If you don't think beach volleyball is a tough sport, you should see veteran pro Scott Ayakatubby during one of his acupuncture sessions. "I've got needles sticking out of my ears, my hands, my back, my feet, and my butt," Ayakatubby said. "But I'm hooked on it. It helps get the new blood in and the old blood out." For the last couple of years Ayakatubby, 25, of Hermosa Beach, has been using acupuncture as part of his training regimen.

Scott Ayakatubby had driven from Hermosa Beach to El Segundo dozens of times before March 27 but had no idea how he made it those six miles that night without killing himself. Or somebody else. It was a Saturday and Ayakatubby, 39, a premier professional beach volleyball player, had been drinking before he got in his 3-month-old pickup truck -- his prize for topping the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals 2003 season points list -- and started toward home.

After a year off, Scott Ayakatubby has returned to the pro beach volleyball tour bigger and stronger than ever. He left the tour as a 6-foot-4, 187-pounder and is back at a muscular 205 pounds. "He's better than ever," said Ayakatubby's partner, Tim Hovland. "He's been doing weights, and he's cleaning up his act." The fast lane brought Ayakatubby's pro beach volleyball career to a halt last year.

Scott Ayakatubby brought it to the beach as a reminder of his brother, as a push when he needed one, as a final reason to keep moving forward when his 38-year-old body no longer wanted to. Ayakatubby had been carrying the memorial program given out at his older brother's recent funeral and pulled it from his backpack Sunday after winning the Hermosa Beach Open for the first time in his 19-year career.
