Every year, thousands of people come from all over the world for one week of surfing, a massive vendor village, and good times in Huntington Beach for the Vans US Open of Surfing. Our team at I Love OC Homes has all of the information you need to know about this historical event.

Huntington Beach, otherwise known as "Surf City," is one of the premier surfing breaks in Orange County. The pier is known for having the perfect shape and regularly having waves while the rest of the coast is flat. For this reason, Huntington Beach hosts the Vans US Open — a nine-day surf competition and largest action sports festivals that’s been a tradition since 1959.

This year the US Open will run from Saturday, Jul 27, 2019 – Sunday, Aug 4, 2019, the world's largest surf competition and lifestyle festival. The event includes world-class surfing, skateboarding and BMX competitions, movie premieres, retail and art exhibitions, and product demos and samples from your favorite action sport industry brands, including title sponsor Vans. The best part is, the event is free to attend.

Huntington Beach has a plethora of luxury resorts and affordable hotels you can stay at including the Waterfront Beach Resort, A Hilton Hotel, Kimpton Shorebreak Resort, Paséa Hotel & Spa, and the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa along with popular places to eat and shop. This event attracts nearly 500,000 from all over to watch some of the best surfers in the world duke it out while surfing the pier in North America’s largest action sports event.

Don’t forget to pack sunscreen, water, a camera, appropriate footwear, and sunglasses each day of the event. For more information on local happenings, OC hotspots, and all things real estate. Follow I Love OC Homes on Instagram and Facebook.
