Profile: Pearl Turton was the best, ahead of her time. She made female surfing an art form and led the charge on women being represented by women in this sport. Later on she supported younger surfers coming up - Pearl is still keeping an eye on what's going, and loves surfing, still.

When Pigasso Met Mootisse read by Eric Close
By Nina Laden. Read by Eric Close.
What begins as a neighborly overture between a painterly pig and an artsy cow escalates into a monumental modern art mess! Before you can say paint-by-numbers, the two artists are calling each other names and building a fence between them. But it turns out that what divides them also reunites them.
