"Orange County is the cultural center of the surf world and Huntington Beach is like the heartbeat" says surfing pioneer Corky Carroll - and he's right!  With 10 miles of clean, sandy beaches and year-round surf, "HB" is home to more than 50 surf competitions each year, including the world's largest surf contest - Vans US Open of Surfing.

11-time world surfing champ Kelly Slater was presented with a key to the City in 2011, and surf icons like recent US Open of Surfing Champions Brett Simpson and Courtney Conlogue call HB home.  In addition, HB is the birthplace of world fashion trends emanating from local companies including Quicksilver, Roxy and Surfline.
