Coming up next week is one of the longest-running surf events in U.S. history, the Katin Pro/Am Team Challenge on the north side of the Huntington Beach Pier. The waiting period is Jan. 12 to 17, and the contest will be on the best two days of surf. Last year’s event saw some epic 4- to 8-foot surf, and the boys were going off. Local standout Brett Simpson was the winner, edging teammate Rob Machado for the win in the individual competition. Both surfers rode for Hurley, which took first place in team honors.

This last week in Surf City sure has been nice. The surf's been up, the weather has been warm and the beach's have been starting to get more filled up. Summer is just around the corner. I could take a few months of this. Well, its that time of year again, as the ballots have gone out for the Huntington Beach Surfing Walk of Fame. The surfers were nominated based on their achievements within the surfing community during the last 10 years, with the exception of the surf pioneers who, to be nominated, must have reached the age of 50 or be deceased.

Mike Sciacca When Tom Curren was inducted into the Surfers' Hall of Fame last August in front of Huntington Surf and Sport, he was introduced as an athlete who brought with him a style and rhythm to wave riding that was "beyond belief." Curren, who burst onto the surf scene in 1980, and went on to become a three-time world surf champion, reintroduced himself on the local scene Saturday in a new capacity: as a singer and songwriter. He hopes to make his style and rhythm legendary again in the music world.

Surfer Kelly Slater may hail from Florida, but if he ever had any doubt that he's welcome in Huntington Beach, he'll know for sure Tuesday. That evening, Mayor Joe Carchio plans to present the 10-time world champion with the Key to Surf City. According to spokeswoman Laurie Frymire, the city gives out the key only two or three times a year, with Miss Huntington Beach an annual recipient. The key is six inches long and made of metal, with the Huntington Beach logo embedded on it. While the key has previously been presented on a cord for wearing, Slater will receive his on a plaque.
