U.S. Open of Surfing Hits Jack’s Surfboards in Huntington Beach

infoheader

The Nike U.S. Open of Surfing—the annual concert and massive beach party with a surf comp on the side—is descending on Huntington Beach this week. There’ll be concerts, skate comps, and thousands and thousands of beachgoers, but the real show is still in the water. Here are a few of the things we here at Jack’s Surfboards are looking forward to.

Watching Jack’s Team Riders

We’re used to seeing John John Florence charging at Pipe and South Pacific reefs, but a John John sighting at Huntington Beach is rare indeed. John’s been holding his own on the ASP World Tour this year, and no one would be surprised if he won the U.S. Open.

Team riders Pat and Tanner Gudauskas will also be in the pro men’s mix. They’re SoCal natives and no strangers to Huntington, and we’re hoping their local knowledge and top-notch air abilities will see them deep into the contest. Pat’s been known to throw the occasional rodeo flip, and Tanner rips on waves of any size. Whatever happens, these guys put on a show whenever they’re in the water and are always worth watching.

Junior Men’s Surf Comp

The Pro Men’s events tend to get all the attention, but the Junior Men’s division is where you can see future world champs cut their teeth. So don’t be surprised to see surfing on par—and sometimes even better—than the Pro Men’s division. We’ll be cheering on Jack’s Team riders Jeremy Carter, Derek Peters, and Bobby Okvist. These kids are good, and hungry, and definitely worth watching.

The Best Pros on Everyday Waves

The official forecast for the event predicts contestable waves for the start of the event, with a south swell filling in toward the end of the week. “Contestable” at Huntington Beach looks very different from “contestable” at Cloudbreak. Expect waist-to-chest high with decent conditions for most of the event. You’re probably not going to see ten-second barrels—in fact, we’ll guarantee it—but odds are you’ll see some big airs and deep turns. It’s cool watching the world’s best on the sort of waves most of us spend our time on—you see just how good those guys are when they pull something you didn’t think could be done on three-foot beachbreak.

The Nike U.S. Open of Surfing kicks off on Saturday, July 28, and will wrap up on Sunday, August 5. Full event schedule and webcast are at usopenofsurfing.com.

Jack’s Team Rider Pat Gudauskas prepares to defend his title at the 2012 Mr. Price Pro Ballito.

Pat Gudauskas

Last year the entire world’s (outside of South Africa) eyes were opened to the perfection of Willard’s beach laying just off the shore of Ballito along the KwaZulu Natal North Coast (or Dolphin Coast) in South Africa. Perfection. A dream right hander. Fast, hollow and powerful. Last year was a contest organizers, surfers and spectators dream; beautiful barrels flawlessly ridden by some of the top surfers on the planet, fighting each other for points, money and pride. In the end Jack’s team rider Patrick Gudauskas ruled the tube and claimed the top of the podium (and $40,000) as his own.

But that was last year, the secrets out now. Everyone knows how good the wave is and getting it with only a couple other guys combined with a chance to win $40,000 at this ASP Prime Event has attracted many of the world’s best surfers. But Pat is always up for a challenge and is definitely one of the favorites heading into this week’s contest. His skills riding the barrel combined with the confidence coming from last year’s victory put his name near the top of the short list of possible winners for the 2012 contest. The other Jack’s Surfboards team rider joining Pat Gudauskas in Ballito is Pat’s brother Tanner Gudauskas. The Gudauskas brothers should cause havoc in their respective draws and are a major threat in every heat they are involved in.

The 2012 Mr. Price Pro Ballito will be ran from July 2 through July 8 in Ballito South Africa. The forecast looks small starting off the contest waiting period but hopefully will pick up through the week at the main contest location of Willard’s Beach. Willard’s likes a southwest swell and a low tide and we can only hope it turns on like it did last year as the beach came to life delivering barrel after barrel after barrel. The contest can be watched live at www.mrpricepro.com. Make sure you watch as the action should be hot. Check back here for more information and event wrap ups following the contest. Let’s go Pat! Back to back (plus $40,000 is nice but $80,000 is even nicer).
