The US Open of Surfing doesn’t just mean no parking, terrible traffic, underage drinking and drawing, the Huntington Hop, overcrowded lineups, MMA flexing and heavily policed streets. It also means premiering new surf movies. And although it may not be the same grandiose events that used to take place in front of the Shorebreak Hotel when they closed down 5th street with a blow up screen and a crowd of groms stretching all the way to PCH. It’s still a great chance to see what some of our favorites have been up to the last 6 months outside of a jersey. We’re premiering our new short Everything’s Wrong but in the Right Place on Wednesday the 27th at Don The Beachcomber. We’re also excited to check out Metal Neck 2 on Thursday and the Jack Freestone piece by Surfing Magazine on Saturday the 30th.
The US Open of Surfing is coming regardless, might as well make the most of it.
Here’s a little look back at the movie we premiered on 5th street in 2012, Dear Suburbia.
