US Open of Surfing 2013

The US Open of Surfing begins Saturday, July 20, 2013 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, July 28.  The world’s best surfers are expected to compete, and include big name surfing legend Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds, and defending 2012 champion Julian Wilson in the Men’s event, and current ASP Women’s World #1 Tyler Wright, local favorite Courtney Conlogue, and defending 2012 champion Lakey Peterson in the Women’s event.  The Pro Junior semi-finals and finals take place a day earlier on Saturday, July 27.  The event is sponsored by Vans, and the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP), and includes weeklong skateboarding and BMX championships in the nearby skate bowl and a huge festival on the beach.  All events are free and open to the public.

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!
