The U.S. Open of Surfing celebrated its 50th anniversary in a big way this year. From a macking South swell that brought overhead surf to the main event to the total carnage of having hundreds of thousands of people on Main Street in Huntington Beach, this year’s event will go down in the books as one of the most memorable in history. Local hero Brett Simpson took home top honors (as well as $100,000) in the Men’s Division and Courtney Conlouge (also an HB local) won the Women’s Division—that’s what is known in the business as a fairy tale ending folks!
Aside from the main event there were literally dozens of parties, autograph signings, store openings, video premieres, et cetera that ran in conjunction with the event. So, for your viewing pleasure, here are a few links to the ones we made it out to.
