Do you need one more reason to call Huntington Beach "Surf City USA"?  How about the largest professional surfing competition in the world - The Vans US Open of Surfing! 

Every year, Huntington Beach plays host to this week-long event that brings together top surfers from around the world, as well as pros in skateboarding, BMX biking and a series of live concerts (including acts such as MGMT, Hot Hot Heat, The Faint, Modest Mouse and Weezer.)
