Love, love, love! My daughter is a CA State Parks Lifeguard, and is working her second year at both HB State and Bolsa. I wanted to surprise her with both the “Bolsa” and “HB STATE” flags as a way of showing her how proud I am of her!
I grew up in HB in the 70’s. But I didn’t realize how absolutely right this pennant was until I unfurled it. The shade of blue and gold was exactly the shades of those days and my first pair of two-tone Vans. The felt is perfectly right texture. Every detail is absolutely the way I remember those sun soaked days. I could see this pennant in my room while putting on my two-tone Vans sneakers and my gold lighting bolt necklace before riding my bike to the “Two Flags” break at Bolsa Chica. This flag is bitcoin’.
These flags are so beautifully made and are really special. There is no wonder why they’re mostly sold out… everyone wants them. I have purchased several and will be buying more!
I saw one of these flags at a local surf shop and had to have one. After some research I found the artist who makes these flags in Newport Beach. When I received my first flag, I just had to order more of them. I gave some away as Christmas gifts to my surfing friends. My son is a competitive longboarder and I was able to purchase flags of the surf breaks where he placed in the top 3. Everybody LOVED their flag. I personally have my Seal Beach flag (hometown break) and my Bolsa flag (usual surf spot) on my sailboat flying as a pennant flags. I get lot’s of complements! These flags have a lot of character and are just cool looking!
I highly recommend these flags and I think you’ll love them.
