2012 US Open Surfing

Jul 26, 2012

Whoa California! Get down to Huntington Beach and sink into the ultimate Californian lifestyle… a surfing comp. The US Open of Surfing will kick off on July 28th in Huntington Beach for what has become one of the most anticipated surf, music and lifestyle events of the year. Over three quarters of a million fans and onlookers will flock to the pier, showcasing the best in surf, skate, music, and art.

The 2012 US Open of Surfing will run from July 28 to August 5. All events are free and open to the public and can be viewed live daily at www.usopenofsurfing.com. With more than 3 million webcast viewers last year, the webcast broke viewership records and expects to deliver content to even more viewers worldwide this year.

Rocking the Rankings

The US Open is a pivotal point on the ASP World Tour for both the men and women. For the men, a win at the US Open – a North America ASP Men’s Prime event – will earn them valuable points right before the coveted ASP Top 34 rotation. And for the women, the US Open of Surfing marks the final stop on the 2012 ASP World Title Tour. With everything on the line and a close race for the World Title, the US Open will potentially crown a women’s World Champion in Surf City this summer.

John John Florence is the dominating #1 surfer on the ASP tour right now. He is from… where else? You guessed it… Hawaii. He’s one of the best barrel riders in the world right now, but he’ll have to pull off more tricks on the small waves of Huntington Beach.

On the Women’s Tour, it is a much closer race for the #1 surfer ranking. Only a couple of thousand point separate the top three women surfers:

  1. Courtney Conlogue – 9730 pts
  2. Malia Manuel - 8280 pts
  3. Sally Fitzgibbons – 7000 pts

Coupled with one-of-a-kind retail and brand experiences, public skate courses, movie premieres, 100 interactive exhibits, autograph signings, DJs and giveaways, it will be a summer to remember at the US Open of Surfing
