It may seem a little gimmicky but there really is just something about standing on the beach at Huntington during the US Open of Surfing and watching someone breeze out of a barrel or finner and then surf through the pier. Even better when they come back through for a shorebreak hit in front of the crowd (so milky, but the people love!). Vans, whose ownership of the event is perfectly hand-in-glove, gift us this clip today that swings the pier play under a focus lens. Thank you, thank you.

Oh, and day one just wrapped. Here’s what went down:
