USBA Sport Chalet US Open 2011

The USBA Sport Chalet US Open was held today on the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier. The conditions weren't the best - two to four foot waves and onshore winds - but the competitors made the most of it.

Dubb won both the Men's Pro comp and the DK comp, while Chiaki Okuyama from Japan won the Women's Pro comp. Apparently, it was Chiaki's first comp win ever, and she was stoked!

While I went to the comp to see the pros surf, I walked away really impressed by the amateurs. There's a lot of up-and-coming talent, especially from Hawaii.


Trevor Kam was killing it yesterday. Unfortunately, he didn't get through his heat today.
