US Open of Surfing: Vans Engages Action Sports Fans With Music, Art and Family-Friendly Experiences

The annual Vans US Open of Surfing, a massive, free-to-the-public action sports festival, features world-class surfing, skateboarding and BMX biking competitions in Huntington Beach, CA, but it’s also home to an array of sponsor activations. At this year’s event, held July 28 to Aug. 5, more than 20 brands pitched tents and erected beach builds on the sand, which, we learned, is prime real estate for marketers seeking to reach the laid back, family-oriented and eco-conscious consumers the event attracts.
