SURFING MAGAZINE: Behind the SCENE at the US Open of Surfing

"Straight up, the Hurley US Open of Surfing had the highest production value of any surf event ever executed. It was Pay-Per-View quality for free, on demand, all week long. We asked Hurley Intern Phil Bannon, who pulled 18-hour days at the beach as part of the event’s media team, to detail his experience in the HB trenches." - Surfing Magazine

"That's my team and that's my computer! Working our asses off for 6 months straight to elevate the US Open of Surfing. We didn't sleep for 3 weeks straight during the event. On the beach from 5am to 10pm day after day to bring you the best of the best." - Patrick Gorman
