The 2009 Hurley Walk the Walk Finals proved that some high schools do more than just talk the talk when it comes to original fashion and all-encompassing killer steeze. Hurley’s Walk the Walk is a high-energy, “Project Runway” meets “Battle of the Bands” event that puts high schools around the country head to head. The challenge: to create Hurley fashion showcase that combines creativity and their unique vision to showcase Hurley fashion. The grand prize: $10,000 for their school’s art program and bragging rights for the year.
Held for the first time on the scorching sands of the Huntington Beach US Open of Surfing, the pressure of 100,000 surf fans added an intense element to the grand finale.
