U.S. SUP Surf Championships
Tuesday, June 19th, 2012
Huntington Beach played host all week to the inaugural U.S. Surfing Championships.
This event marked the first time ever that SUP was added to the list as a division. Although SUP was added last minute, the event managed to draw a few big names to come support and compete. Chuck Patterson, Candice Appleby, Noah Yapp, Dave Boehne, Anthony Vela and HB local Daniel Hughes all showed up.
Honolua's Anthony Vela managed a 3rd Place finish in the final with some impressive SUP surfing, dropping down from 2nd in the dying seconds of the heat.
