The City Of Huntington Beach Hands Kelly Slater The Key To Surf City

The City of Huntington Beach Mayor, Joe Carchio, will hand over the key to Surf City to Kelly Slater, 10X ASP World Surf champion, on Tuesday, June 21, at 6 PM in Downtown Huntington Beach. The ceremony will take place during Surf City Nights featuring MC, Pete Townend on Main Street and PCH. The event is co-hosted by The City of Huntington Beach and The Huntington Beach Downtown Business Improvement District, and sponsored by Jack’s Surfboard and Duke’s Huntington Beach.

“Huntington has been a very big part of my growing up. I spent endless hours as a teenager surfing the north side throughout the summer and south side during events, says Kelly Slater. “I used to change in the back of chuck dent surf shop and run through all the shops with my friends and my brother in between surfs. I had my first chance to surf against my hero, Tom Curren, at age 13 or 14 here in the Katin event. The city is a big part of surfing and so much of its history. I’m honored to be recognized here amongst so many of surfing’s greats over the years.”

The City of Huntington Beach will recognize Slater’s exceptional accomplishments in the world of surfing both on and off the turf. Slater, having competed at surfing events in Huntington Beach for nearly 30 years, continues to return each summer to compete in the US Open of Surfing. He is committed to protecting the world’s oceans and its marine inhabitants, using his influence and status to educate the public about important environmental issues. Additionally, Slater was nationally recognized by the U.S. House of Representatives with a (unanimous) bipartisan resolution passed in May 2011, recognizing his outstanding and unprecedented achievements in the world of surfing and for being an ambassador of the sport and excellent role model.
