Kicking off the exciting programming for the largest action sports festival in the world, the Vans US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, California,
the celebrated Vans Rebel Jam BMX street competition will debut for the first time on American soil July 27-28.
Slated for an international roster of BMX medalists and style experts, the Rebel Jam will feature Best Trick contests, creativity awards,
a Bunny Hop and High Air comp, and contest honors inclusive of men and women in all award categories.
This year’s custom-designed obstacles will be presented by respected BMX brand, Cult.
With nearly fifteen years of consecutive BMX competition history in tow, Vans is thrilled to bring the prolific Rebel Jam contest to the beach to showcase a world-class field of talented BMX street riders.
Unlike any other traditional contest format, the Vans Rebel Jam philosophy supports fun, creativity and innovation, integrating custom-designed obstacles and tailored course elements inspired by the sport’s storied history and the unique style and approach of each BMX specialty, from Vert and Park, to Street style riding.
Created to inspire the most inventive and original street riding you’ve ever seen, the Vans Rebel Jam competition will be open to the public for viewing on July 27-28 in Huntington Beach, and will be broadcast via live webcast on July 28 at www.vansusopenofsurfing.com
