Coastal Commission Chairman Holds Shady Meetings

Steve Kinsey will likely sit out Banning Ranch vote after "forgetting" meetings with developers

Remember a couple months back when members of the California Coastal Commission (CCC), in a thinly-veiled power grab by influential developers (allegedly), voted to oust their longtime executive director and champion of the environment, Charles Lester? If you watched the live feed of the hearings that day, you may remember a Larry Bird lookalike running

Liz Clark: Still Living Your Dream

Sailing and surfing in paradise for a decade

Over the Falls: The Glorious Ignominy!

Saluting the most sickening feeling in surf

Watch this sadistic little ditty a few times and you’ll notice a few distinct styles of disaster trips over the falls. There’s the “No, Wait, Shit, I Don’t Really Want This One!” (Most embarrassing). There’s the “High-line Barrel To Upside-Down Lipride Into Oblivion” (Awesome). I really enjoy the “Poorly-Thought-Out Lip Bash To Backwards Swan Dive”

Once More Unto The Breach

Three years after his near-death experience at Cortes Bank, Greg Long is back to pushing the boundaries of big-wave surfing

On a sunny afternoon this February, I stepped into a sleepy café in Half Moon Bay, California, to meet Greg Long. The San Clemente native had surfed his way into the finals of the Titans of Mavericks event the day before, and a few minutes after I arrived, he walked through the door with a
