Hurley Pro Lower Trestles 9-19-09

21 09 2009

Ok so, my friend calls and says he has VIP access to the Hurley Pro event at Lower Trestles this weekend. Grab camera bag and go. For those that don’t know, the event brings some of the world’s best surfers to one of the best waves in Southern California. Lower Trestles is a high performance wave perfect for state of the art surfing. Australian, Mick Fanning beat Californian, Dane Reynolds, in the finals to claim victory and take home a check for the biggest prize purse in surfing history, $105 K. Kelly Slater ripped lowers as usual, but couldn’t find the waves in his semi-final heat to advance to the finals.

and the winner is... Mick Fanning!
