It’s back!!!! Starting July 31st– August 8th is the annual 2010 US Open of Surfing at Huntington Beach Pier. The 2010 US Open of Surfing is presented by Nike 6.0, Hurley and Converse. This is an Action Sports All-Star week, music festival and mega fashion showdown all rolled into one. Here’s just a brief overview of what’s in store: Surf: There’s no surf stadium like the Huntington Beach Pier and it remains the Headliner at the US Open, with five separate events, 300-plus competitors and more than $300,000 in prize money on the table. If you’re a surf fan, there’s no doubt your hero will be here. ASP World Tour Prime Event: Legends like Rob Machado, heavy hitters like Mick Fanning and CJ Hobgood, rising stars like Owen Wright and Dusty Payne plus 2009 US Open Champ Brett Simpson. Skate: This year, Converse Coastal Carnage will not only return, but up the ante with a more impressive roster of riders, a bigger and more challenging course, and a larger prize purse of $75,000. BMX: With $50,000 up for grabs and 20 of the world’s best BMX riders in attendance, you can bet on seeing something amazing. Featuring icons of BMX, like Scotty Cranmer and Daniel Dhers, are joined by today’s heroes, such as Garrett Reynolds and Brett Banasiewicz, as they look to dethrone last year’s winner, Ryan Guettler. Walk the Walk: To call it the world’s largest high school fashion show is an understatement because Hurley’s Walk the Walk added a whole new layer of opportunities in 2010. The five schools with the most votes are now here at the US Open and will be competing for a $25,000 grant. The world’s biggest high school fashion show featuring five talented schools that made it through the grueling video challenge process: Huntington Beach High School, Pearl City High School, Toms River High School, New Jersey, Lincoln High School, San Diego and a wildcard to be named soon. Walk the Walk empowers the youth to bring out their creative best. Every year, they raise the level and put together something worthy of Fashion Week. To date, more than $150,000 has been donated to schools from the Walk the Walk program. Music: Every evening from 4-7 p.m., a free concert at the Microphone for Youth stage. Featuring bands you love. Art: A handful of notable artists will put their thumbprint on the US Open, from exhibits to live murals. For more information on this very exciting event you can call 424-653-1900.
