HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. - May 6, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Surfing in Huntington Beach

Local author Mark Zambrano will be available to sign copies of book


Officially known as Surf City USA®, Huntington Beach is a surf town like no other. Ever since Hawaiian transplant George Freeth "walked on water" beside the famous Huntington Beach Pier in 1914, the city has had a storied relationship with surf culture that endures to this day.

Combining a rough-and-tumble working-class spirit leftover from the city's epic oil boom with its role as a popular beach resort destination, Huntington Beach has produced some of surfing's most memorable personalities and moments.

From legendary surfing heroes to long-standing competitions and titans of industry, these vintage photographs trace the evolution of this once small seaside settlement into a West Coast surf mecca, where surfing truly is a way of life.

About the Author:

Huntington Beach resident and author Mark Zambrano has compiled an in-depth visual history spanning over 100 years in one of America's most iconic surf towns. Using images and stories gathered from city and county archives, generations of surfers and their families, local libraries and businesses, renowned photographers, and the Huntington Beach community, this collection offers a unique perspective on surfing in Huntington Beach, with many never-before-seen photographs.
