The 2002 Philips Fusion US OPEN TransWorld SURF Lounge

The Philips Fusion U.S. Open of Surfing will never be the same once TransWorld SURF pitches its tent and starts the party.

With the same enthusiasm and energy that TransWorld SURF has brought to the SIMA Surf Summit for the past three years, the TransWorld SURF Lounge promises to cause a ruckus at the Philips Fusion U.S Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach. As the TransWorld SURF Lounge comes together in a whirlwind of sponsors, events, music, and live television, you can be assured that the freshness and innovation that TransWorld SURF brings to the sport of surfing will be kicked up a notch far past the point of a rebellious revolution.

The TransWorld SURF Lounge will be unleashed upon the shores of Huntington Beach like a pack of frat boys around a freshly tapped keg. DJs, music, beach games, contests, and interactive video¿game sampling are only some of the goodies- the rest you’ll have to see to believe.

Count on a serious commotion from the top industry heads backing the Philips Fusion US Open of Surfing and the TransWorld SURF Lounge.

    In addition to the chaos in the TransWorld SURF Lounge, we thought we would mix it up with a live television show. On August 1, the TransWorld SURF Lounge will be featured on Fox’s morning news show Good Day Live. Be sure to tune in, or better yet, come down to the beach to hang out and watch TransWorld SURF Editor Chris Cote embarrass himself and ruin it for everyone. Look for three hours of special Philips Fusion U.S Open of Surfing and TransWorld SURF Lounge coverage in September on Fox Sports Net.

    The Philips Fusion U.S. Open of Surfing is August 1-4 at the Huntington Beach pier. The Lounge will be open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You don’t want to miss this one. It’s going to be a doozy.

    Bring it.
