Hurley Pro Rounds 3 & 4 finish in pumping Lowers.

Surf News, 19 September, 2012 :  The Hurley Pro at Trestles, Stop No. 6 of 10 on the ASP World Championship Tour (WCT), returned to the cobblestone pointbreak of Lower Trestles for the third day of competition, witnessing the world’s best surfers tear in to building four-to-six foot faces & glassy waves.

Joel Parkinson (AUS), 31, current No. 2 on the ASP WCT rankings, opened his Round 3 campaign by unloading the highest single-wave score of the Hurley Pro at Trestles of 9.93 out of 10. The stylish Australian locked into a lengthy righthand wall, combining a seamless array of tail-drifting turns and carves for the near-perfect ride and went on to find a backup score to eliminate California Veteran Taylor Knox (USA), 41.

   

Day 3 is on for Round 3...plus DAY 2 highlights - Hurley Pro - 2012

Brett Simpson put in a commanding performance against Kieren Perrow, winning the heat by three points, the second largest margin of round two.

What kind of day was it at Lowers? Of the 12 heats surfed in round two of the Hurley Pro, six were decided by less than half a point, and there wasn't one blowout.

If you were a conspiracy theorist, you could question why local boys Pat Gudauskas and Kolohe Andino weren't still in the contest.

But no theorizing needed. Jeremy Flores may have been overscored a touch on his 9.43, and Gudauskas perhaps underscored given the commitment with which he surfed his two high-scoring rides. But not being able to catch a break -- besides stomping what Kelly Slater called the drop of the year at Cloudbreak -- seems to be a common theme for Gudauskas this season. He has had very few things go his way, which is a bummer given how much passion he puts into it.

"In the end it's surfing, and what are you going to do? The sun's still shining," noted patriarch of the Gudauskas clan, Tom. And you wonder where the boys beaming optimism comes from?

   

Day 2 is ON plus catch day details for the Hurley Pro Trestles: World’s best shine in Round 1

Catching up with Reef McIntosh

 

With summer ending, it won't be long until those first NPAC swells start filtering down to Hawaii. What better time to check out one of the North Shore's hardest charging surfers, Reef McIntosh.

Some job titles are very specific. An employer expects one thing of you. For Reef McIntosh, that job is to go ride Pipeline ...Well, that and manage the Quiksilver house directly in front of Pipeline.

   

The history of the famous surfing shaka sign

The Shaka sign is the famous surfers' hand gesture. The story of the popular sign goes back to the roots of Hawaiian culture.

When the surf culture grew and spread through California and America, during the sunny 1960's, a new body gesture was gaining enthusiasts. Surfers from Hawaii started saluting fellow riders and friends with an original hand sign.
