    I n Ocean Beach, skateboards are more than just a piece of maplewood with wheels. Skateboards are a method of transportation, a statement of identity, and are deeply ingrained in the vibrant beach culture. As the international “Go Skateboarding Day” approaches in San Diego (on June 21), area skate shops are organizing skate sessions, barbecues, and competitions that will gather the skating community together for fellowship, to raise awareness of the cause, and, of course, to have fun. So how did skateboarding become the wheels of a generation in SoCal? The Peninsula Beacon asked several local skate shop owners about skateboarding’s appeal. “Skateboarding became popular because of the strong surf culture, which ultimately led to skate culture because there is a lot of overlap between the two,” said Pablo Lanatta, owner of Adrenalina Skate in La Jolla. Paul (Pablo) Smith, owner of Soul Grind Skate Shop in Pacific Beach, spoke about his experience in the skating community, saying that the connection is strong because it is created through a passion for a thrill-seeking sport. He also brought up the originality factor within the community of skating. “There is a strong community of skaters,” he said, “but each person has a different style, does unique tricks, and follows a certain brand to express themselves.” According to reports, the skateboarding market is worth an estimated $4.8 billion in annual revenue with 11.08 million active skateboarders in the world. A common way to celebrate Go Skateboarding Day is to purchase new equipment, and locally-owned shops are a great place to start. Tyler Ashton, general manager at Sun Diego Boardshop in Mission Beach, says that most shops that sell skating equipment actually stock the same products, only the brands are different. He mentioned that it is important to know that some brands are owned by big corporations and don’t actually benefit the skating community. “Brands owned by skaters are a better option to buy from because you know that the owner of the company is in it for the passion of skating,” Tyler said. Some skater-owned companies that Tyler mentioned are Sk8mafia, Creature, and Santa Cruz. If you are looking to be active on June 21, Lanatta says that Adrenalina Skate is holding its annual skate event. Every year, the skate shop typically meets at a secret location that is announced shortly before the day, and skates in a group around the beach area. Lanatta also expressed his love for skating and how it benefits the environment by reducing the amount of motorized vehicles on the streets. He wants to share that message with the people outside of the skate community. “Not only is skating a good alternative mode of transportation to keep you fit, but it also gets people out of their cars, which keeps the air clean,” he said. Another event will take place at Robb Field Skate Park in Ocean Beach, City of San Diego’s first skatepark. Ocean Beach Surf and Skate organizes a ride every year from the store to the skate park, where they have a cookout to unite the community. Andrew Stoner, general manager of Ocean Beach Surf and Skate, explained that OB has a large number of skaters mainly because of the culture that the community emits. He described this culture as “a Bohemian vibe,” further clarifying that “Ocean Beach is a perfect beach area for people that enjoy the freedom of just riding around in the streets.” Ocean Beach Surf and Skate is known for being a family friendly skate shop that promotes and supports local skate companies. Revoked, a company that keeps its focus on the “lighter side of skating” while ensuring they give back to the community, sells their boards in OB Surf and Skate. Josh Utley, owner of Revoked, is a long time skateboarder who actually attended the opening of the Robb Field Skate Park when he was a freshman in high school. Revoked is currently doing a promotion with the San Diego native, ska/punk band, Buck-O-Nine. The company is selling 50 of each of the four unique deck designs that incorporate the band’s logo. For every Buck-O-Nine deck purchase, a deck will be given to a young skater in need at a local San Diego skatepark. “I lead the San Diego chapter of Skate For Change,” Utley said, “I give either homeless kids, or kids that come from low income families skateboards products. We have already given out a board at Washington Street.” Purchasing one of these skateboards will not only treat you to a brand new deck, but also give back to the community. For more information, or to purchase a board, go to revokedmob.com. Skateboarding is a fantastic way to stay fit, travel somewhere not too far, learn more about yourself, and be apart of a unique and supportive community. It’s even going to be an Olympic sport. In 2016, it was announced that skateboarding will be represented at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. So get outside and enjoy Go Skateboarding Day on June 21.

Skateboarding timeline 1958 — The skateboard is made from roller skates attached to a board in Southern California. As surfing becomes popular, "sidewalk surfing" becomes a way to surf when there are no waves. 1963 — Surfboard companies start making better-quality skateboards with clay wheels. The first skate contest is in Hermosa Beach. In 1964, Jan and Dean sing "Sidewalk Surfing" on “Dick Clark's American Bandstand.” Skateboarder magazine debuts. 1973 — With the invention of urethane wheels and fiberglass boards, new possibilities emerge as banks and curves become skateable, and skating is never the same. 1977 — The California drought forces homeowners to drain their pools, and skateboarders use the new spaces. New tricks are invented daily – aerials, inverts, and the ollie. 1982 — The Bones Brigade Video Show, which includes Stacey Peralta, Steve Caballero, and Tony Hawk, starts producing skateboarding videos that will reach kids all over the world. 1995 — Skateboarding takes a giant step into the mainstream with ESPN's Extreme Games, becoming more of a spectator sport. By the late ’90s, skating appears in mainstream commercials. 2000 — Robb Field Skatepark in Ocean Beach, constructed by the City of San Diego, opens February 2000. In 2004, International Association of Skateboard Cos. conceives Go Skateboarding Day. SOURCE: TEACHER.SCHOLASTIC.COM

