Even before it was an official city the Huntington Beach Company constructed a pier that extended Main Street out into the Pacific Ocean. Though it has gone through many incarnations the pier is still there as a Huntington Beach landmark (that’s HB to the locals). In 1925 Duke Kahanamoku introduced a sport called surfing to HB and since then its steady rise in popularity has led to the city being called “Surf City U.S.A.” and the home of the U.S. Open of Surfing—drawing millions annually. The juxtaposition of sophistication and beach culture make this a natural location for Eric’s eclectic style. Hey Bro, let’s shoot the pier at the HB.
