The Hurley Pro Is Here

Sunday, 15 September 2013

The seven day waiting period of the Hurley Pro kicks off tomorrow at Lower Trestles. The forecast isn't perfect but the word on the street at the moment is that competition directors will try run the entire thing in the first few days. There's a whole lot of educated views on who'll win this event so we thought we'd give the microphone to @nvtewhite (or @iloveshetlands) and hit the beach of Snapper Rocks to ask the people who they think will win. 

Trestles, much like Keramas, is the ultimate canvas for those with a whole enchilada of moves and you can expect to see guys like John John Florence, Jordy Smith and Dane Reynolds to be looking at home. Although according to the people of Coolangatta we shouldn't count out Joel Parkinson or Mick Fanning either. 

Julian Wilson and Taj Burrow both look in fine form in Red Bull's latest 21Days series. Julian looks to have a confidence we haven't really seen much of in the past.

We won't be seeing Owen Wright at the Hurley Pro, or at any other events this year. Soon after filming the video above, Owen announced his withdrawal from 2013 due to his back injury sustained during the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach earlier this year. We'll hopefully be watching Owen surfing at 110% in 2014.  

Kelly Slater will be coming into this event looking to make it three in a row as well as holding down his top spot on the WCT rankings. This video filmed in POV style of Kelly surfing Trestles last year is more than worth your time.

 

There's a 7.30am (12.30am AEST) call but our best bet is things will kick off between 8-9am.
