The Lowers Pro will return to Trestles, California, in 2015, after a two-year hiatus. The 2015 Oakley Lowers Pro will deliver 10,000 World Surf League (WSL) Men's Qualifying Series (QS) points rankings.

From April 28th to May 2nd, the best surfers in the world will have the opportunity to surf one of the jewels of California. Lower Trestles is back in the competitive circus with a quarter of a million dollar prize purse on the line.

"Lowers is a perfect canvas for innovative, high-performance surfing, which makes for an ideal competitive venue. And while it can be a picturesque wave, it's a difficult one to master. It's definitely a place that differentiates the good from the great," explains Cuan Petersen, marketing director at Oakley.

The high-performance wave of San Clemente offers idyllic Southern California surfing conditions. Stars such as Tom Curren, Christian Fletcher, Kelly Slater, Rob Machado and Andy Irons have claimed trophies at Lower Trestles.

The QS Armada is once again about to push the boundaries of progressive surfing, with an arsenal of aerial tricks, powerful carves and committed bottom-turns where only Perfect 10s are the limit.
