Huntington Beach, CA,

This ASP Grade-4 Pro Junior event was the first in the nation’s history, offering more ratings points than any other event and providing a crucial venue for surfers looking to qualify for the Billabong ASP World Junior Championships.



Where to stay? 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.
