LifeProof Announces Official Sponsorship of Vans U.S. Open of Surfing

SAN DIEGO, July 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Huntington Beach once again welcomes crowds, surf, BMX and skate competitors to its shores for the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing July 29 through August 6. LifeProof, a world leader in drop proof, dirt proof and waterproof technology, announces its return as an official sponsor.

LifeProof athletes Lizzie Armanto (skate), Tom Schaar (skate) and Gary Young (BMX), fresh off of appearances at X Games Minneapolis, are among the stars scheduled to compete throughout the event.

The LifeProof athlete team brings a wealth of experience and accomplishments to the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing. Armanto will be competing in Vans Park Series. She won the 2013 and 2014 Van Doren Invitationals and went pro this year with her own board from Birdhouse. She also became the first woman ever to grace the cover of Transworld Skateboarding.

Schaar will compete in the Vans Park Series. He is a seven-time X Games medalist, including silver in Skateboard Big Air and Skateboard Park from X Games Minneapolis earlier in July.

Young will compete in the Vans BMX Pro Cup Series at the Vans Pro Park course. His consistent performance and strong riding skills have earned him a top 10 ranking in every VPC Global Qualifier stop and he won the Van Doren Invitational in 2014.

LifeProof inspires action sports fans to live life to the fullest with its drop proof, dirt proof, waterproof and snow proof cases and AQUAPHONICS Bluetooth speakers. These fully protective cases and mobile speakers are designed to handle the rigors of an epic active lifestyle.

LifeProof will be onsite throughout the event with a consumer booth right by the action, with athlete autograph sessions and photo opportunities available throughout the weekend.
