Modern-day surfing finds in origins in The OC in 1908 when Hawaiian-born pioneer surfer George Freeth showed the Southern Californians how to ride a wave while balancing on a board. In 1920, Corona del Mar in Newport Beach was the site of the inaugural Pacific Coast Surf Riding Championships. Over the next hundred years, Orange County solidified its position as surf capital of the world as beachwear, surfboard, surf magazines, surf organizations, and major pro-surf competitions found a home in the beaches of Huntington, Laguna, Newport, Dana Point, and San Clemente. Trestles, The Wedge, Huntington Beach pier, and San O continue to bring infamy to the coastal destination.
