Paul Burnett, local historian and surfer, will talk about the First Pacific Coast Surf Board Championship.
Ninety years ago on August 5, 1928, the Corona del Mar Surf Club hosted the first Pacific Coast Surf Board Championships. There were contestants from Santa Monica, Santa Ana, Redondo Beach and Los Angeles, making a total of 15 entries. This contest paved the way for future surfing competitions and it all started with the swells at Corona del Mar. Paul Burnett, who co-authored
Surfing Newport Beach: The Glory Days of Corona del Mar with his wife Claudine, will discuss the history and highlights of this Corona del Mar historical event.
