Series explores making the cut for the elite tour

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 29 November, 2014 - Part 2 of the first episode of the Red Bull series “Qualifying” has launched, and this time it's centered on the madness that is the US Open of Surfing.

Ask a groupie, ask a fan, or just ask an athlete — and they’ll all tell you that there isn’t any event like the US Open of Surfing. Held annually in Huntington Beach, the Open is a bona fide circus. It attracts record-shattering crowds year after year, all in a place that isn’t quite as picturesque as Fiji.

With challenging conditions in the water — and more than madness on land — Evan Geiselman, Damien Hobgood, Pat Gudauskas, Nathan Hedge and Ezekiel Lau all try to use the US Open to get them one step closer to achieving their goal of a berth on the 2015 WCT. Is it dramatic? Sure. So watch it all unfold in the newest episode of Qualifying.
