The Vans U.S. Open of Surfing is about to swell to a fever pitch in the coming days at the Huntington Beach Pier.

The stretch drive of the nine days of action sports, including the world’s largest surfing competition, and BMX and skateboarding contests, begins Thursday, continues Friday and Saturday and ends with women’s and men’s surfing finals on Sunday.
