“Surfboards In The Sand” A Huge Success In HB

On Saturday morning a new surfing tradition made its way to the beach on the north side of Huntington Beach Pier called “Surfboards In The Sand”. The event had surfers from all over Orange County and beyond bringing their shred sticks and simply sticking them in the sand to commemorate the surf culture of Huntington Beach, as well as to protect our oceanic and coastal environments. Never before had so many surfers been in one place at one time showing off their surfboards and posed for a giant group photo. Sponsored by Rip Curl, TransWorld SURF, and the Huntington Beach Marketing and Visitors Bureau, the goal of Surfboards in The Sand was to promote awareness for sustaining the coastal environment with a portion of the event proceeds contributed to the Surfrider Foundation and Orange County Coastkeeper organizations in support of their service to the ocean and beaches of Southern California. Lucky attendees also were treated to a concert afterward that included Tom Curren among others. The event was a huge success and everyone’s looking forward to topping this year’s turnout with an even bigger amount of ripsticks in the sand.—Aaron Checkwood
