The Roaring ‘20s:
The Glory Days of Surfing in Corona del Mar

Tuesday, June 11 @ 7 pm

Please join us for a lecture from Paul Burnett, co-author of Surfing Newport Beach the Glory Days of Corona del Mar, and a tubular evening reminiscing about the radical waves of the Roaring ‘20s.

In the 1920s, Corona del Mar’s shores were filled with surfers. The natural sand bars occurring between Santa Monica and San Diego made for perfect waves for surf riders in that era. Ideal conditions combined with the presence of pioneers such as Duke Kahanamoku, Tom Blake, the Vultee brothers, and Pete Peterson brought notoriety to Corona del Mar’s surfing culture.
