Surfing Surf City, Huntington Beach, California
Huntington Beach won the officially trademarked title of Surf City USA after a two-year-long battle with Santa Cruz. It may or may not have the premier wave, but Huntington does have a legendary surf culture, and it’s evidenced by more than crowded waves – the beach town is home to the International Surfing Museum, the Surfing Walk of Fame, and the Surfing Hall of Fame. If you get tired of watching and want to get in on the action, try taking lessons. Corky Carroll’s Surf School you can sign up for group lessons, private lessons, or even a series of five lessons to be used within a year.
