    Children and teenagers from the Junior Lifeguard Program jumped off the Ocean Beach Pier on Monday, Aug. 21 as the culmination of their month-long session. They jumped together with friends and family to conquer their fear and to raise money for the Drowning Prevention Foundation of San Diego (formerly the San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation), which helps fund the Junior Lifeguard Program and promotes drowning prevention and aquatic safety education. “It is a big, fun event where the kids can come out and conquer their fear of jumping off the pier,” said lifeguard Dana Nielsen. The pier jump is one of the major goals for the Junior Lifeguards’ participants, and the two pier jump days (the first session takes place in mid-July) are the only days where it is legal for people to leap off the pier. “It is a family and community event,” said Nielsen. San Diego Junior Lifeguard Program offers two four-week sessions every summer for 7 to 17 year olds. The Junior Lifeguards are taught first aid, CPR, ocean and wave education, beach safety and water rescue techniques. In addition, they learn swimming skills, body surfing, body boarding, surfing, snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking. Before the kids and teens participate in the program they have to pass a swimming test. “The goal is to water proof San Diego. We want to make sure that every kid gets the opportunity to learn how to swim since we are an ocean and beach community,” said Nielsen. Besides helping to fund the Junior Lifeguard Program, the Drowning Prevention Foundation of San Diego helps funding swim lessons for intercity schools and intercity groups.

    OB Historical Society presentation on activism Ocean Beach Historical Society will present “OB Activism in My Activist Youth” by Robert Burns at Point Loma United Methodist Church, 1984 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 17. “This presentation will address OB activism of which I was aware or in which I was involved in the 1970s and 1980s,” Burns said. “The focus is not on me but, rather, on that of which I was aware of sometimes with my involvement and sometimes only with my observation.” Organizations and phenomena to be discussed encompass: Ocean Beach Planning Board, OB Free School, OB collectivism, OB rock ‘n’ roll bands, OB Tenants Union, Winchell’s opposition, Committee to Save Black’s Beach, CEAN, OB CRAB, OB People’s Food Store, Committee to Save Red House, Committee to Save Sunset Cliffs, and Friends of Famosa Slough. Burns grew up in Ohio where Lake Erie died, the Cuyahoga River caught fire, forests were clear-cut, farms were strip-mined, and students were murdered at Kent State by the Ohio National Guard. After five months of ill living within the Big Ag plume in Imperial Valley, he moved to OB to go to law school, with a passion for organic produce. Burns was involved in quite a few grassroots movements and causes, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s. He became a lawyer in 1980 and for a while used the legal system as a vehicle for grassroots activism and change. Over time, marriage, children, music, and spiritualism competed for his time.  Bay City Brewing to hold comedy show Craft beer enthusiasts should prepare to laugh the night away on Aug. 11 as Bay City Brewing Co. hosts “40 oz. to Funny” – a comedy night featuring an array of hilarious acts.

    New mural in Ocean Beach is the bee’s knees

    Earlier this year, Celeste Byers received a message from local beekeeper Shauna Aiken. She wanted to commission Byers to create a mural to honor the memory of her late Grandma Willie, while calling attention to the importance of bees, as well as the history of Ocean Beach. Maybe those three things don’t seem like they would work together in a painting, but Byers has a little different perspective of things. The Ocean Beach native describes her work as conveying the “mystical in the everyday and magic beyond what we can perceive.” Byers is an internationally-renowned muralist, who has painted more than 45 murals in the United States, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Mexico, New Zealand, and Australia. This mural will be her fourth in her hometown. Obecians are familiar with her work on the side of Teeter, at 5032 Niagara Ave., the store front of Often Wander Noon, at 4993 Niagara Ave., and on the alley side of Chris' Liquor and Deli, at 2275 Sunset Cliffs Blvd. The 28-year-old artist has a BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and makes her living creating freelance illustration and murals. You can check out (and buy) more of her artwork at her new art show at Culture Brewing Co., at 4845 Newport Ave., from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 4. This latest mural, in the alley between Newport and Niagara avenues (near Kilowatt Brewing), is on the side of an apartment building owned by the Aiken family, who bought property in Ocean Beach in 1887 when lots were only $50. The woman portrayed in the mural, Grandma Willie, was a colorful character who lived in Ocean Beach in the ’60s. She wore different colored nail polish on every nail and her husband built UFOs in the front yard and sold tickets for people to view them, according to Aiken. Byers used a black-and-white photo of Grandma Willie – wearing the hat and glasses – added color and included bees and honeycomb on a blue background. “I like bright, bold colors,” she said. “I want it to stand out.” Byers stood out in her early 20s when she stood up and painted the side of her father’s airplane hanger with humpback whales in kelp beds. That painting got her noticed and led to more mural requests and eventually a paying gig, which led to another, and another, and now 46 and counting. She has worked for such diverse companies as New York Times, American Express, Medium.com, and Lucky Peach Magazine. Last year, Warner Bros. asked Byers to design a Wonder Woman mural to paint at Comic Con for the superhero's 75th anniversary. Also in 2016, she created a mural titled “Freedom / Captivity” on the side of La Bodega Gallery, at 2196 Logan Ave., for PangeaSeed Foundation’s Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans project. “It’s great to be able to paint at home in Ocean Beach and around San Diego, but I love being able to travel,” Byers said. “When I’m in another country, I like to immerse myself in a community and let it inspire me for my next mural. That makes me happy, and hopefully other people are happy with the results.” ART SHOW What: Ocean Beach artist Celeste Byers, will exhibit her paintings, and drawings. Where: Culture Brewing Co., at 4845 Newport Ave. When: 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 4. Info: celestebyers.com.

