Every year, tens and thousands of teeny bops, surf fanatics, skate rats, and industry representatives gather to celebrate surfings most lucrative ASP event in Huntington Beach, CA :: THE US OPEN OF SURING! Hosted by the king of all sports brands (and child labor) NIKE, the event really gets better ever year with more money pumping into the contest. This year was my first experience at the US Open and it was a great one! Kilian and I took some time to meet up with my cousin Rebecca and her boyfriend Troy and headed down to the beach to watch all the action. I am bummed that Dane didn't win but happy that Julian held it down over Brazil. USA BABY. Big congrats to Montecito locals Lakey Peterson and Conner Coffin. You make our town proud! Other than the surfing, it was awesome to watch the skaters shred the Coastal Carnage bowl that Conversase (NIKE) put up. Congrats to BONES rider Ben Raybourn!
