The competition takes place at the Huntington Beach Pier, which is open to the divisions of Pro juniors, Pro men and also the Pro women.

 

This is a critical event for the women, as it is event number six of eight of the ASP Women’s World Championship Tour.

 

The US Open will also contribute to the women’s re-qualification for the WCT in 2014.

 

The male Pro Juniors have begun competition in their division, with Conner Coffin posting a two-wave total of 14.33 in heat one of round one.

 

Cooper Chapman produced the highest score for the first day of competition, wrapping up his heat with a combined two-wave total of 16.43.
