The U. S. Open of Surfing is the biggest surfing competition in the world and takes place each summer just up the beach from the Newport Channel Inn, near the Huntington Beach Pier. This event draws tens of thousands of fans and the world’s best surfers, including many that stay at the Newport Channel Inn during the competition.
The episode begins with Jenks, a New York City boy, wondering what it is like to be a surfer. Anastasia Ashley, rated among the top 50 female pro surfers and recent winner of the Pipeline Pro Competition, is filmed being interviewed by Surfer Magazine and Surfline.com, and offers very candid responses to Jenks' questions. She tries her best to teach Jenks to surf. The episode is an interesting behind-the-scenes look at the challenge of competitive surfing, and the artful filming makes you long for “a day at the beach”. Check your local TV listings for airing times!
