US Open of Surfing What's the closest thing to watching the world's best surfers compete in a full-on stadium atmosphere? Look no further than Huntington Beach in late July, when more than 500,000 people will find their way to Surf City USA®, post up in the sand and cheer on their heroes at the pier. It's been that way for more than 50 years, starting with the US Championships in 1959 and evolving to what it is today, the Nike US Open of Surfing.
