Huntington Beach, CA: Huntington Beach, a.k.a., ‘Surf City USA®’, has been voted the USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice contest for ‘Best California Beach’.

A panel of experts narrowed a list of over 100 beach towns and cities throughout the Golden State down to 20, before the voting was opened up to the readers of USA TODAY.

The title comes just a few months before Huntington Beach attempts to break two Guinness World Records for “World’s Largest Surfboard” and “Most People Riding a Surfboard at Once” in June. Over 70 professional surfers, surfing celebrities, HB lifeguards, and local heroes will pile onto a custom made 12-metre long, over 900-kilogram surfboard to ride one epic wave at the famed Huntington Beach Pier.

Leading up to the event, local surfboard shapers and boat builders will come together to craft this massive board, designed after one of the famous short boards ridden by Brett Simpson, Hurley sponsored professional surfer and Huntington Beach local. Following the record breaking event, the surfboard will be mounted at the International Surfing Museum in downtown Huntington Beach.

Huntington Beach, located in Orange County, celebrated 100 years of surfing history in 2014 and still remains one of the most popular surf beaches in the world. With kilometres of uninterrupted beach, consistent year-round waves, and extensive surf history and culture that include hosting the U.S. Open of Surfing every year, there’s no doubt this is a surfer’s paradise.
