Our Story

On June 25, 1965, Jack and Jeanette Haley opened Captain Jack’s on Pacific Coast Highway in Sunset Beach. Jack was a local boy – growing up in Seal Beach, attending Huntington Beach High School and Long Beach State University. Surfing was his passion – forever chasing the perfect wave whether in California, Hawaii, Mexico or France.

In 1959, Jack won the champion title of the inaugural United States Surfing Championship, an honor that led to many tributes, including an induction into the Surfing Walk of Fame and the Surfers’ Hall of Fame. He is considered a surfing pioneer and hometown hero.
