The eighth stop on the Men’s Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour 2017.
The only tour stop on the U.S. mainland, the Hurley Pro at Trestles is a complete 180 degree turn from the Pacific paradise and blue tubes of Tahiti.
Lower Trestles, site of the Hurley Pro, is considered to be one of the highest performance waves in North America. It’s full tilt boogie when the WSL comes to town. An A-frame peak breaking over a cobblestone point, the right is a long, lined up wave that invites the surfer to test their imagination. The left is a more vertical wall, ideal for powerful blasts off the top.
“Lowers,” as it’s usually referred, is located in San Clemente, a California original surf town. There are over a dozen surf shops in the city limits and more taco stands than you can shake a bar of wax at. It’s the finest Orange County has to offer.
