Surf festival at Doheny takes beachgoers for a nostalgic ride – Orange County Register


Old classic Woodies lined the parking lot, transporting surfers back to the days when the wagons were the popular transportation for cruising up and down the coast searching for waves.

Some of the boards used decades ago — big, heavy, wooden longboards — were stacked up on display, showcased by the collectors who explained the rich history.

The Doheny Surf and Art Festival, in its 17th year, kicked off Saturday, June 22, and continues Sunday, with 7,000 attendees expected over the two days at the Dana Point beach.

The event has everything surf: from paintings and photos to crafts and jewelry made from the sea.
