The U.S. Open of Surfing -- held annually in Surf City USA, aka Huntington Beach, Calif. -- is mostly about surfing, skating and BMX, but the free concerts on Thursday and Friday draw some big crowds as well. Music lovers were treated to Matt Costa and Modest Mouse on the final night; they put on a great show that will not be forgotten anytime soon.
