Chris MacDonald with Mayor Huntington Beach


Chris MacDonald Contributor Events Writer Photographer



Chris MacDonald, a California native, has provided incredible events coverage to California Beaches site for a number of years. With excellent memory for details, he is able to get the story, the names of the players, and bring it back and have it compiled within minutes of the event, itself.


Focused on community involvement, his favorite beat has been Huntington Beach where MacDonald was born and grew up. Attending schools such as Hope View, Mesa View, and Fountain Valley High School, Chris won awards for his citizenship during his school years.


Recently MacDonald was the recipient of the Mayor's Award, presented by Huntington Beach Mayor Debbie Cook.


The Huntington Beach Downtown BID ambassador, member of the Huntington Beach Historical Society, former board member of the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum, and owner of newsletter, enjoys playing tennis, basketball, and most of all, covering events in Huntington Beach.
