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!

Gift Set - Wedge Handboard

SECRET STASH - Grom Soft Top

Not sold on it

I had really high hopes. I have been able to use the Bula on a couple good days. I'm liking my old board better so far. But will try it a couple more times before I return it just to be sure. I have none of the below issues with my Enjoy planer, and thinking of going back.
1. The dam thing is not secure on my hand. No mater how tight I make it. It litterally pops off my hand while on a wave. Its getting really anoying having to constantly pay attention to it.
2. I switch my hand depending on the wave direction. It's tough for me to get a grip on the nose, pull it off then pull tightly on other hand in time. I've missed a couple good ones because of this.
3. The pad that goes accross the top of my hand doesnt cover my whole hand and the seam starts to rub on my hand and is uncomfortable.
4. Not a huge deal but wasnt happy that there were some small cosmetc defects on the board. Eslescially for the price
5. The board bag is kind of ridiculous. Its huge and picture on website isnt to scale, but I probably just wont use it. It was basically free.

I think the only thing I can say positive is I think it has good control... after getting used to the angle I need, and may be a bit more bouyant to pull me out of water for speed. But i need to try it a few times more and figure out how to keep the dam thing on!

I am giving these to my grandsons at the end of the month. I am sure they will love them.
