2014 Hurley Pro Trestles
The 2014 Hurley Pro at Trestles was full of surprises on its opening day, with some unexpected wildcard wins delivering some big upsets. American Tanner Gudauskas outscored surfing veteran and six-times Trestles winner Kelly Slater by .13 of a point in his heat to upset the heat.
"It’s a good feeling to win but there was definitely an element of luck out there,” Gudauskas said. “At the beginning of the heat I was taking off on bad waves but then I got more into my rhythm. That was fun and I’m stoked on the result. It’s unbelievable to be here and have so much support, but before my heats I really need to relax.”
Costa Rican Carlos Munoz pulled off a victory over Brazilian ASP ranking leader Gabriel Medina with one last push during his final ride at Hurley Pro at Trestles.
“I can’t believe how everything happened,” Munoz said. “I got this chance, I prepared myself mentally. I heard everybody screaming and I knew I needed a score. I gave my heart to that last one, so I’m glad the judges liked it. I can’t believe it. When I heard the score, I started crying.”
Keep watching the Hurley Pro at Trestles as the competition continues through September 20th. Be sure to take a break and watch the Swatch Women's Pro running in conjunction with the Hurley Pro. Santa Barbara, CA native Lakey Petersen took down Hawaiian two-time world champion Carissa Moore in Round 4 of the competition, so you know this is going to be an exciting one to watch!
