Surf City here I come… Jan and Dean immortalized Surf City, written by Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. I imaging they are talking about Huntington Beach and not Santa Cruz.

There is a hot debate going on between the two cities, about which city is to be claimed as Surf City. The debate started in 2005 when Huntington Beach decided they wanted to patient the Surf City U.S.A. for themselves. Christina Glynn says “Wherever the waves are good and you’re feeling in the mood to enjoy the surroundings, that’s where Surf City is.” I think Christina may have something there.
