Lower Trestles: perfect ramps, impossible aerials

The Top 34 surfers on the ASP World Championship Tour are taking the train down to Lower Trestles, as the Hurley Pro 2013 runs from September 15th, in California.

Wildcards Mitch Crews and Dane Reynolds are pumped and eager to battle for the title on offer at San Onofre State Beach.

Lower Trestles is California's premier point/reef break and a world-class showcase for high-performance surfing. It is also one of the favorite spots for the pro surfers on Dream Tour. Kelly Slater will be aiming at a fourth title.

"I'm continually blown away by what the world's best surfers can do at this wave," says Pat O'Connell Hurley Pro contest director.

"We've truly reached a level where these guys can pull off what they dream up, and Lowers is the perfect venue to watch them realize these dreams".

The Hurley Pro is also offering five spots in an Expression Session featuring Rob Machado and an empty Lowers lineup between the dates of September 15th-21st.

The spots will be decided through an online bidding process, beginning August 26, with the nod going to the five highest bidders. All proceeds from the online auction will go to the San Onofre Foundation, caretaker of the San Onofre/Trestles region. 

San Onofre State Beach is the fifth most visited State Park in California, providing visitors with a place for inspiration and the renewal of spirit with its breath-taking scenery and natural features.

The Surf Beach and Trestles areas of San Onofre State Beach are world renowned and historical surfing beaches, offering some of the most consistent surf on the west coast.
