Day three of the 2014 Vans US Open of Surfing hosted Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Prime competition, completing heats 1-18 in peaky one-to-three foot waves at Huntington Beach Pier.

Monday’s competition saw several standout performances from World Championship Tour (WCT) surfers, while a field of up-and-comers delivered big upsets.

The Vans US Open of Surfing is the third of eight ASP Prime rated Qualification Series (QS) events on the 2014 calendar, offering crucial points towards surfer’s rankings.

Mitch Crews (Gold Coast), currently ranked 25th on the ASP World Championship Tour is seeking precious ASP QS ranking points at the PRIME rated Vans US Open of Surfing. Crews started the season strong with a 9th place at his home event on the Gold Coast, but after two last place finishes in a row on the WCT, he’s looking to find some form at Huntington Beach.

The Vans US Open of Surfing runs from July 26 through August 3, 2014 and is webcast LIVE via www.usopenofsurfing.com and www.aspworldtour.com
