Lower Trestles, California; - Clean four-to-six foot (2 metre) waves pumped through the lineup at Lower Trestles today with the greatest assemblage of surfing talent in history unloading a barrage of high-fi performances as the Hurley Pro at Trestles completed Rounds 3 and 4.
The Hurley Pro at Trestles is the first event in history to activate the new 36-man competitive format, including the non-elimination three-man Round 4, and today’s experience proved a resounding success.
Owen Wright (AUS), 20, 2010 ASP Dream Tour rookie and current ASP World No. 10, scored one of the greatest comebacks in ASP history today, vaulting past former nine-time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater (USA), 38, and C.J. Hobgood (USA), 31, in the last three minutes of their Round 4 bout.
