MOTOMAT
The other day I had the opportunity to try out the new <b><a href="http://motomat.net">MOTOMAT</a></b> high performance changing mat. As some of you may know, I generally just walk down to the surf, so I don't have to hassle with getting in and out of car before catching some waves, but the other day I went to Topanga and I was forced to do what most of us have to deal with regularly -- wriggle out of a wet, sandy, dirty wetsuit and discreetly change into some dry clothes before figuring out where to stow the dirty mess without ruining my car. The MOTOMAT simplified and streamlined the whole process. It can also be used for skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking and other activities where you need to change outdoors.

THE JETTY AT THE WESTERN BORDER OF THE BEL AIR BAY
The jetty at the western border of the Bel Air Bay club is being extended... numerous boulders have already been added. Gina Ladinsky and Nancy Hastings of Surfrider are working to check to see if permits were pulled, as well as to ascertain the intention. It may cause sand shifts, but it is unclear as to what effect - positive or negative - this will have on the break at Sunset. If anyone has some thoughts on the issue (a geologist or an oceanographer, maybe?) please contact <b><a href="http://surfriderla.typepad.com"> Surfrider West L.A.</a></b> to help clarify the impact this jetty will have on Sunset.

LOVESWELL
I was fortunate enough to attend the premiere of John Fortson's solo-performance play <b><a href="http://www.loveswell.com">Loveswell</a></b> this weekend. It explores a surfer's struggle to balance the demands of his marriage with his love for waves, but what is truly impressive about the play is how honestly and bravely he addresses this material. The typical stereotypes we associate both with surfers and with marriages are thrown out the window. Instead, Fortson insists on 100% authenticity in his approach. The result is an experience that raises all sorts of important questions about love, and even gives us a glimpse of the possibilities mother nature offers us in our search for a meaningful life.
