Cali Muñoz didn’t make it at US Open Surfing

August 17, 2017

The US Open Surfing in Huntington, California, was not exactly what Cali Muñoz had hoped for. Unfortunately, the Jacó surf champion was not able to make the finals.

Sage Erickson (USA) and Kanoa Igarashi (USA) claimed victory today at the Vans US Open of Surfing  in two-to-four foot (0.5 – 1 metre) waves on the Southside of the Huntington Beach Pier. A capacity crowd witnessed Erickson clinch the win at Stop No. 6 of 10 on the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT) and Igarashi take out the Men’s Qualifying Series (QS) 10,000 event.

A year full of surprises continues at both the CT and QS levels with a big performance from Munoz, whose dream run ended in the Semifinals and catapults him into No. 19 on the QS heading into the back half of the year.

The next stop on the 2017 WSL Championship Tour will be the Billabong Pro Tahiti, which will see the world’s best male surfers resume this season’s title race from August 11 – 22, 2017.
