US Open of Surf

We had a wild weekend in Huntington Beach, California, for the US Open of Surf. Local favorite Brett Simpson (Huntington Beach, CA), 25, took the title in the Mens division (and the $100,000 check), while Carissa Moore (Honolulu, HI), 17 nabbed the win for the ladies.

Presented by Hurley and Nike 6.0, the event was HUGE, with top billed performances and appearances by some of the heaviest hitters in action sports.

Weezer headlined on Saturday (a match made in SoCal heaven) as the action sports gods smiled on the crowd of 20,000 plus screaming pop-punk fans. They surprised everyone with an remix of Lady Gaga’s greatest hits (Rivers Cuomo donned a blond wig and all) as well as a rendition of MGMT’s single ‘Kids’.
