Gabriel Medina Wins $40,000 At Nike Lowers Pro

Glenn Hall by far the under dog in this comp

Jeremy Flores top turn

Glenn Hall had priority, and Jeremy loses

Tanner Gudauskas on rail

John John barely going down to Glenn in the semi

Yes, we wanted Dane to win or at least be in the final

WCT veteran Adrian “Ace” Buchan taking down local boy Pat Gudauskas

All of San Clemente most likely wanted to see at Pat and Tanner Gudauskas final

Almost standing room only at the Nike Lowers Pro

Smoking Glenn Hall in the final

Would you flex your muscles like this if you were to be carried up the beach after a win (neither would we)

Gabriel with the $40,000 check along with a gold train spike worth $30,000 and Glenn Hall receiving a silver plated spike

Nobody Knows, Nobody Cares

(A quote we first heard from Lost clothing) That is the feeling we got today watching (photographing) the second most popular surfer in the world Dane Reynolds in action at the Nike Lowers Pro. Take away all ASP/Nike employees, team managers, coaches, and media (videographers, photographers, writers) from the beach and you would pretty much have nobody there. This is an obvious sign that the internet has killed the interest to showing up and watching your surf stars in person.

Dane having fun off the ct

Half-way smile

Sunday At Lowers

Jeremy Carter excited as he is one of the San Clemente surfers invited into the trials for the Nike Lowers Pro

Mike Parsons getting a few waves for himself after coaching Kolohe for around 3 hours (yes, Nike does pay Snips to wear there product as well as getting paid by Kolohe as his full time coach)

Kalani David was recently seen on TMZ and when we asked him what was he thinking once the cameraman began filming him at LAX, his response, “I thought it was some kind of joke”

Say cheese

Don’t hit us

John John Florence two frames away from fins free

No more Nike 6.0 as it is now just Nike

April 29th, 2012


We hit up Lower Tresltes this morning with John John Florence where he was trying out a few different boards for the comp.

Sorry but the mental action photo (aerial) we got of John John today is already snatched up so please settle for this

Nat Young looking patriotic

Nike Lowers Pro is almost ready

Water photographer Jack English gives a huge thank you to master filmer/photographer Sonny Miller on the suggestion of wearing a life jacket while shooting in the water, Jack is hooked!

Pat Guduaskas always in motion

Three’s not a crowd at Lowers

My Name Is Not Punker

Pat Towersey photos are now uploaded

Hey skater boy show us a trick – Laguna Beach

The tourist would rather collect sea shells then watch you? – Mitchell’s Cove, Santa Cruz

Yes it’s a tow-at. Some obvious ways of telling; The air is much to high for the height of the wave and no leash. For whatever reason surfers do not like to wear leashes when doing tow-ats. – Laguna Beach

Nice little tube – Salt Creek
