“Surfhenge” consists of four 16-20 foot high surfboard shaped arches, weighing up to three-quarters of a ton each, which are believed to be the largest colored acrylic moldings ever cast. Alluding to giant surfboards stuck in the sand, the huge colored shapes of Surfhenge pay homage to the proud surfing heritage of Imperial Beach. Surfhenge and the refurbished IB Portwood Pier Plaza were dedicated in July 18, 1999.
