I read Shop-Eat-Surf at every opportunity, and I waited too long to sign up for the Executive Edition. It’s timely, relevant and clearly “from the industry, for the industry.

Seventies Sessions in Huntington Beach

Press Release:

 

SEVENTIES SURFBOARD CULTURE RETURNS TO HUNTINGTON BEACH THIS WEEKEND

 

In the true spirit of the decade of the Seventies, this weekend in Huntington Beach as part of the new “Surf City Days” weekend the inaugural “Seventies Sessions” event will take place.

 

In a celebration of the surfboard culture of the Seventies in Huntington Beach this event inspired by the Golden Breed Expression Sessions on Hawaii's North Shore in the early Seventies, these events were less about competition without judges, scores, winners and losers but about the creative expression of wave riding.

 

The “Seventies Sessions” will be no different, with a congregation of forty-eight(48) participants gathering in front of the Waterfront Hilton to surf from 8.00a.m. until 1.00p.m. and then retire across the street to the hotel and drink a few beers and “Talk Story” on those who surfed best and the boards they bought to ride.

 

Participants have to bring their own boards and they must have been made under a Huntington Beach surfboard label in the time period of the Seventies.

 

Some of those surfboard brands are still around like Chuck Dent, Randy Lewis, Greek and Robert August, some have left town like Infinity and Walden and others are extinct like Plastic Fantastic, RC, Hawk, David Nuuhiwa/Dyno, Carl Hayward, Bronzed Aussies, Wayne Brown, Corky Carroll Spacesticks, Sunline, Creative Designs and Gordie.

 

The format is much the same as the original North Shore event, with four one hour heats of twelve and one final one hour heat “Free For All” with everyone invited to participate.

 

Event producer Peter “PT” Townend of The ActivEmpire(ATE) says “ I was in the last of the original Golden Breed Expression Sessions on the North Shore and that's where the inspiration for this event is coming from only with HB flavor”.
