Huntington Beachcruiser Meet: Huntington Beach, CA

Roger Rohrdanz March 12, 2023 Events


The Surf City morning weather was a little brisk for the 18th Annual Huntington Beachcruiser Meet, but by 9 o’clock the sun was out and temperatures were in the mid-70’s.  Saturday started with participants arriving at the sold out event as early as 4:30am, by 6:00am Main Street was full of 100+ “Beachcruisers”!  The Pier Plaza area was where most of the Woodies parked and the adjacent parking lot contained another 125 or so Cruisers.  Despite the weak turnout on Sunday, it was time for “Woodies on the Pier.”  8 to 10 Woodies and several other cool hot rods got to park on the pier.

The original idea for a Beachcruiser Meet came after the 20th annual Wavecrest Woodie Show in 2000.  Many fine “50s, 60s, and 70s era “beach” vehicles were seen parked on the side streets adjacent to the show.  The “Woodies only” event excluded them from participation.  Therefore the theme was set for an all-inclusive event that welcomed all types of “beach cruising” vehicles.  And Surf City has embraced the idea for 18 straight years.

The pier and downtown area were packed with spectators.  The stores and restaurants were filled with people enjoying the eclectic collection of cars on display.

This weekend honors the Golden Age of surfing when we hauled our board, our buddies and our babes to Surf City.
