Jake Grubb, the new executive director of the Surfrider Foundation, speaks warmly, proudly, intensely about his teen-age son, Graham. "For reasons I never understood, Graham grew up loving the outdoors," the father said. "He was compelled to know about and be in the outdoors. And that was his interest, 110%, at all times, from since he was old enough to speak." The father spoke about his son in the past tense, for Graham Grubb died a year ago this month at the age of 18 in a senseless accident.

The joint agreement between Chevron, the Surfrider Foundation and the California Coastal Commission is the first time a major corporation, public agency and citizens group have joined forces to re-create surfing spots, said Surfrider Foundation Executive Director Jake Grubb.

Chevron Oil Co. has agreed to pay up to $300,000 to improve surfing conditions along a stretch of beach near El Segundo that surfers say was damaged by the construction of a rock jetty in 1983. The agreement ends 10 years of negotiations among Chevron, the California Coastal Commission and the Surfrider Foundation, a decade-old surfers' environmental group, over how to improve the lost surf.

"We're absolutely stoked," said Teri Schulz, 27, speaking of her foundation's legal victory on Monday. "We went for clean water, and that's what we're going to get." Schulz is a surfer. She also is administrative director of the Surfrider Foundation, a 7-year-old environmental organization dedicated to protecting surf and shorelines. On Monday, the foundation announced legal concessions that it had won from two pulp mills which had been polluting waters in Northern California's Humboldt County.

On a cool September morning last year, the Grubb and Ciskowski families received telephone calls that would shatter their lives. Jake Grubb was watching TV at home in Laguna Niguel when the San Diego coroner's office called. A hundred miles away, John and Connie Ciskowski were vacationing in Borrego Springs when John's father notified them. The parents' children, Graham J. Grubb and Amanda J. Ciskowski, had been run over and killed as they camped out at San Onofre State Park. Both were 18.

Two teen-agers camping overnight at San Onofre State Park were killed instantly early Sunday when a car veered off a narrow access road and slammed into their tent, crushing them as they slept, officials said. The car, a Ford Mustang, apparently traveled down the wrong side of the winding road before jumping from the pavement and plowing into the teen-agers' nearby car, hurling it 180 feet, investigators said. The Mustang careened off the car and ended up on top of the bodies.

You've been together for a while now, and being with this person is like poetry. Except for one fault that's about the size of the San Andreas: You haven't gotten a decent gift yet. Are you being too critical? Shouldn't one measure of a good relationship be its ability to overcome lousy gifts? Will the current round of holidays exacerbate the problem, or will this be a turning point?

It was a historic meeting. Amid plates of tacos, enchiladas and rounds of Mexican beer, the roll was called. Among the assembled: a United Parcel Service truck driver who can hang 10, a T-shirt designer from Malibu who is great with "smackin' the wave lips," and Hawk, a self-described troublemaker from Ventura. Hardly your run-of-the-mill environmentalists.
