Dark Arts — Editors’ Pick: Industry Innovator. Founded in 2019 by San Diego native and veteran board builder Justin Ternes (above) after a 21-year quest, Dark Arts is revolutionizing the way surfboards are made and perform. From a 7,500-square-foot factory in Barrio Logan, Dark Arts leverages the lightweight compound of carbon fiber to create a design that unites speed and agility with improved durability. Dark Arts collaborates with notable surfboard shapers around the world while utilizing best environmental practices to offer boards that are among the lightest, strongest, fastest, and most enduring. But don’t just take our word for it — in early September, Brazilian professional surfer Filipe Toledo won the World Surf League men’s world championship at Trestles on a Dark Arts x Sharp Eye Surfboard. darkartssurf.com  Mia Park

San Diego Wave FC & Snapdragon Stadium — Editors’ Pick: A Perfect Match. The San Diego Wave FC expansion team of the National Women’s Soccer League did not make a quiet entrance in 2022 as the newest addition to the 12-team league. Consistently near the top of the rankings and captained by three-time Olympian Alex Morgan (photographed here, above), the team cemented their place in the San Diego sports landscape with a record-setting, sold-out debut at their new home venue and equally impressive new San Diego treasure, Snapdragon Stadium. In partnering locally with nonprofits including Common Goal’s Play Proud initiative, The Chicano Federation, The Sports Bra Project, and Challenged Athletes Foundation – Operation Rebound, Wave FC is proving that they’re here not just to play hard, but to also have a lasting impact in their community.  sandiegowavefc.com, snapdragonstadium.com  Deanna Murphy
