Surf’s up, again – winter swell season delivers with more to come

Arms feeling like spaghetti yet? Ears waterlogged? Maybe taking full advantage of that, um, “work-from-home” situation that allows for some extra time to catch waves? The winter surf season has been on full throttle in recent weeks, with the ocean delivering action-packed conditions along the Southern California coastline. Searching for bombing barrels? You can find them. Want peaky, punchy waves? No shortage of those either. A surfer nearly gets caught in a closing wave just north of the Hu...

Big surf heading to Southern California will bring exciting, but dangerous, start to new year

It will be a wild ride into 2021, with big surf heading to Southern California in the days ahead.

A surfer gets some air off off a wave just south of the Huntington Beach Pier in Huntington Beach on the last day of 2020, Thursday, December 31, as another run of big swell...

Efforts to clean trash from beaches are hampered by stay-at-home orders

The season’s “first flush” of rain water gushing down rivers and through storm drains brings with it heaps of trash and debris that lands at the coast, littering beaches and washing out to sea. Typically, groups are armed with bags and gloves, ready to gather by the hundreds to scoop up the detritus before it threatens wildlife and becomes part of the ocean. A shoe and other pieces of trash lay in the water near the beach at the mouth of the Santa Ana River in Huntington Beach on Thursday, D...

Chad and JT’s excellent adventure: Comics make viral video about Surf City’s ‘mask shortage’

In a YouTube video currently making gnarly waves, two surfer dudes stroll around the pier plaza offering complimentary face masks. “We’re here in Huntington Beach to solve the mask shortage,” explains the blond guy (as opposed to brunet guy). “As you can see, no one here has a mask, but we brought our own supply to fix the problem.” Just a few days after its release, the five-minute caper has already snagged more than 4 million views.

Seal Beach opens Monday; Los Angeles beaches will re-open Wednesday

Seal Beach surfer Marc Moore had an entire beach day planned out Monday, May 11, to mark the first day of his beloved beach opening back up. “I’m going for the full beach experience,” he said on Monday, the first day people have been allowed back on the beach in the small coastal town in six weeks. First, his plan was to run on the soft sand for a bit of exercise.

Earth Day celebrates 50 years: Ways to mark the milestone from or near home

Fifty years ago, millions of protesters hit the streets to take a stand with a common goal: to protect the Earth. It was the start to the modern environmental movement, and for five decades each year on April 22, countless people have spent this quasi-holiday celebrating nature by doing clean ups at beaches and parks and by learning or teaching about nature and all its wonder with events big and small throughout the world. The Aquarium of the Pacific is adding new content daily for kids and ...

Expert warns surfers and outdoor enthusiasts of added risks for coronavirus spread

Surfers are grappling with a decision: with an early-season south swell hitting local beaches, should they scout out a still-open beach and risk riding waves? An expert warns that might not be a good idea, with new studies coming out about coronavirus that could be troubling for not only surfing, but other outdoor activities such as running and biking in breezy environments. Coronavirus could be much smaller than previously believed and aerosolized as a fine spray – meaning it lasts longer in th...

Drone photos show deserted, ‘eerie’ beaches as crowds cease during coronavirus shutdown

It was an eerie sight looking out at the vast Southern California sand usually jam-packed with people enjoying spring break this time of year. Instead, Huntington Beach’s popular shoreline was deserted – like a scene from the ‘Twilight Zone’ – with a few scattered people staying to themselves, said Steve Farnsworth, who rode his bike to the coast  to scope out what it looked like this week as parking lots and the pier were shut down to curb crowds. The beach and pier are closed due to the co...

Little old surfers from Pasadena helped stoke the sport

What a wonderful surprise to read in your paper (Aug. 19) beach reporter Laylan Connelly’s story about California’s original surf shops. Having paddled around on surfboards for almost 70 years, I have witnessed huge changes in the activity called surfing. My ocean activities began at Hermosa Beach during WWII using a damp pillow case: Making sure it was completely wet, you then walked into the water to chest depth, opened the case and held it open into the wind so it inflated. You clamped it shu...

The state now has an official ‘California Surfing Day’ for people to ‘stop, drop and surf’

If an employee or student is missing on Sept. 20, you might want to look for signs they’ve been surfing: sandy feet, the smell of surf wax, or salt water dripping from their noses. In fact, they may have a state-recognized excuse for their absence: California Surfing Day is now, officially, a thing. A group of dignitaries and surfers gathered on the Huntington Beach Pier on Tuesday to proclaim “California Surfing Day,” which recently passed both the Assembly and Senate as a resolution (SCR 122)....

Illegal mufflers are roaring as load as airplanes, but law enforcement crackdown is difficult

In a city that claims to lead the charge against crazy-loud and illegal mufflers, I sit in a hotel being interviewed by a television producer about teen suicide. But time and again, the cameraman is forced to halt tape about this serious and somber subject when someone roars by on a motorcycle or in a muscle car. Yes, the windows are double-pane and closed.
