  • Catch up with Vans US Open and Van Doren Invitational

Ok, there's so much going on right now at Huntington Beach that it's hard to keep up. Surf, skate, BMX – it’s all on, and we have some catching up to do.

Let's start with the Vans US Open of Surfing.

The Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational Longboard concluded with Justin Quintal taking out the title.

Meanwhile, Griffin Colapinto and Caroline Marks emerged victorious at the Pro Junior.

In the Men's Surfing, Filipe Toledo is the standout with the highest wave score of 9.67 and the highest heat score of 18.67 after his trademark high air rotations. He's fast overtaking Gabriel Medina as the one to watch over the past year after winning last year's US Open of Surfing, Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast (Australia) this March, the Oakley Lowers Pro (Lower Trestles, San Clemente) in May, and the Oi Rio Pro (Brazil) in May. Kolohe Andino and Kanoa Igarashi are his biggest threats this time. 

Sally Fitzgibbons is safely into the semis and you can check out the action here:

   Nearby, the Van Doren Invitational is well under way. Lizzie Armanto won the women’s skate finals earlier this week and now the men's qualifiers have been decided. The highly anticipated final will feature crowd favorite Curren Caples, whose season has been a successful one thus far. 


Now we look forward to the conclusion of all remaining events this weekend!
