It wasn't so much his considerable talent as a surfer, in waves large and small, that made Jay Moriarty one of the world's most popular wave-riders. It was his talent as a human being. That has been known for years by his many friends, by his wife and family, and even by casual acquaintances. Moriarty wore a smile wherever he went; he finished his sentences with a laugh and generally put those around him in a better mood.

It was as ominous as it was impressive, a towering wall of water so thick and powerful it had the world's most experienced surfers paddling in circles, wondering what they were getting themselves into. "You could have fit four buses inside that barrel, it was that big," said Peter Mel, one of a dozen or so big-wave riders paddling out at Mavericks early Tuesday morning, on perhaps the biggest day of the biggest swell anywhere this winter. "That wave was 30 feet, easily, from the back.
More than anyone else, Jeff Clark knows the surf spot called Maverick's, where winter waves can be as exhilarating--and treacherous--as any in the far reaches of the Pacific. He has surfed those 40- to 60-foot wave faces for two decades in frigid temperatures, carried toward foreboding rocks along the shore. "You're tapping into so much power and you're riding this explosion of water," Clark said recently, sitting outside a seaside cafe while the waves were mild.

We are finally digging ourselves out and the skiing is amazing. People came out of the woodwork this morning and everyone has been grinning from ear to ear. It is always great when we get storms that are measured in feet rather than inches. Katja Dahl, Squaw Valley USA * That sentiment is being echoed by resort representatives across the Sierra Nevada and throughout the West.

A sports drama, a teen comedy, a horror flick and a multi-century epic are all hitting theaters this weekend, but none look like they will be a major draw for moviegoers. Of the four films debuting, "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" seems to have the best shot at No. 1. The sequel to a 2006 movie based on a popular video game is expected to start off with a decent $15 million, according to those who have seen pre-release audience surveys. The big-budget "Cloud Atlas," based on the critically acclaimed 2004 novel by British author David Mitchell, will likely open with a disappointing $13 million.
