Tomorrow is going to start the Vans US Open Of Surfing at Huntington Beach, one of the eight Prime Events of the ASP World Tour. There are only eight Prime Events throughout the year, from Australia to Hawaii, passing South Africa, Brazil and even Portugal (Sao Miguel, Azores and Praia de Carcavelos, Cascais).
In this event will be competing the World's best surfers, like Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds, Nat Young, Josh Kerr and C. J. Hobgood. The half Portuguese half German, Marlon Lipke is also going to compete with the Portuguese flag in his back, so keep your eyes on the screen and support this awesome surfer.
The Prime Events of the ASP World Tour are very important, as winning one of these events is equivalent to have a third place in one of the ASP World Tour main events (6500 points for the ASP World Ranking).
Let me show you two videos of last year's US Open of Surfing, won by Julian Wilson and Lakey Peterson:
