Posted by on Mar 5, 2015 in Events, Featured, Huntington Beach | 0 comments

Monday, March 2, 2015 will be go down in history for us Surf City residents! For 20 magical minutes we went from Surf City to Snow City! Snow, Sand, Sun and Waves what more could you ask for? The fact that it melted within hours of falling didn’t disappoint us! Neither did the fact that it was hail and not actual snow if we want to get scientific about it. We had surf and snow for 1 day and for many long time Huntington Beach residents it was amazing and a sight to behold. Word traveled fast around here. Lesson plans stopped momentarily at our school and the kids and teachers headed to the windows and doors to watch this winter wonderland magic. The community came out to watch the pier and sand get layered in a blanket of...

Huntington Beach Surf School

Have your kids ever wanted to learn how to surf? Don’t know where to go? We have found the best place for your kids to learn how to surf in Orange County at the HB Surf School.
