The US Open is the first of four Challenger Series events this year, where 10,000 qualification points are available for whoever tops the podium. The 96-man and 64-woman fields are made up of Championship Tour surfers, as well as competitors drawn from the seven WSL Regional Qualifying Series around the world. 

On the men’s side of the draw, some of this year’s top seeds from the CT include Conner Coffin, who just finished fourth in the inaugural Rip Curl WSL Finals, along with Griffin Colapinto and Huntington local and two-time U.S. Open winner Kanoa Igarashi. 

On the women’s side, CT surfers Caroline Marks, Isabella Nichols, Keely Andrew, BrisaHennessy, hometown favorite and former Open winner CourtneyConlogue and defending 2019 event winner Sage Erickson are all set to attend. 

The top-12 men and top-6 from the Women’s side will advance to the Championship Tour in 2022. Championship Tour surfers can compete on the Challenger Series regardless of where they sit on the CT rankings, which means the draw for both men and women is stacked with talent.
