    In the beach communities of San Diego, 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 (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? San Diego Community Newspaper Group 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, support a local skate company, and get you in touch with your ska/punk roots. 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

    There will be an abundance of “local color” on display in this summer’s Under the Sun, the highly-anticipated 2018 Pageant of the Masters. This world-famous theatrical celebration of great art recreated in tableaux vivants will be celebrating the 85th anniversary of “living pictures” presented as part of Laguna Beach’s Festival of Arts. The production that began as a publicity gimmick for the second Festival of Arts in 1933 quickly grew into a summer tradition that now attracts more than 140,000 patrons every summer. At its helm is pageant producer-director Diane Challis Davy, once again summoning her creative energies and inspiring her talented team of theatrical artists as they breathe life into this one-of-a-kind entertainment that presents spectacular stage illusions with original, live music by the pageant orchestra and informative and engaging narration also performed live each night under the stars. Under the Sun will be Challis Davy’s 23rd pageant as director. During her tenure, Challis Davy’s audiences have been reassured each summer’s show will be dramatically different than the previous year’s. Asked about her inspiration for choosing the theme more than a year ago, Challis Davy, said: “I was driving east on Crown Valley one spring evening last year, watching the changing light on the foothills of Saddleback mountain, when I thought, Ah-ha! ‘Under the Sun!’ The phrase is from Ecclesiastes, and I think it serves us very well. I wanted the theme to express an awareness and appreciation of the beauty of nature, to focus on artists who choose to paint in the ‘open air’ and to acknowledge how French impressionism influenced artists around the world to record their own personal reflections.” Pageant scriptwriter Dan Duling, who works closely with Challis Davy as he researches and writes the narration (performed live each night by Richard Doyle), noted another consideration. “We’re taking a cue from two anniversaries this summer: the centennial celebration for the Laguna Art Museum, and the 85th anniversary of ‘living pictures’ here at the Festival of Arts. So, the history of Laguna’s art colony, first gallery, and pageant traditions will get special attention.” Challis Davy added: “When I received an invitation from the museum’s director Malcolm Warner to acknowledge the museum’s anniversary this summer, I had no hesitation in saying ‘Of Course!’ And I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to share a selection of masterworks by artists associated with lovely Laguna Beach” In the early years of the 20th century, the great variety of natural landscapes attracted artists to Southern California: the Pacific Ocean, mountains, deserts. But more than anything, it was “the light.” A new generation of impressionists and plein air painters set up their easels outdoors and reveled in the natural beauty to be found as far as the eye could see, especially here in the tiny artists’ colony of Laguna Beach. Under the Sun will include works by many of Laguna’s early masters: Anna Hills, William Griffith, Rex Brandt, Julia Bracken Wendt, and Joseph Kleitsch, one of Challis Davy’s favorites. “Joseph Kleitsch was an extraordinary artist in Southern California in the early 20th century,” she stated. “And, like many Laguna painters, he also happened to be an immigrant.” Challis Davy also said she’s looking forward to paying tribute to Roger Kuntz, another modern master with strong local connections whose works were featured in a memorable retrospective at the Laguna Art Museum a few years back. Audiences for Under the Sun can look forward to a healthy sense of theatrical fun, including a classic “builder,” those moments when they open up the curtains and show how a living picture is put together. “Builders have been audience favorites since they were first included in the 1966 Pageant.” And an elaborate tribute to art and music associated with the Southland’s surf culture will no doubt be a highlight. As always, Challis Davy and her staff realize the pageant wouldn’t be possible without their volunteers who return year after year to take part. Challis Davy offered a final, thoughtful observation: “I’ll never get tired of working and creating in this beautiful amphitheater, on the edge of the greenbelt of oaks and sycamores with its owls, hawks, jays, hummingbirds and an elusive roadrunner.” The Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters are sponsored in part by Southern California Acura Dealers, Fidelity Investments, KOST Radio 103.5, Pavilions and the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel. ABOUT THE PAGEANT OF THE MASTERS Presented by the Festival of Arts of Laguna Beach The Pageant of the Masters is arguably one of the most unique productions in the entire world. Audiences are amazed and enchanted by ninety minutes of tableaux vivants ("living pictures"), incredibly faithful re-creations of classical and contemporary works of art, with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces. DATES & TIMES July 7 – Sept. 1 Performances nightly at 8:30 p.m. TICKET INFORMATION Advance tickets $15 - $260 SPONSORS The Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters are sponsored in part by Southern California Acura Dealers, Fidelity Investments, KOST Radio 103.5, Pavilions and the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel. LOCATION Irvine Bowl at the Festival of Arts 650 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach FOR INFORMATION & TICKETS (800) 487-3378 www.PageantTickets.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.

    Mission Bay High School’s Class of 2018 paraded into the school’s football stadium on June 13, cheered on by family, and friends on a sunny afternoon outdoors. Students Madeline Lynch, Josie La Valle and Piatt Pund sung the national anthem to kick off the commencement ceremony. Clad in caps and gowns with gold tassels, graduates were handed their diplomas personally by principal Ernest Remillard, who posed for a photograph with each student as their names were called out from the class list. “We are gathered here today to recognize all 214 of these students for managing to survive and overcome the obstacles faced,” said ASB Council president Cecilia Lopez. “We all know how hard it is to balance both our personal and academic struggles, while juggling work and sports with classes, sometimes sleeping only six hours a night – or pulling an all-nighter to study for a final – and waking up at 5 a.m. to catch a bus. But it was all worth it… an unforgettable journey.”  MBHS senior class president Bryanna Pintor said, “This is not an ending – but a new beginning.” She thanked her mom, whom she described as her “best friend” noting, “She never allowed me to believe in obstacles, that I couldn’t do whatever I wanted to do, or be whoever I wanted to be.” Of her friends, Pintor said, “Thank you all for shaping me and being there for me. Getting here was by no means easy. There were many times we thought we would never reach the finish line. “But those struggles have only made this moment sweeter. We have the power to change the world. I am confident our generation will make change, not only in the way we think, but in our actions. It is our turn, and the good news is that all of us are ready,” said Pintor. Pointing out she “never liked being the center of attention,” valedictorian Ciara Gray said she was “wiser today than four years ago.” Pointing to balance as her prevailing theme, Gray thanked her instructors for “teaching me to enjoy the journey,” adding, “I am grateful to all the students, teachers and staff who shaped my high-school experience.” In his speech, salutatorian Luke Loomis thanked his peers, MBHS faculty and student parents.  Of parents, Loomis commented, “You are the bows from which your living arrows are sent forward.” He thanked “all the parents and parental figures here today for their unconditional love, which has helped drive us to this moment.” Remillard congratulated the graduates for “pushing themselves” to meet graduation requirements noting, “Most of you exceeded those requirements. “You have brought so much to this class,” Remillard added. “This will be the first day of your new journey. I am confident Mission Bay High School has prepared you for this next step … to achieve greatness in whatever journey your life takes you on. “Enjoy the journey,” was the principal’s final piece of advice. “Please remember, Always be respectful. Go Bucs!”
