US Open Of Surfing Hits Huntington Beach
So I am finally caught up with all Kait Emerson orders and taking a brief hiatus to spend some quality time this summer with the Kids and to finish up on the new designs for fall. I hope to open the Etsy Shop back up in a few weeks. I have lots of adorable pieces to introduce. I know your just going to love them... SO hold tight & stay tuned for KED updates.. BTW Follow us on Twitter to see what were up to everyday.
Today we had some fun.. at the US Open of Surfing here in Huntington Beach..
Every year in late July I look forward to hitting the beach to watch Pro-Surfers from near and far compete to win the Champion title of the US Open of Surfing. Today, the kids & I hit the beach early before the thousands of people flock to the beach to watch. This weekend the amount of visitors the city will have will be well over 100,000. For the last 8 years we lived in the heart of the Dwtn HB area; walking distance to the action. This made going to the event a whole lot more convenient & less stressful. No parking issues to deal with and close enough to take the kids home quickly if need be. Today however, Driving the 10 min worked out just fine.
In addition, to all the surf action there is also the Festival area which was changed up a bit this year. You will find lots of vendors marketing there product, contests, concerts spotlighting Surfers who are also Musicians and Fashion shows showcasing local Fashion designers who attend the Local HS and Much..Much..More..
