ABOUT US Open of Surfing Huntington Beach
The WQS (World Qualifying Series) is a professional surfing tour that brings us the prestigious 6-Star event known as the US Open of Surfing.
In addition to a weeks worth of high performance surfing at its best on the often fickle summer peaks of Huntington Beach, the US Open provides an atmosphere that attracts pretty much anyone that ventures nearby. Surfing is just one part of the equation that makes up this event. Spectators wander around the contest village for hours checking out the sights and sounds brought to them by the many sponsors and their exciting campaigns that allow for abundant freebies, giveaways, contests and more.
There are skateboard and bmx demos/contests, exhibits of all sorts, fashion shows, shopping venues, and even a free live music soundstage with local and internationally known bands serving as the main event or background soundtrack depending on your tastes. In short, there is something for everyone, even if that activity is people watching (which is at its best here!).
