U2 guitarist wants a piece of Malibu hills

U2 guitarist David "The Edge" Evans is moving ahead with plans to build a mini-development of five homes high atop the hills of Malibu, CA, despite the objections of local residents.

The five mountaintop mansions, sitting on 156 acres, would feature panoramic views and will be built to Gold LEED standards.

Residents argue that this project could lead to water run-off, land erosion, wildlife endangerment and, of course, obstruction of views.

We can't help but wonder, wouldn't the most environmentally friendly mansion be the one that isn't built at all?

The development is currently awaiting review by the California Coastal Commission.

Rob Bain, Layne Beachley, and Dave Macaulay have taken out the Azores Airlines World Masters Championship in the Grand Masters, Women's Masters and Men's Masters divisions held in good three-foot surf at Praia de Santa Barbara.
