WHERES Kelly Slater?.. kinda like wheres Waldo. This picture is the poor guy getting swarmed by fans after his heat on Saturday Aug. 7th.
So yeah I guess as you can tell from the picture, last Saturday I decided to go to my first US Open of Surfing in good ole HB.. I was able to see Kelly Slater surf, I loved my view from the pier.. NICE..
Literally ran into 2 different people I knew and didn't expect to see at 2 different times.
Then I met up with some friends. Watched the woman's surf, Jr. woman's finals & the women's finals.
Got a VIP pass,(perks of joining a cool surf club and knowing the right people) that was fun.
I forgot to mention I also brought along my 13 year old daughter and 3 of her closest friends.. They loved the experience.
I enjoyed the Expressions Session with my fav Rob Machado, Kelly Slater, and Mick Fanning along with a few other pros.
I also was amazed by the surfers of Life Rolls On... such an amazing organization for some extraordinary surfers.
Wanted to see Weezer..but just got way too crowded.
I don't know if it is because I am getting older..But when it started getting too crowded.. I just was not enjoying myself anymore.
So I left and went home.
BUT.. I did enjoy the experience and am Happy I went! Will I go again next year..maybe?
Congrats to US OPEN CHAMPS Brett Simpson and Carissa Moore!
