As usual, there are some killer events hitting SoCal this summer. So check out the calendar, click on some links, get out of the AC and go…
Action Sports Arena at Orange County Fair
When: July 12 – August 11, 2013
Where: Costa Mesa Fairgrounds
One of the best things about the OC fair is their Action Sports Arena. Unfortunately this year there's a lack of action sports actually going on there. But if you like monster trucks, dodgeball and extreme rodeo, then pile on in. Otherwise it's just the normal stuff that makes the fair great.
Vans US Open of Surfing
When: July 20 – July 28, 2013
Where: Huntington Beach, CA
Besides the world-class ASP surfing competition, Vans is introducing the Van Doren Invitational featuring the best in skate and BMX. Local O.C. athletes include Brett Simpson, Kolohe Andino, the Gudauskas brothers, Courtney Conlogue, Omar Hassan, Pat Casey and more. Plus with plenty of merchandise, food, music, and games make this the premier summer event in Orange County.
X Games Los Angeles
When: August 1 – 4, 2013
Where: L.A Live, STAPLES Center and Irwindale Event Center
Yes, kids this is the last year X Games will be in Southern California… well, they won't be here next year anyway, which is a shame because X Games has become a great summer SoCal tradition. STAPLES Center will host four nights of Moto X competition, while Street League Skateboarding will make its debut at the L.A. LIVE Event Deck where BMX Street, Women’s Skateboard Street and Skateboard Vert will also be held. Irwindale Event Center will showcase the inaugural GYMKHANA GRID competition along with Ford RallyCross, America’s Navy Skateboard Big Air and GoPro BMX Big Air.
