It was created by a sculptor who as provided other statues for Surf City, and is known for his athlete statues particularly.
When visiting, head for Huntington Surf & Sport. It is there you'll discover this statue in the stone courtyard in front of the building. Along with it you will find a tribute to surfing with hand & footprints, plus surfers' signatures in the stones. Very cool if you're into surfing and if not, then it's mildly amusing.
