The 2014 U.S. Open of Surfing (July 26-Aug. 3) will hold the distinction of being an ASP Women's World Tour event, while for the men it remains an important stop on the qualifying series. Defending world champ Carissa Moore (left) is also the defending Open champ, but there's no shortage of women looking to knock her off the podium, like 2009 Open champ and last year's runner-up, Courtney Conlogue, right.
