I was in the Mentawaiis the day the quake hit. I was traveling throughout Indonesia surfing and doing humanitarian work. As with so many surfers who volunteer every year, the first part of my trip was to consist of a standard boat charter trip with friends through the Mentawaii Islands. After that I was scheduled to fly over to Bali and work, with Skills For Humanity ( www.skillsforhumanity.org ), on a humanitarian project for my new foundation — Waves For Water ( www.wavesforwater.

Surfers gathered at Rockpile on Tuesday for a paddle-out to remember “Jungle” Jack Denny, a legendary Laguna Beach surfer and clothing designer who died of cancer Sept. 9, 1998, at the age of 33. Denny founded World Jungle clothing, an early and ground-breaking surfwear company, which started out in 1990 with a $9,000 investment and grew to a $1 million enterprise in two years. Denny spent six years designing for Gotcha, and also worked for MCD and Bash clothing, before launching his own business.

School district refinances bond debt The Laguna Beach School District is looking to refinance the bond debt of the Community Facilities District, which will save homeowners in the district 9.3%. Dean West, director of fiscal services, said the school district saw that interest rates went down and found it in its best interest to refinance. There are 567 homes in the Community Facilities District, which works much like a developer fee but rather than paid up front, homeowners pay it month to month, similar to mello roos type of tax, West said.

Does anyone know where the sun has gone? After a blistering June it seems that July this year has become more like the June of past years. Clouds and drizzle. Perhaps August might once again bring us sunshine. On Wednesday the swell was increasing, as another “southern hemi” (southern hemishere) swell is forecasted with expected overhead surf on its way. I would like to think the swell might be big enough and last through the weekend so we can once again run the Brooks Street surfing classic.

The Soul Surfing van was stuffed to capacity Friday evening as we bolted down the coast for a weekend surf competition. Inside were some of Laguna’s finest young surfers and among the dozen or so “groms” was 17-year-old Porter Hogan. Porter is one of those young guys that gives me hope that the future of surfing is in good hands. He’s humble, helps out with younger groms, is an honors student and captain of the Laguna Beach High School surf team. Talk about a well-rounded guy. I can remember watching Porter years ago down at Thalia Street working hard on his surfing skills.

Tom Titus Lagunans -- most of them anyway -- have a pretty well developed sense of humor, as well as a thick skin, the result of enduring endless jibes about the Art Colony on subjects ranging from traffic to lifestyle. Some of them even enjoy poking fun at themselves, as writers Bree Burgess Rosen and Tim Dey began doing 10 years ago. They created an evening of skits called "Lagunatics" as a fund-raiser for Laguna Shanti. The event was a howling success, and it's gotten bigger every year.

The dream deferred can nag at you. Maybe you said you'd go to Bali and didn't. Maybe you always intended to jump out of a plane someday and here you still are, waiting till it lands. The task begun and left unfinished is worse. You were going to lose 10 pounds, but you lost four and then lost interest. You started to clean out the garage, but something came up and now every time you look in there you feel like a slacker. When you do manage to complete one of these endeavors, the boost in self-esteem is disproportionate --- you feel better than the achievement calls for, because it took so long.
