Surfing, Maybe CA's “Official” State Sport

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

Earlier this month, two California state legislators, Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance) and Ian Calderon (D-Whittier) introduced to their collegues a bill that would officially declare surfing to be California's "official" sport.

AB 1782 opens with the plea that: "Surfing is an iconic California sport, and is home to a number of world-famous surf breaks like Malibu, Trestles, Mavericks, Rincon, Steamer Lane, and Huntington, which are destinations for both domestic and international surfers."
