With 10 miles of sandy beaches that hold more than 50 surfing contests each year, Huntington Beach is the home of the U.S. Open of Surfing. As such, it has officially become known as “Surf City USA.” To honor the many national and international surf champions that have competed there, Pacific City has partnered with the Huntington Beach Surfing Walk of Fame and Jack’s Surfboards to create an Honor Wall on the second level, across from Bluegold and next to luxury fitness club Equinox.
The Surfing Walk of Fame Honor Wall, unveiled August 2021, includes a series of 12” x 12” brushed stainless steel placards adorned with the Surfing Wall of Fame logo and with each inductee’s name and category hand-painted on them. Industry greats like Kelly Slater, who is widely regarded as the greatest professional surfer of all time, and Bruce Brown, a pioneer in the surfing film business, are among those featured. There is also an exceptional 2’ x 5’ tribute to Duke Kahanamoku, the father of modern surfing. The Surfing Walk of Fame Honor Wall includes all of the surf champions from the organization’s long 28-year history, including 10 “local heroes,” 14 “women of the year,” 14 “surf pioneers,” 19 “surf culture,” and 14 “honor roll” inductees.
