The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.


6-9 p.m. Join the Surfing Heritage & Culture Center as it celebrates the life and times of its co-founder, Dick Metz. From his days with Hobie Alter to tipping off Bruce Brown about Cape Saint Francis, the hand Metz has played in the surf world cannot be understated. This year, Metz will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at SIMA’s annual Waterman’s Ball, which takes place on Aug. 14 in Laguna Beach. But SHACC thought it’d get the party started a little early and invite everyone for some of Metz’s classic stories, music by the Swingin’ Tikis and a lot more. SHACC, 110 Calle Iglesia, San Clemente. 949.388.0313.
