Despite mostly gloomy skies, about 25,000 people flocked to Huntington Beach on the first weekend day of the 13th annual Ocean Pacific Pro Surfing Championship, but the event that once earned distinction as the city's biggest beach party this year lured a more sedate crowd.

This laid-back surfers' town is wearing a decidedly anxious look this weekend as it girds to prevent the kind of street mayhem that has erupted on the past two Fourth of July holidays. Along with barbecues and the city's annual parade, Independence Day in Huntington Beach has come to mean police in riot gear, crowd-clearing water cannons in the shiny, newly renovated downtown, and throngs of bottle-throwing rowdies.
