The Huntington Beach Pier will soon make some new friends- actually, a few hundred thousand new friends.
2017 Vans US Open of Surfing has already declared the south side of the pier, marking the fifth straight year of the Orange County-based skate company the world's largest action sports festival.
It formally kicks off on Saturday, July 29, and rips through Sunday, August 6.
With a continued focus on its core, the nine-day family-friendly, community sports competition welcomes the world's biggest popular names in surfing, skate, and BMX. More than 300 world-class athletes and over half a million spectators are expected to attend. Alongside the sports action, Van Doren Village will again play host to art exhibitions and hands-on creative workshops, Steve Van Doren will resume his usual post behind the community grill, and Vans Movie Nights return to Pier Amphitheater.
