The U.S. Open of Surfing & RVCA Team Signings
The U.S. Open of Surfing might bring obnoxious swarms of people to Huntington Beach every summer, but it also brings the world's best surfers, BMXers, skaters and motocross riders to town. The event spans over nine days which includes surf competitions for men, women, juniors and long boarders. The Open has a couple of boasting points which help secure that "Surf City USA" title Huntington snatched from Santa Cruz not too long ago: it's the only six-star Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) event in North America and is easily the world's largest surf contest.
Today, RVCA will be hosting three sessions of RVCA team signings with a delightful mix of appearances by Hawaiian big wave surfer Makua Rothman, artist/surfer/Japanese Motors front man Alex Knost, dance-y white boy rapper (really!) Mickey Avalon and current UFC Lightweight Champion BJ Penn. Something for everyone.
