US OPEN OF SURFING & BEACH GAMES

JULY 28 - AUGUST 5, 2012 at Huntington Beach Pier

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF.--One of the most fun aspects of the annual US Open of Surfing & Beach Games in Huntington Beach is the structure that's built with metal stands. Geometric structures and designs create a techno environment, softened with blue see-through panels, colorful flags waving in the beach wind, and the wooden board walk thrown down for easier walking in the sand during this event where up to 500,000 people attend and the sand begins to fill the sky with clouds of dust.

The picture above shows the event being set up, which is why it isn't crowded like in other pictures where the beach is packed.

IF you go: The top visited days are the final four days of the event that culminate in Saturday and Sunday massive crowds not long after 10 a.m. For best parking, get there around 8:30 a.m.

What to take: Take sunblock, cell phone to contact friend lest you loose them, and a little money to buy some food & drink nearby.
