Surf City A Wave of Activities
Written by SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel
From Main Street to the pier and up-and-down the beach there’s something going on now at Vans US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, CA – Surf City USA.
The nine-day festival – with surf, skate and BMX action – is a sports, arts and culture tour de force expected to draw half a million visitors.
Judges and fans are filling the stands watching the competitions.
Everyone’s sharing the stoke – from seasoned surfers to the littlest groms.
Harley-Davidson bikes gleam on the sand.
Jeeps beckon you to get behind the wheel.
Swatch has a spot for you to chill.
The Van Doren Village is open for fun and games.
Design your own customized bag or hat and check out the beach art.
Wahoo’s Tacos and nearby restaurants and shops have lots to tempt you.
And, for a look at how surfing began, stop by the International Surfing Museum exhibit The Origins of Surfing, featuring paintings by artist Ron Croci.
It’s a jam-packed week for the surfing tribe…and the welcome mat is out!
