Hansen Surf Shop, widely known as the premier surf retailer, is celebrating their 50th anniversary and is my selection for "Business of the Year, 2011."

Each year the leadership of the California State Assembly recognizes the contributions that small businesses make to California by sponsoring "California Small Business Day" in the Capitol.

Hansen's is a unique destination in North San Diego County, providing excellent employment opportunities along with high-quality, desirable products for its customers. I selected Hansen's as the 74th Assembly District's Small Business of the Year because the Hansen family's commitment to excellence has developed into a strong business model. I've had the opportunity to shop at Hansen's over the years and appreciate their generosity through community programs like ''Goods for Grades' which rewards kids for excelling in school.

Widely known for its 16,000 square foot shop stocked with fashionable swimwear and signature surfboards, Hansen's was founded in 1961 in Oahu by Don Hansen. Now located in the city of Encinitas, Hansen's is run by family members Josh, Heidi and Christian.

Customers are treated like family, a major reason for the retailer's longevity and success. Family Labradors affectionately greet customers and some devoted employees boast they've enjoyed serving clients at this popular shop for 30 years. Congratulations!
