Body Art with Spray Paint at US Open Surfing Huntington Beach



Huntington Beach Pier


Every company under the sun sprayed body art with spray paint cans and stencils on the skin of youngster, teens and adults. From tummies to legs, chests, to breasts, the spray paint came in fluorescent shades and was all over the human population that attended the US Open of Surfing and Beach Games in Huntington Beach.

The water-based paint can be washed off quite easily but was one of the most popular things to do in the many booths and activities at the Transworld Surfing Village. The event lasted a week with the final two days drawing huge crowds, surfing, bmx, fmx bikes, singing, tribal drumming and all kinds of crazy fun.
