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
(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
Jeremy Carter excited as he is one of the San Clemente surfers invited into the trials for the Nike Lowers Pro
Don’t hit us
John John Florence two frames away from fins free
No more Nike 6.0 as it is now just Nike
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
Today’s housing choice
Pat Guduaskas always in motion
Pat Towersey photos are now uploaded
Hey skater boy show us a trick – Laguna Beach
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
Today we have began uploading images of Bruce Irons which start back from his 1995 NSSA National day’s at Lower Trestles to the G-Shock US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach to the O’neill Cold Water Classic at Steamer Lane Santa Cruz and evolve over to the North Shore of Oahu where he is surfing Backdoor, Pipeline and Sunset Beach during the Xcel Pro.
