    The Vans U.S. Open of Surfing takes no prisoners. The folks on the beach are susceptible to overcrowding and energy drink overdose. The judges have to quantify the value of a well-executed “Huntington Hop” between the flurry of carbon-copy air reverses. The surfers cope with so-so wave conditions, the dangers that come with maneuvering around the unforgiving barnacle-covered pilings of the pier, their fellow surfer, star-struck fans and surviving nine days of competition amongst more than 100 of their peers. It’s taxing. Which makes surviving and excelling all that more impressive. Kolohe Andino will be the first person to tell you that his results hasn’t been what he’d hoped they would be this year. But a runner-up finish at the U.S. Open in front of 50,000 spectators on the beach, it’s the kind of result that can turn a season around.

    Heat strategies tend to differ from one surfer to the next. Some guys prefer to sit patiently and wait for the best possible waves. Others prefer a quick start to get points on the board. Conner Coffin is typically the former. His powerful approach, which he’s developed over countless hours on the long, fast walls at Rincon in Santa Barbara, Calif., caters best to a clean, open face. His air game isn’t on par with most of the talent of his generation, but he’s easily in the one-percentile when it comes to teenage power surfers.

    Keramas lived up to its reputation on Day 7 of the Oakley Pro Junior. At first light, the lineup was packed with anxious freesurfers hoping to get a few bombing barrels before the comp started up. Overhead and reeling down the reef, it was the wave that competitors hoped they’d encounter when coming to Bali.
