Fans will see their favorite athletes compete in surf and skateboarding’s biggest stadium.
The 2012 Nike US Open of Surfing kicks off July 28 in Huntington Beach for what has become one of the most anticipated surf, music and lifestyle events of the year. The event will run through August 5. Fans will see all of their favorite athletes battle it out again this year in surf and skateboarding’s biggest stadium spaces on both water and sand.
Anchored by the world’s largest professional surfing competition, the US Open is a pivotal point on the ASP World Tour for both the men and women. For the men, a win at the US Open – a North America ASP Men’s Prime event - will earn them valuable points toward a coveted Top 32 world ranking. And for the women, the US Open marks the final stop on the 2012 ASP World Title Tour.
Nike will also bring the premiere Damn Am contest series to the event. Damn Am HB will be the first street skateboarding contest to hit the US Open in years and will host the world’s most talented amateur skaters, who will all be vying for a spot at the prestigious Tampa Am skate contest.
The newest addition to amateur skateboarding’s premiere contest series, the Damn Am HB features top amateur skateboarders from around the world like Belgium’s Youness Amrani and California’s Julian Davidson who will battle it out for premium prizes and qualification for the Tampa AM contest in December. Skaters will compete on a modern concrete course designed by California Skateparks and the Nike Skateboarding team. The competition days for Damn Am are Fri (Aug 3) and Sat (Aug 4).
Damn Am Schedule:
Qualifying Rounds – Friday, August 3 and Sat, Aug 4
Finals – Saturday, August 4
In addition to the surfing and skateboarding action, TV on the Radio, Grouplove and Best Coast take over the music stage with three nights of music in front of hundreds of thousands of fans. This year's musical line-up melds the laid back surf-vibe of rockers Best Coast with the post-punk electronic rock sound of TV on the Radio and the alternative stylings of Grouplove. The series will also include sets by emerging artists White Arrows and Hindu Pirates. Known as the world's largest youth culture and action sports festival, the Nike US Open of Surfing will feature daily concerts Wednesday through Friday, August 1-3, at the conclusion of the surfing competition.
Wednesday, August 1 - Best Coast / Walk the Moon
Thursday, August 2 - Grouplove / White Arrows / Hindu Pirates
