Lower Trestles is the destination for high performance surfing in Southern California. Tagging along with Daniel Thomson on September 13, 2011, his new board designs were clearly displayed flying down the line. After Taylor Knox, Tiago Pirez, Damien Hobgood, Ben Bourgeois and company showed up to the sight of roadies setting up scaffolding for the up and coming Hurley Pro, it became an all out hack off!
As you'll hear on the webcast all week, the announcers dissect the boards that each surfer is riding, many of which are specific for the particular wave being surfed. And after watching these guys shred on their various shapes, it was clear that they were all riding their finely tuned 'Trestles Specials'.
