Quiksilver Waterman’s Festival Exclusive Gallery

Our shoulders ache, our sunburns burn and Monday feels extra slow after yesterday at the Quiksilver Waterman’s Festival. Jamie Mitchell’s brainchild went off yesterday in a serious way, with top racers from around the world descending on Huntington Beach for some of the most exciting SUP, prone and swim racing we’ve ever seen. Fans filled the beach to watch Mitchell’s “survivor” format in all the disciplines, which featured back-to-back-to-back heats of in-and-out laps through the surf. It was a demanding day for everyone involved but not a soul left disappointed in the action. Check out the photos above for a recap of one very exciting Sunday.