    A recurring theme of Point Loma High School's 93rd commencement ceremony last Wednesday was "Voices." In congratulating the approximately 415 members of the Class of 2018, principal Hans Becker noted that one characteristic of the group was its voice, citing the students' rallies and outcry in support of gun control after recent school shootings. Earlier in his speech, co-valedictorian Jonathan Omens spoke of a poster he saw in the classroom of popular history teacher Glenn Richard. It featured a photo of author Kurt Vonnegut and a quote: "True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country." Omens admitted he was scared at this thought when he first saw the poster as an underclassman but now, in retrospect, he realized every high school class in history has made mistakes. "We're all going to make mistakes but we can't let that be what defines our class," Omens said. "If we own our mistakes and come back from them even stronger then we have what it takes (voices) to be defined by our successes and not our failures." Omens said he now feels confident in his classmates' ability to someday run the country. For co-valedictorian Kyle Grady, it was a recent trip to India followed by traveling alone through 11 European countries that taught him the value of non-verbal communication. He often found himself in situations where he was unable to communicate (voices) with local people when, for instance, he was trying to locate a hostel for the night. Grady said he learned the value of a smile in communicating with those he sought help from on the streets and in stores, a universal recipe for interacting with others. The Class of 2018 is headed to universities from Hawaii to New Hampshire and has been awarded over $2 million in scholarships. Sixteen are attending SDSU, nine will go to UC San Diego, five will be at PLNU, six at CSU San Marcos. Six are entering local junior colleges and several are joining the armed services. About 210 of the graduates were honor roll members, earning grade point averages of 3.3 or higher. And yes, Jonathan, maybe you will wake up some morning and find members of this class are running the country.

    Thank you for the comment Eric. As a member of your class, we had over 700 students! I don't know how the stands held all those who came to celebrate with us. Maybe back in the day it was only mom, dad and maybe grandparents? Now it's aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. The crowd overflowed onto the field and there were hundreds of others behind the stands where refreshments were sold. But it never ceases to be a special and memorable day! "Once a Pointer, Always a Pointer!"
    Magical mermaid vanishes from Sunset Cliffs

    As mysteriously as she arrived, the nautical nymph perched on top of Ross Rock vanished during the night of June 13. Although high tides have been pounding the cliffs the past week, it seems her departure was not from natural causes. According to 10News.com, the “Cliffs Crew” is claiming they removed the mermaid. Members of this group told 10News that they witnessed people trying to climb 50-foot-high Ross Rock to take selfies with the blue-haired goddess. The crew didn’t want anyone to be harmed attempting to scale the rock. An Arizona man, who admitted to being part of the group who placed the mermaid on the rock, told KUSI News they want it back. The man, who remained anonymous, said it took a year of planning and that they’re disappointed she’s missing. He added it would be great if there was a local business or restaurant that would want to put her up. Point Loma resident Lucie Leonard took photos on May 31 that showed a rope ladder and two men on the rock installing the Marina the mermaid. “I wouldn’t call it art. I wouldn’t call it vandalism. I think that someone was just trying to bring some joy to the world,” Leonard said. She said one of the men must have free-climbed the side and dropped a rope ladder for the mermaid to reach her seat. The mermaid isn’t the first to perch aloft the notorious rock. In 2010, the numbers “2010” stood proud. Before that, in 2006, a peace sign was put up, only to be stolen and returned to the roof of the OB Hostel on Newport Avenue. Other royalty to grace the top of the formation includes a pterodactyl, an Easter Island head replica, a Christmas tree, and a toilet with a Raiders fan wedged inside.

Entries may be dropped off at 1621 Grand Ave. on the second floor, or mailed to: Peninsula Beacon, Attn: Photo Contest, 1621 Grand Ave., Suite C, San Diego, CA, 92109.

We usually get more than 400 ballots.” Benefit concert for Music At Dusk series The San Diego Tremble Clefs will play a benefit concert for the Music At Dusk series at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 24 at Sanctuary of Westminster Presbyterian Church, 3598 Talbot St. Tremble Clefs is a San Diego county chorus and a nationwide program for people with Parkinson’s. This group focuses on the therapeutic results of focal exercise, the joy of singing and community performances.

Religious opera at Point Loma church “Noye’s Fludde’’ (‘‘Noah’s Flood’’), an opera about Noah’s Ark and the world-engulfing deluge it weathered, will be performed Friday and Saturday, June 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Point Loma’s All Souls’ Episcopal Church, 1475 Catalina Blvd. British composer Benjamin Britten’s opera centers on the 40-day Genesis Flood and God’s rescue of Noah, his family and the world’s animals. Britten wrote it in 1957 in an effort to bring together youth and adults for community music-making. Several Point Loma schoolchildren will participate.  This opera is considered a masterpiece of its time and is rarely performed due to its large scope – the upcoming production will feature more than 70 musicians, including a full orchestra. Major portions of ‘‘Noye’s Fludde’’ were featured in the 2012 movie ‘‘Moonrise Kingdom.’’ This production is a collaboration between All Souls’ Episcopal Church, St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church of Poway and St. Matthew’s Anglican Church in Newport Beach.

Dubbed the “Abbot of Absurdity” by the Boston Globe, “America’s Wittiest Verbalist” by the Book of the Month Club, and “the first name in popular linguistics” by the Denver Post, Lederer has been entertaining and educating audiences for almost three decades on the joys and weirdness of the English language. “The money we raise through this event will support out current capital campaign to upgrade and modernize our campus, making it more welcoming to the community and discovering more ways to be in mission and ministry with our neighbors in Point Loma and Ocean Beach,” said The Rev. Joseph Dirbas, rector of All Souls. Donate blood in OB San Diego Blood Bank will be at the Rite Aid parking lot, 4840 Niagara St., 1:30 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13.
