Summertime with the temperature in the high 80’s and the anticipation of great surf breaking from tropical storm ‘Odile’, the Carver crew couldn’t resist the chance to be part of the action at the Hurley Pro at Trestles in San Clemente, California.
With some of the world’s best surfers competing for the coveted title, the competition was fierce, with buzzer beating scores and epic runs. Milling about the contest were many of Carver’s ambassadors and team riders, including Josh Kerr and Barbara Mueller, who use their Carver boards to train for events just like these.
As the contest winded down, we spotted a quiver of Carver boards front row and center, admiring the event, poised to make their own concrete waves.
