US Open of Surfing 2012

The US Open of Surfing begins Saturday, July 28, 2012 and qualifying rounds continue all week, with the semi-finals and finals of the Pro Men’s event and Pro Women’s event taking place on Sunday, August 5, 2012.  The world’s best surfers are expected to compete, and include big name surfing legends Kelly Slater, Julian Wilson, and 2-time champion Brett Simpson in the Men’s event, and current World Champion Carissa Moore and five-time World Champ Stephanie Gilmore in the Women’s event.  The Pro Junior semi-finals and finals take place a day earlier on Saturday, August 4, 2012.  The event is sponsored by Nike, Hurley, and Converse, and includes a weeklong skateboarding championship in the nearby skate bowl and huge festival on the beach. 

This premier surfing competition takes place next to the Huntington Beach Pier, just down the street from the Newport Channel Inn.  Stadium seating has been constructed on the beach for the event and thousands of spectators are expected to attend.  Overnight stays should be booked ASAP as availability is disappearing fast!

I definitely got to check it out next year. I'm not the best surfer around but just being able to watch these experts do their thing makes me glad I took it up.

I'd love to put my surf training to the test and join some amateur contests first. Surfing professionally had been my long time dream.
