In Rincon they call this the rock dance, an effort surfers must endure to access their favorite surfing spots.
In Huntington Beach, it is better described as the boulder bop. Surfers, sunbathers, and pet owners can save time by accessing the beach via a set of boulders placed along the cliffs along Pacific Coast Highway near Golden West Street in Huntington Beach.
The cliffs look like they are in a state of erosion, so fences are in position to keep people from going too close to the edge and falling 20 or 30 feet.
The cliffs give HB its character and are the closest thing the city has to a mountain. Most of the beach is flat--very flat!
