The partnership between WSL and IMG for the Vans US Open of Surfing ensures the event is contested by the world’s best surfers in the historic “Surf City,” USA.
“Huntington Beach is home to a tremendous heritage in professional surfing and we’re thrilled that IMG and Vans, whose roots in surfing date back to the US Surfing Championships, are partnering with us to sustain that legacy for years to come,” said Paul Speaker, chief executive officer of the World Surf League. “The Vans US Open is a fantastic forum to showcase professional surfing in Southern California and we’re eager to see the world’s best back in the water this summer.”
Carrying on the tradition of major competitive surfing at Huntington Beach since 1959, the Vans US Open of Surfing has evolved into one of the largest action sports festivals in the country, showcasing some of the world’s best surfing alongside an unparalleled entertainment experience that includes curated retail spaces, world-class BMX competitions, and the return of the Van Doren Village featuring art exhibitions and hands-on creative workshops for attendees.
