Venice Beach “Polar Bear” Agnew Skate Plaza: The Day After.

The day after the official hooplah ended and all the politicians had gone home and the after party revelers had walked the beach at sunrise, Geri Lewis, Jesse Martinez and various Venice Surf and Skateboard Association members were still making sure the Dennis “Polar Bear” Agnew Skate Plaza at Venice Beach was running smoothly. You can’t get any more real than that.

High Winds Wail Venice

Today the Santa Ana Winds scattered palm fronds, tipped over signs and cooled the air around Venice. The new skate park, which hasn’t seen a really windy day for the better part of five months, got the brunt of the sand strewn wind but was still going off the hook with skater kids enjoying life. says we should see sunny weather in the high 60’s throughout the rest of the week.
