Remember that time the WSL event at Trestles was pulled from the Tour schedule? It was replaced with the Surf Ranch Pro at Kelly Slater’s wave. Yeah, you do. Well, as luck would have it, the Hurley Pro Trestles was taken over by the Relik Longboard World Tour 2018 at Lower Trestles. Held back in mid-September in the days leading up to the Surf Ranch Pro, Trestles decided to show the pro surfing world just how much they’d miss her. It was firing. Longboarders, of course, are not generally welcomed at Lowers, but for three glorious days (for the longboarders, anyway), they had a firing Lowers lineup all to themselves. Above are three heats from Tommy Witt on a 9’6 Model T by Donald Takayama.
