Q: Huntington Beach has two surfing memorials— isn’t that redundant?
A: Maybe so, but the Surfing Walk of Fame and the Surfers’ Hall of Fame have somewhat different criteria and methods for induction. And what’s wrong with having twice as many nice things to say about skilled sportsmen? Anyway, as you might expect from a bunch of laid-back surfers, the rivalry between the organizations on opposite sides of Main Street is pretty friendly. Sometimes, when they honor the same notable surfer, the two split the airfare for the inductee.
