US Open of Surfing
Huntington Beach’s nickname is Surf City. And it lives up to it in one of the biggest events of the year when the US Open of Surfing takes place.
We got down to the beach for the last day of contest and it was packed. Even though the day started off cloudy and cold, we parked no closer than 2 miles to the sand. Goes to show how many people also had the same idea. But as if the Sun knew how important of a day it was, it eventually burnt through all the cloud cover. The day turned into your classic SoCal beach day. We went on to enjoy walking around through the booth area and getting a prime spot on the sand to play around and soak in the sun and fun.
It turns out 10-time world champion Kelly Slater took the title. That boy good!
