Walk the Walk

Yesterday, I was in Huntington Beach for the US Open Surfing contest and was one of the judges for Hurley’s Walk the Walk.

Walk the Walk is an awesome project that challenges high schools around the nation to design and interpret a line of Hurley clothing and produce a fashion show/performance of their creations. The winning school gets 25k donated to their Art and Music programs. The top 5 schools competed yesterday from Grossmont High School (California), Peterborough Collegiate & Vocational School (Ontario, Canada), Toms River East (New Jersey), Kellam (Virginia) and Corona del Mar High School (California).

I didn’t really have any idea what I was in for and I was completely blown away as the first school came out to perform. It was on a big stage that had a long cat walk with a huge crowd watching. There was great music compilations, girls doing flips, guys dancing on graffiti painted trash cans and awesome clothing designs. I had goose bumps and almost felt emotional, for some reason, just seeing the amazing energy and creativity of such talented young people! I definitely do not remember having that kind of confidence or grasp of creating something that major in high school so I was really inspired!

I also met two of the best-looking people there, Vanessa Hudgens and pro surfer Rob Machado.

Much love,
