It was just one game and yet it summed up an entire tournament. At least for the West. Larry Mouchawar of Mission Hills scored four goals Tuesday night at the Koury Natatorium in Chapel Hill, N.C., but his West team lost to the South, 12-7. It's been the same story all week here in the U.S. Olympic Festival water polo competition. Nobody seems able to stop Mouchawar, yet he and his teammates don't seem to be able to stop anybody.

Keeping the wet out often is of prime concern on outdoor excursions. Whether tackling inclement weather or water sports, travelers will find a multitude of innovations that keep damp situations from putting a damper on a trip. The following items also may be available at local stores. Prices do not include shipping and handling. The sounds of the sea could very well be rock 'n' roll if you take along the Sea Sounds Underwater Cassette Player next time you head for the deep.

Your article on the Aliso Beach sewage spill (April 19), though well reported if Terry Brandt and Michael Dunbar were quoted correctly, is a great illustration of the inequities imparted by the media to the public and private sectors on environmental issues. The corporate world is chastised and condemned as ruthless and uncaring plunderers of the environment while the reoccurring blunders of our civic leaders and municipal governments are buried on the back pages, save for fraud and scandal.

Sun, sand and surf translate into fun water sports, and when the weather heats up, there's no cooler place to be than Southern California. If you already have a fitness regimen, try adding the low-impact activity of swimming to your routine. Your joints and ligaments will thank you for the rest from high-impact exercise like running and aerobics. If you're just starting to work out, consider swimming as a way to increase your strength and aerobic capacity.

For 29-year-old Mike Cunningham and three friends, Sunday morning's race through the ocean currents and across the loose sand at Redondo Beach might have provided lasting glory--the national sports spotlight, thousands of dollars in cash prizes, photographs on Wheaties boxes. If only the race had been held in Australia.

Bill Tai is as competitive as venture capitalists come. But in spring and summer, even as the latest technology wave gusts through Silicon Valley, don't look for him on Sand Hill Road. The Charles River Ventures partner is likely to be enjoying a wild ride on the San Francisco Bay as he pursues his quest for wind over water. Tai launches from a mud flat, known as Third Avenue Beach, that's east of U.S. 101 near the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge. He picks up speed and power as he jumps waves, his colorful canopy pulled by strong winds.
Trying to take a little late summer vacation without squandering the family savings on expensive boating, camping, hiking, canoeing or scuba equipment? You don't have to buy much of what you'll need. You can rent it, and often at the last minute, unless it's a holiday weekend. Westwood stockbroker Fred Stern learned the rental lesson early on. He's been sailing for 30 years and has always rented boats. He rents sailboats for day sails or weekend trips with his family and friends.

As far as high school rivalries go, the one between Corona del Mar and Newport Harbor is as intense as any. When these schools compete, pride is as much a factor as athletic or intellectual ability. But amid this turbulence there is also a peaceful coexistence--a calm, if you will, on the water.
Driven by what he calls a touch of insanity, Mark Zollitch strapped five Olympic-style, flat-water kayaks to his truck's camper shell last weekend and started the long drive from Newport Beach to Lake Placid, N.Y. Zollitch, Jim Terrell and a handful of other Olympic-style canoeists and kayakers who train at the Newport Aquatics Center, are on their way to Lake Placid in hopes of qualifying June 7-8 for this summer's World Canoeing Championships in Poland.

Call it brightness backlash. When neon clothes first swept the beach scene more than two years ago, even serious surfers wore them. But now that electric tints are back for yet another season, and moms, pops and kids coast-to-coast are into the trend, real surfers are calling it a wipeout. They have demoted neon to dilettante status. And they're wearing earth tones instead.
