 Every year during September the worlds best Surfers come to Southern California and take over Lower Trestles. The Lowers Pro is the home of the top 32 surfers for two weeks and no wave goes un ridden during this time. The surf team took this time to surf together and share their past experiences of one of their favorite waves on the planet. Bede, Damo and Keanu reflect on Lowers and why it is so special to them.

 

 

Keanu

What is your favorite memory about Lowers?  

Favorite memory would probably when I was doing nationals and get to surf it when i was in mini groms or something its was amazing going from a tiny kid that couldn't get wave from the crowd and then to only a few people out there in heat was pretty cool memory.

 

What do you like about the wave?

Do you like the lefts or rights better? I really like going right out there it has so many perfect sections on it and its hard to pass up a long right hander like that, but I don't mind going left too. it seems everyone likes going right anyways.

 

What's your way to beat the crowd?  

I just get amongst it and get after it. I just go straight to the middle and hopefully be the one on the wave and calling people off, but i like to catch whatever I can when I'm out there cause theres lots people.

 

Who are some of your favorite surfers that surf Lowers?

i like watching brother at lowers, chris ward is cool, Jordy out there is amazing.

 

How do you get down to Lowers? Bike, Drop off? Walk? Swim?

If i can try to get dropped off if not, its a nice walk!

 

Damo

 

What is your favorite memory about Lowers?

Hanging at the beach all day, kinda feels like your on a mini adventure, with how you have to travel a bit to get down there and there is no houses or buildings around, and then at times hearing the guns going off from camp Pendleton. 

 

What do you like about the wave?

It's really versatile like you can pretty much work on anything with your surfing except barrels.

 

Do you like the lefts or rights better?

Both I usually will start by hunting the lefts get the wave count up, then try and get the long right. 

 

What's your way to beat the crowd?  

Be there all day and when you see the window open up, nail it. Then when I gets to hectic just go straight in before you get all salty. 

 

Who are some of your favorite surfers that surf Lowers?

My favorite are the groms because they always remind me of why I started surfing and they are always laughing and freaking out on the smallest waves and having the best time. 

 

How do you get down to Lowers?

My friends Drop me at the short walk and I take there stuff and they ride the bike down.

 

 

Bede

What is your favorite memory about Lowers?

Definitely from 2006 when i won the Boost Mobile Pro. 

 

What do you like about the wave? Do you like the lefts or rights better? 

I love the speed of the wave and how it just trickles down the cobble stones. Definitely the rights . Its such a open face canvas to let loose.

 

What's your way to beat the crowd? 

Getting up super early or just putting on the blinkers and pretending that no one is out and catching everything 

 

Who are some of your favorite surfers that surf Lowers?

definitely Kelly, Joel and  Mick. I love watching those guys out there . The surf the whole wave. They don't just do one big turn and blow the rest of the way.

 

How do you get down to Lowers? Bike, Drop off? Walk? Swim?

I get down there how ever i can. Bike , Drop off or swim. I love the bike ride down early though.
