I'm surprised Santa Monica isn't up there, actually there are a decent amount of places missing. Either way I would've still gone with Seaside Heights.

Santa Monica has a pier and the 2nd or 3rd (can't remember which one) promanade - not really a boardwalk and i am sure I missed some

I have been to San Diego many times and never knew there was a boardwalk or Santa Cruz for that matter so sorry for any i missed

There are also many smaller ones, probably at least 6 more in Jersey alone

Seaside Heights has the "Situation" and "Snookie" but in all honesty I hate that portrayal of the Jersey Shore - that is the exception not the rule

You didn't know Santa Cruz had a boardwalk? Wow, it is a well renowned boardwalk in the US and the oldest on the West Coast, albeit there are not many.

When I think of Boardwalks, I think of NJ. Not sure which is the best, so I picked AC

Lol, that is such a stereotype, I grew up going down to the Jersey Shore every summer, you never used to see that back in the day.

There isn't technically a wooden "boardwalk" in San Diego or Santa Monica. The path along the beach is concrete as is the case across all of Southern CA. There is the Santa Monica Pier with amusement rides as well as Belmont Park in San Diego but those aren't the stereotypical "boardwalks" you're probably referring to but I suppose is somewhat similar.
