Trestles turns it on for the Boost Mobile Pro!
The Boost Mobile Pro presented by Hurley scored perfect 3-5 foot waves for the duration of round one and the first two heats of round two. Lower Trestles in Southern California hosted the worlds top 46 surfers for the seventh stop on the World Championship Tour of Surfing. The perfect A-frame peak produced world class waves and long rip-able walls for the best in the business to let loose and show case their ability. With such perfect and playful conditions the Boost Mobile Pro, turned into the Boost Air Show with the majority of surfers turning their focus on high risk high reward, fin busting moves.
