2016 Vans US Open of Surfing Huntington Beach CA

Professional Surfing

Once upon a time, Blonds and/or Hawaiian’s signified surfing.   The times have changed and it’s a dynamic global assortment of surfers.

The field consists of Hawaiians, Australians, Spanish, Japanese, Californians, Puerto Rican’s, South Africans, and many more lovable cultures.

Brazilians crushing style is a crowd pleaser.   The fierce and powerful surfers tore up the surf on Huntington Beach South Side this week.

Each time a surfer navigated another mind blowing smooth landing  the crowd watched for the fist of joy or glowing surfer smile.

The crowd loves the Air time, rotations, and quietly holds their breadth praying he lands it.   And he does.  Sometimes hidden in the white wash for a few seconds.
