing these events,” said Keith Scheinberg, co-owner of the Chronic Cantina in Costa Mesa’s Triangle Square.

. FOR THE RECORD: Monday?s article, ?Not a typical fundraiser,? misidentified the U.S. secretary of commerce as a state agency. . . . . . . . . Music blasted, fashion models walked the runway, and grown men and women sat in a kiddie pool at a Surfrider Foundation fundraiser at Triangle Square on Sunday. Chronic Cantina restaurant and bar took over the entire second story courtyard of Triangle Square, cordoning it off so they could set up couches, umbrellas and tents for surf industry sponsors and food vendors.

June Casagrande The Surfrider Foundation has found a way to turn vice into virtue. People who come to Margaritaville on Saturday for the concoctions will get to take part in a second guilty pleasure: "Casino Night." It's more innocent than it seems. The players of the Vegas-style games will compete for donated prizes instead of cash. At the same time, they will be helping one of Newport-Mesa's favorite causes. "It's all to help benefit water quality in the area," said Ray Halowski , a Surfrider Foundation spokesman, who concocted the event with Margaritaville general manager Steve Pickford.

If the office was empty Wednesday, it might have been because of International Surfing Day . The surfing conditions were meager - waves were only about a foot high at some spots in Newport Beach - but the dedicated took time out of their day. Celebrations were simple: "We're just surfing at River Jetties," said Frog House surf shop clerk Joe Huebner. The Newport Beach and Huntington Beach chapters of the Surfrider Foundation are planning a beach cleanup and other events Saturday morning at Huntington City Beach, in front of Huntington Street.

It was in his own backyard, but he knew nothing about it. When filmmaker Rich Reid spoke with his engineering buddy and Surfrider Foundation member Paul Jenkin, together they realized that the Ventura River was the lifeblood of their county and their neighbors, and few understand its importance. So the two set out make a film about the river and its watershed, and how important it is to residents. “Watershed Revolution” will appear this weekend at the Newport Beach Film Festival.

On the Orange County coast there are only a few rugged spots left — where the cliff falls into the Pacific or the beach is buffered by sage, not homes. One of those spots is Lower Trestles. This beach and surf break near San Clemente is even more special than the rest because of its world-class waves and its exotic (for Orange County) trek to the beach. It’s down a dirt path, across live railroad tracks and through the marshlands. Now, some locals fear that their special experience at Lowers will be ruined by conservationists, environmentalists and architects who want to build a new trail and to make the railroad crossing safe.

Last week I read a Orange County Local News Network article about Trestles. The gist was that the estimated 300,000 people that visit Trestles each year have to make a risky railroad track crossing and a coalition had been formed to construct a safer crossing for pedestrians and cyclists. Now I’ve never heard of surfers asking for anything to be made safer so was immediately skeptical and figured there had to be more to it. The “coalition” was identified as the Open Architecture Network, the San Onofre Foundation and the Surfrider Foundation, and they had opened a competition for architectural designs of the crossing structure.

Despite the great waves in Newport, Huntington and other Orange Coast spots, many surfers head south on big days to a famed break, Trestles. Part of the lure of surfing Trestles, which is near San Clemente and San Onofre State Beach, is its path to the beach. Surfers and beachgoers wind through marshlands and undeveloped coastal beauty for at least 10 minutes. Some trails are paved, others are not. Ultimately, they meet the coastal railroad tracks that give the break its name.

Braving soggy weather and toting metal trash pickers and plastic bags, more than 50 volunteers slogged through the streets of Newport Beach on Saturday to pick up trash out of gutters and on local beaches. The effort was part of the group ZeroTrash Newport’s fourth monthly First Saturday beach and street cleanup. “It’s pretty simple. We’re trying to promote personal responsibility,” said Eric Chevalier, one of the organizers of the Saturday cleanup effort.
