Surfiing Walk of Fameby: Chris MacDonald,

Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum Community Ambassador


The annual Surfing Walk of Fame is held in downtown Huntington Beach each July to coincide with the US Open of Surfing WQS (World Qualifying Series) 6 star event.

 

Honorees are selected during a process in which ballots are sent around the world. Those chosen are invited to the Huntington Beach event to be recognized for their contributions to the world of surfing.

 

On the paved sidewalks across the street from the world famous Huntington Beach Pier, engraved granite plaques commemorate international surfing greats. Recipients have included many of the names of surfing. The public is invited to the free ceremony in which honorees are given trophies and their sidewalk plaques are unveiled to the world. Throughout the year, millions of tourists walk past the plaques and photograph their families and friends in front of the the stones.


The public is also invited to see the Walk Of Fame's Exhibit in the Huntington Beach Surfing Museum at 411 Olive Avenue At 5th Street in downtown Huntington Beach. It's open daily. For more information contact: (714) 960-3483. The Website Is: http://www.surfingmuseum.org.
