Local Hero: Bob "The Greek" Bolen

  Huntington’s Amazing Mind
  Even though The Greek’s tag name comes from his grandparent’s ancestry, Bob   Bolen is practically as local as the HB Pier itself. He graduated from Bolsa   Grande High School in Garden Grove and first took to the Huntington waters in   1958. The Greek was groomed on the shores of Orange County, namely Dana Point   and HB and his passion for wave riding quickly blossomed along with his   surfing abilities. Sharing waves with such notables as Dick Dale and Mickey   Muñoz, he also managed to finish near the top of surf competition rankings   during the early days.
  Aside from his talent in the water, Bolen exemplifies the spirit of   Huntington Beach’s unique innovation in countless forms. Beginning as a board   builder, his Surfboards by The Greek business soon blossomed into a surf shop   in town – a legacy that lasted from 1960 until 1980. His constant quest for   advancement allowed him to begin experimenting with the surfboard fin. The   Greek invented, designed and patented the “Turbo Tunnel” fin which allows   water to flow through the fin providing maximum turning and control.



As if   that wasn’t enough, Bolen also is a successful Real Estate broker with   Huntington Beach Reality. Along with the Real Estate office, he runs Bob   Bolen’s Surf Museum. Within the museum are numerous surfboards, photographs,   inventions, and various surfing artifacts which highlight the cultural and   industrial spectrum of the sport.
  By providing immeasurable contributions to local society, which range from   sponsorships to the environment, Bolen has deeply entrenched himself in the   HB community. His concerns for justice and well-being have brought him in on   many City Council meetings. He also sits on the Board for a Downtown Business   Improvement District, which began in 1994. And now with his well deserved   induction to the Surfing Walk of Fame, The Greek’s will always remain a part   of Huntington Beach history.
