The surf didn’t cooperate but fickle conditions could do little to take away the joy felt by the winners at this past weekend’s Honda U.S. Open of Surfing presented by O’Neill and Beach Festival at the Huntington Beach Pier. The 10-day event, which concluded Sunday, culminated with C.J. Hobgood of Florida winning the U.S. Open of Men’s title. His win capped a Sunday finals schedule that saw two other winners emerge: Tonino Benson of Hawaii edged out Chris Waring of Seal Beach to win the Lost Pro Junior title, and Colin McPhillips of San Clemente led from start to finish to take the U.S. of Longboarding trophy.

A top female professional surfer wants Huntington Beach surf clothing company Roxy to stop using sexy images of its sponsored female surfers and instead focus on their athleticism. Three-time world champion surfer Cori Schumacher visited Roxy's offices Thursday to deliver more than 20,000 signatures from people who are upset about the company's focus on female surfers' bodies instead of their skills in the water. "We discussed the petition, the comments from the petition and how Roxy has the ability to be truly something different in the surf industry," she said after the meeting.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Hope you’re in good health and all’s well with you. Maybe a surf in the morning could be fun, and some turkey with the family in the afternoon would be nice on this special occasion! Over in Hawaii, the surf finally picked up, 6 to 10-foot-plus for the Reef Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa. Hot 26-year-old local Joel Centeio pulled into a good-size barreling right and received a 9.33 score to take the win and the $20,000 first-place prize. Centeio also takes the lead in the Triple Crown of Surfing series’ overall points race, which some consider as good as a world title.

Courtney Conlogue continues to make things interesting in the race for the title of world's best women's surfer. Conlogue, 19, a Santa Ana native who went to Sage Hill School in Newport Coast, is in fourth place in the Assn. of Surfing Professionals World Tour standings through five events, with two to go. She trails Australian powerhouses Stephanie Gilmore and Sally Fitzgibbons, as well as last year's World Tour champion, Hawaiian Carissa Moore. But Conlogue jumped into the fray when she won the Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic in Australia last month, and more recently placed fifth in the Billabong Rio Pro last week in Brazil.

The Newport Harbor High School surf team - with help from Volcom, Surfside, Arnette, OAM and Vestal - sponsored the 13th annual Newport Surf Classic last weekend at 54th Street in Newport, but it was more than another local surf contest. The two-day event also included a memorial for Zach Morabito, a Newport Harbor surf team member who lost his battle with brain cancer in August. The memorial started out with an "expression session," in which surfers showcased their own tricks and airs without being judged for points.

Over at the Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championship at Piha Beach, New Zealand, last week, in 2- to 4-foot wind-textured surf, the United States team gave its best shot, but came up short. The Australians, who were in second position going into the last day of the competition, rallied to take the gold by winning two of the three divisions. This makes it an incredible five consecutive ISA World Junior titles for the Aussies, who are tough to beat, showing a wealth of up-and-coming talent every year.
