Not Dead Yet
My apologies for the sorry state of this site the last couple of years. As a native of Huntington Beach (living there 18 years) and resident of San Diego county for the last 11 years, I will always have a bit of seawater running in my blood. I love the beach and everything to do with it. The last couple of years have seen changes forced on my practice by economic changes, and a change in my available side-project time resulting from a new commitment to homeownership in San Marcos. It doesn’t help that most of what I read on coastal access and beach use is also fairly depressing as a result of the ongoing financial pressure on all levels of government here in California, and the distraction of cleaning up a hacker attack on my server that left this and several other sites damaged for a while.
That said, summer is coming. I have a new Grain Hand Plane that needs some field testing, which damn well better lead to more beach time than I had the last couple of summers. Expect at least a resumption of the Visual Law posts in the near future.

Cal. Coastal Commission Like them or not, they are one of the biggest players around when it comes to coastal access in California.
