2011 US Open of Surfing: Day Five

2011 US Open of Surfing: Day Five

The second day of the Men's draw of the U.S. Open of Surfing at the Huntington Beach pier saw upsets aplenty. Both Joel Parkinson (the No. 1 surfer on the ASP World Tour) and Rob Machado were eliminated in the same heat, and then the local boy, the two-time defending champ, Brett Simpson suffered a similar fate. The surfing was just that good, even though the waves were that bad. See more of our US Open of Surfing coverage here.
