Posted by Jamie Williams — September 5, 2017

1504644927NEWPORT BEACH, CA - Now a beautiful tranquil stretch of sand and waves, Echo 56 beach in Newport Beach has played a little known, but important role in shaping Southern California history.


Surterre Properties and Hammond Moreno Associates- Cassie Hammond, Chris Moreno and Ann E. Metzger- celebrate the history of Echo 56 with their six newest homes for sale located here. These beautiful Echo 56 new construction luxury homes are just steps away from this famous surf break.


The Newport Beach lifeguard tower 56 marks the spot of this beautiful 100-yard stretch of sand. In the early eighties, Echo 56 became a launch pad for breakaway trends and a universe of 80’s cool. It was a place where there was a marriage of surf and fashion. It was at the Echo 56 beach that the most legendary surfers in the history of the sport wore the styles of bright neon colors, Aquanet pompadours, Wayfarers, and bright wetsuits and board shorts. 

Out of Echo 56 famous surfers such as Danny Kwock, Preston Murray, Jeff Parker and a young Kelly Slater emerged, and entrepreneurs of famous brands such as O’Neil, Quicksilver, Rip Curl and Stussy got their foothold.


But the real star is still the wave. You can now enjoy beautiful beach living at these Echo 56 properties. Echo 56 features six premier detached properties are currently available offering three bedrooms plus an office/den or additional fourth bedroom. Each home offers a contemporary open concept that includes a great room, chef’s island kitchen, soaring ceilings, full-floor sprawling master suite with spa-quality bathroom, rooftop deck with big Catalina Island and ocean views, artisan tilework, two-car garage with side-by-side parking, fully enclosed outdoor shower, and patios—all in a quaint 24-home seaside community. Convenient to John Wayne Airport, Pacific City in Huntington Beach, shopping, and restaurants, and of course, you are just moments away from one of the most famous beaches in Southern California history.
