US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, CA has been going on all week. Some of the top 32 got out early, but some of my personal favs are still in it. Here’s my top 4 to win it in no particular order.
3. Kelly Slater … You never know what Jimmy Slade can pull out with minutes remaining.
Don’t count out the Brazilian boys. Pupo, Filipe, Adriano, Medina, and Jesse Mendes are all very capable of going far in the contest. As well the local boy, 2009, 2010 winner Brett Simpo is still going strong. Nathaniel Curran had a great heat yesterday as well against Slates. Can’t count out the Gudang bros too! Oh boy, who’s your pick?
