In addition to extreme sports, you'll find extreme everything at the US Open of Surfing. Extreme beauty with bikini-clad ladies in skin tight itty-bitty swim suits mix with not-so-beautiful g-string clad gents riding bicycles down Main Street. From cute to 'please!don't wear that', you're going to see an amazing array of bodies, fashion and just about anything (can't go nude, however, because HB is a clothing required beach).

 

Attracting close to 1 million attendees, the beach event is held annually and had been around in various incarnations for several decades.  In its current form, it is pure clean fun with lots of bowl competitions for skate, surf and bike, lots of musical acts performing just a song or two (there's seldom a full-on concert, as they try to keep the crowds from becoming overwhelming, thus avoiding a riot from the OP Pro event that was disbanded), and lots of sand. Tons of it, to be precise.

 

For those who simply can't make it, or for those who hold a fondness for the event, this web page is  a tribute with break-out video and photo pages to help commemorate the US Open. It comes usually in late July and is sometimes also held in August. It lasts from one Friday to the following week Sunday finale, and it offers free entertainment, appealing to all ages of folks from tiny tots to older adults.

 

Get your bikini or trunks, pack up some sunscreen and some cash (for food), and head over to Huntington Beach California, surfing usa, for the time of your life at the US Open of Surfing and Beach Games.

 

In addition to the US Open of Surfing, Huntington Beach has annual, repeat events that are family oriented, offering world class entertainment for all ages, and usually at quite affordable prices. It's the beach, afterall! It doesn't cost a dime.

Where to stay during US OPEN? The expensive hotels such as the Hyatt & Hilton will hit you up for over $300/night. Most surfing enthusiasts don't have that kind of cash, so you might consider checking out the Extended Stay.  The hidden gems that allow you to hop on a bus for around $1, and go 5 miles to down-coast to HB from Sunset Beach are Best Western, Ramada (on the beach) and Sanatra Inn (on the beach).

 

Where to eat?  Ruby's on the HB Pier is great!

 

What to see when visiting?  Catalina Island is a must!

 

Getting to Huntington Beach? By car, exit San Diego Freeway (405) at Beach Blvd. and drive toward Huntington Beach. Stay at Beach Blvd. till it dead-ends at the beach. You can pull into a parking lot and park for the day. By plane, the closest airport is John Wayne / Orange County Airport.
