Surf City History





When reading up on how Surf City got its name, we came across a host of Surf City's around the globe, surprisingly. In Topsail Island, North Carolina, there's an actually town or community called Surf City. Around the globe, locals, reporters and surfers, especially, call their spots Surf City for the waves and surfing they enjoy.

Manley, Australia;  Rincon, Puerto Rico; Surf City, New Jersey; Surf City California. Most seem to be born out of a local, adopted collection of events, races, and local press and public callings. We've not found any named for much more than a location close to the surf and ocean.  That's seems to be a unifying factor in these popular nicknames or official city names.
