Surf Champs

We finally made it to the US Open of Surfing, and it definitely didn't disappoint!
The event is held in Huntington Beach -- also known as Surf City -- every summer at the end of July/beginning of August. On the final Saturday of the event, we braved the crowd of 100,000 to catch some of the world's best surfers tear up the waves. It's unreal what those surfers can do with a tiny board and water! We found a relatively uncrowded spot near the water and played in between all the action. And when something awesome was happening, we got to see everything twice thanks to the instant replay on big screens along the pier.

After the competition was over, the crowds began to disperse a bit and we enjoyed a gorgeous afternoon at the beach. The weather was perfect and the water was even warm! Oh, it was so lovely. We were all in heaven! Jakey likes to take off running into the water and doesn't mind being knocked over by waves -- I'm convinced that he would walk straight into the ocean and take off swimming if we let him. That baby love, love, loves the beach. He excitedly runs around, plays with the sand, finds seashells, splashes in the water, and loves it when we jump waves with him. Our beach-loving selves can't get enough of it.


  1. Wow! I didn't know these events existed in Cali !! How fun!! And I love the photos of your little guy squatting in the waves, his facial expression is priceless!

  2. I love the last picture of Jake in the water with his mouth open wide in excitement. Enjoy the beach while you can. You will be land locked soon enough. =)

  3. Super cool photos! Those surfers are awesome! The beach looks beautiful and your family looks beautiful on it!

  4. Jake is too cute, looks like a fun day

  5. Looks like you and your family had a great time! I have to admit, I've lived in Huntington my whole life and really try to get out of town when the US Open rolls around. It takes over our city and there are way, way too many people! Haha. It would probably be a lot more fun if I didn't live in the city. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
