VIDEO: Kelly Slater Wins 50th World Tour Stop, Hurley Pro Trestles 2012 Recap

Written by:

History was made at Lower Trestles in San Clemente, California September 20th, 2012 as reigning champion, Kelly Slater (USA), won the Hurley Pro at Trestles for the sixth time, the third consecutive win for the event. This was Slater’s 50th world tour win, in 4 – 6ft and overhead sets at the A-frame wave he has been surfing since he was 12-years-old.

 

It all came down to one final heat, where Kelly Slater (USA) and Joel Parkinson (AUS) met face to face to battle for the win. The conditions let down a bit though during their heat, making it difficult for both competitors to find waves. Slater still looked strong despite the conditions, ripping apart every wave he paddled into. Slater performed on a four-fin quad surfboard and checked off his 6th event title win at Lower Trestles.
