The US Open of Surfing is now open!
Once again, the event this year was sponsored by Hurley and Nike 6.0. If you all can remember last years epic contest, you’d remember that Hurley put up a whooping $100,000 purse for the winner of the contest. That winner was lucky enough to be none other then the home town hero and Hurley team rider Brett Simpson! While the money was a handsome reward, so was the surf! A huge south swell rocked the HB peir, calling for big double overhead sets and suicidal floaters!
This year it seems to be a bit more mellow surf wise. The waves have been decent/standard Huntington Beach, but the crowds have seemed to grow. Could it be the popularity of action sports? Could it be al
l the beautiful people? Or could it be the line up of entertainers that the sponsors brought out? This year big name acts like Hawaii’s Iration and California’s Timmy Curren rocked the stage, giving spectators and competitors alike something to bob their heads to.
