Good day, Laguna. It’s good to be back after I missed writing my column for the first time in a decade or more. Although it was said that I was “under the weather,” I appreciate all of your e-mails asking me where I was and not how I was. The truth is I was injured surfing Dec. 14. My karma, I think. Normally for the last few years I have really tried my best to not surf after rain. It’s been my one-person protest of how polluted the oceans are after rain.

"Surfing is not a crime. " That's what 11-time Assn. of Surfing Professionals champ Kelly Slater tweeted when he found out last month that 40-year-old Rex Flodstrom was arrested for … wait for it … surfing Lake Michigan in Chicago. Flodstrom was charged with disorderly conduct, two counts of violating a Chicago Park District ordinance and one count of being in the park after park hours. He was handcuffed and taken to jail in his wetsuit. When the news got out, Slater was outspoken and expressed he might go to Chicago and attend Flodstrom's court appearance, which took place last week, in a show of support.

But why is surfing so great, you ask? Well, for starters you can do it on the cheap. With a good used board and wetsuit you’ve got a ticket to ride. Makes me think of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” when Charlie found the golden ticket! (He bought that Wonka bar with a quarter!) The only bail-out needed is when you go over the falls of a closeout. The health benefits are amazing. There’s cardio involved, upper body, lower body and core training too. Talk about longevity, there’s some legendary folks out there still shredding it up!
