Oak Street

By Chris Williams | December 25, 2009
The pre-Christmas holiday swells showed up right on time in Laguna last week, complete with brilliant sunsets and memorable surf sessions. Out in the water at Oak Street were many familiar faces from around the Laguna ?hood, and while surfing was the main draw, getting caught up and sharing a laugh was also standard fare. There was Coach Brett with his son Tye effortlessly nabbing several silky peaks at Gene?s Reef. Tye is completing his third year up at college. Brooks Street aficionado Allison left her usual spot and paddled north to grab some rather accommodating corners at Oak Street proper.

JAMES PRIBRAM Moving is brutal. I recently moved from South Laguna to Oak Street and what a difference. I can feel that old Laguna vibe every time I walk into my new place or sit outside in the backyard. To be quite honest I feel like I have time warped back a few generations or moved to Hawaii. The backyard has rose bushes, loquat, fig and artichoke trees. I feel extremely lucky to find such a place. Especially when I was beginning to think that such places no longer exist here in Laguna Beach.

LAGUNA LIFE The early chapters of life hold the most numerous and often most cherished moments to remember. Growing up in Laguna for 40 years has provided a treasure trove of such moments. Every waking and dream-filled state of mind was under the magical spell of the ocean. From skin-diving with my dad for abs and lobster several times a week to "skid-boarding," as we so fondly called it, to mat surfing, there was plenty to keep one fired up for the next day's adventure.

Dining Out When it comes to inspirational success stories, it would be difficult to top the tale of Laguna's Alex Costa. The enterprising restaurateur launched his initial Gina's Pizza and Pastaria in Boat Canyon in partnership with mother Gina circa 1983. The place was doubled when an adjoining dry cleaners folded. Then in 1997, after learning Boat Canyon would be demolished for total reconstruction, he opened a second unit on Oak Street. Ironically, following closure of another cleaning establishment next door, the Oak Street unit was expanded last year.