    The Paul Mitchell Neon Supergirl Pro QS6,000 caped Courtney Conlogue (Santa Ana) its winner after a marathon finals day at the Oceanside Pier. This marks Conlogue’s second Supergirl Pro victory, her first since 2009, after a hard-fought battle with fellow Championship Tour (CT) and Californian Sage Erickson (Ojai). The final was an absolute battle as Erickson came out firing on her backhand with a 7.83 (out of a possible 10) and quickly backed it up on her forehand — earning a 4.66. But, Conlogue responded with a 6.83 of her own before pulling the event’s highest single-scoring wave on an incredible, single-maneuver and earning a near-perfect 9.77. The current CT No. 5 showcased her innovative and progressive skill with the massive air-reverse she spun out of in the whitewater. Conlogue and Erickson have been hoping to face each other in a final this year, each saying the other inspires them to perform at their best. Erickson took her support of her final opponent literally, as she helped carry Conlogue in her victory “chair up” from the surf. “After being the runner-up a few times, I’m definitely stoked to get the cape back,” Conlogue said following her win. “The opportunity to surf against Sage in the final was a big highlight of this event. I haven’t been able to compete against her in a final in a long time and every time we surf against each other, she brings out the best of me. I just know it’s always going to be a fun heat and she always lays it down, so when she opened with that seven, I just knew it was going to be one of those heats. It was a great way to end this event.” “I hold this contest high up on my priority list to do well, I feel a sense of comfort here and responsibility to perform well for all my friends and family,” Erickson said. “It was a dream to be in a final with Courtney again, especially here in California. We have so many memories together and we’re at a point where we love and encourage each other, but I still wanted to beat her.” Erickson went on a tear through finals day taking down Australian Holly Wawn (AUS) in Round Six before eliminating defending Supergirl Pro winner Coco Ho (HAW) in the quarters and 15-year-old phenom Caroline Marks (USA) in the semifinals. Her dominating backhand attack was on display throughout the day that helped propel her to a finals appearance. Falling shy of her third Supergirl Pro title didn’t hinder the Ventura, California surfer’s spirits as she now sits at No. 1 on the QS rankings. Marks’ Supergirl Pro dream run was ended by Erickson in the semi-finals, but she walked away with vital experience and 3,550 points. 2015 Supergirl Pro winner Tatiana Weston-Webb (HAW) unleashed her backhand once more en route to a semifinal finish — falling to eventual winner Conlogue. But, a huge bonus for Weston-Webb and Erickson was walking away with a brand new Nissan Rogue Sport and a $5,000 donation to charity for standing out as Supergirls — based on a combination of competition results and social media outreach.  The program results came down to a tie between the two surfers, which was decided by a coin-flip that Weston-Webb won.  To show their support for the surfers and the event, Nissan doubled down and presented Erickson with a car of her own. “Nissan is excited to be the official automotive sponsor of the Neon Supergirl Pro, as well as presenter of the ‘Super Sport Award,’” said Jason Stoicevich, Nissan regional vice president, who announced the winners on stage during the awards ceremony. “It was inspiring to see so many female athletes come together and support one another throughout the competition. Nissan is looking forward to building upon these key relationships in the lifestyle sports community.” “It’s such an amazing thing for Nissan to do for women’s surfing, showing that they really believe in us,” Weston-Webb added. “It’s really awesome to be a part of this inspirational event with such an incredible prize.” “This weekend is all about female empowerment,” said Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment, the event’s producer. “The Supergirl Pro was created with the mission of providing opportunities for young women in areas where they are traditionally under-represented. It’s incredibly heartening to see all the young women that come out to watch these phenomenal athletes compete and find inspiration for their own dreams.” Beyond the surf competition, the free event also featured live concerts on the Supergirl Pro Entertainment Stage by Bea Miller, Drake Bell, Skylar Stecker, Aaron Carter, Spencer Sutherland and 15 more artists; the inaugural Supergirl Gamer Pro – the only female-driven multi-title esports tournament in the U.S.; meet-and-greets with top pros; a Celebrity Surf Invitational; and so much more.
