I got the chance to see a different side of Laguna Beach two weeks ago. I went snorkeling in South Laguna. My guide, Carey Conklin, was so persuasive that this was the absolute best day of the year to bob around a reef that I changed my long-overdue hair appointment. He wasn’t wrong. Water temperature: 74 degrees. Surf: gentle. Breeze: non-existent. “You have to come out here,” he said. “This is a once-in-a-year thing.” But snorkeling?

Andrew Edwards Thousands of gallons of raw sewage prompted health authorities to close Aliso Beach on Friday, but it was not enough to deter a handful of beachgoers from playing in the polluted surf. The beach was open again Sunday. "No extra toes," joked Jon Collyer, a skimboarder from Dana Point who was not worried by the possibility of sharing the water with bacteria. The Orange County Health Care Agency closed a 1-mile stretch of beach after 10,500 gallons of sewage seeped out of a manhole cover and flowed into the ocean Thursday evening, healthcare agency spokesman Larry Honeybourne said.

Soul Surf owners Chris and Karen Williams have taken the plunge by opening their first shop at 763 S. Coast Hwy. last month. "It's important to have a location doing what we do," he said. The company runs surf lessons, surf programs, corporate parties and an after-school surf team, Chris Williams said. It had a grand opening for its new location in early March. The Soul Surf surfing team, a big part of the company, counts about 25 local children. Williams said he is taking a "club soccer team" approach to the surfing team, tapping a USA Surf Team medical director and using a strength/flexibility program to create top-notch surfers.

The faltering local economy is one good reason for the city to allow a kayaking concession at Treasure Island Beach, although it?s not the only one. Opening up another avenue of interest, another drawing card, for Laguna Beach this summer will serve not only the concessionaire but other local merchants struggling to keep their businesses going. And that is all to the good. Of course, establishing a business close to the surf line will require some finesse, and the operator knows there are watchdogs ready to pounce on anything that might be detrimental to the beach environment.

There is no better theme song for the rich tradition of summertime surfing here in Laguna than Laguna’s musical band of hipness, “Honk.” Listening to Brad and David’s theme song just makes you want to go outside and embrace summer. Being back from Chicago last week, and surfing in front of my parents’ home, was like an old school reunion. Warm water. Sunny skies. Fun waves. Good friends. Simply put, I love it. I have so many good memories of that beach it’s unbelievable.
