  • City Lights: Slater handles himself like a pro

    I got to be a celebrity once, kind of. It wasn't at Barnes & Noble or the Academy Awards or anything like that, but at Girls Inc. of Orange County. I had covered a few stories there as the Daily Pilot's education reporter, and when I arrived to write...
  • City Lights: Al, like other celebrities, isn't that weird

    City Lights: Al, like other celebrities, isn't that weird
    As I've noted before, I don't get awed by meeting celebrities. Over the years, I've encountered Rainn Wilson, Giada de Laurentiis, Gillian Welch, Kelly Slater and a slew of others, and the feeling is always the same: a second or two of giddiness, followed...
  • Joe Surf: Now that Slater's got the city key, come on back to compete

    So last week, Huntington Beach gave Kelly Slater a key to the city. Well deserved. Didn't they name a street after him, too? You know, Slater Avenue, between Talbert and Warner avenues? Anyway, he deserves it. Some call him the best surfer ever, and...

    Joe Surf: H.B. local is underdog at U.S. Open of Surfing
    Kelly Slater hasn't done it. Neither has Rob Machado, Sunny Garcia nor Tom Curren. Not when it was called the OP Pro, or more recently, the U.S. Open of Surfing. In fact, nobody on the men's side has ever won the U.S. Open of Surfing three...

  • In The Pipeline: Paddling 26 miles for one little girl's sight

    About 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Drew Kenny arrived at the Huntington Beach Pier. How did he get there? On a stand-up paddleboard. Where did he leave from? Catalina Island. Just what would inspire the 42-year-old Huntington Beach consultant to paddle 26 miles?...
  • Slater slays competition at U.S. Open of Surfing

    There was talk before the start of the U.S. Open of Surfing that 2011 could be the year of the Young Guns. Just days before Sunday's Men's final, former World Tour veteran and first-year contest director Pat O'Connell, felt the same way. But O'Connell...
  • Joe Surf: Jordy Smith shows potential to be the 'next Kelly Slater'

    There's a sports blog with a video clip on Yahoo! Sports titled "Jordy Smith pulls arguably the best surfing move ever." The move is called a "rodeo flip," and it's kind of a combination of a flip and a reverse 360. I know it's a sick move because...
  • Joe Surf: Old school surfing contest
