As the summer days roll by, the anticipation for this year’s U.S. Open of Surfing at the Huntington Beach pier is growing faster than the lineup at Trestles. While the Honda Element Men’s and Women’s Pro, presented by O’Neill, and the Lost Pro Junior, promise surfing that surpasses years past, the TransWorld SURF Village will share the spotlight as the hottest spot on the beach at the only 6-star ASP surf competition in North America. Running from July 26-August 3, Philips Fusion featuring the Honda Element US Open of Surfing presented by O’Neill also features the world’s top skateboarders and BMX riders and two days of live music.
In between heats, check out the action going on in the TransWorld SURF Village. It’s here in this tropical maze that you’ll score an autograph from your favorite pro, a new subscription to TW SURF, or free stuff from the SURF Village partners. There will be plenty of crazy games to try your luck on and also an hour each day where we let our infamous TW Surf editor, Chris Cote, take over the stage and ask a pro those questions you’ve always wondered but never had the courage to ask. With all the contests, DJs, girls, and pros that will be dropping by, the TransWorld SURF Village is the place to show off your brand-new sunburn.
Check back with transworldsurf.com later this month for the schedule of TransWorld SURF Village events, what pros will be in the Village and how you can win loads of stuff on the beaach. Last year we gave away a signed Kelly Slater board. Think we can top that? Cruise down to Huntington to find out.
