2011 US Open of Surfing

Posted: Oct 24,2011 Written by  ASP

This Year's Nike US Open Surfing Championship is going down in style.  If you haven't seen the production behind the live webcast and the rest of event, be sure to check it out!  Event Sponsors Hurley, Converse and Nike 6.0 continue to elevate the event as the world's largest action sport festival which also includes Skate, BMX, Art, Music and Fashion shows, all of which are free to the public. 

Being there and checking it out first hand totally made my summer!  It is so great to see such a strong sport truly taking off, with thousands of people there to hang out and watch surfing.  Behind the scenes was a full on festival with concerts, food and tons of fun stuff to do for all! A new hurricane swell filtered in throughout the day Friday as the surfers were putting on a full-on air show.

To recap Fridays heats, you can find them on demand here:  http://www.usopenofsurfing.com/videos.cfm
