Jimmicane’s Passion Picks

Surfing Magazine’s Jimmicane gives his passion picks for the 2014 Hurley Pro at Trestles.

Pick ‘em
The Elite: Medina, Kolohe
The Grinders: Jordy, Julian, Nat, JJF
The Strugglers: Crews, Muniz

Skeptical
The Elite: Taj
The Grinders: no one
The Strugglers: everyone

Nothing will make your head spin like trying to pick a fantasy team after watching the world’s best destroy Lowers for three days straight. One minute you’re set thinking Kelly will continue his stellar track record here and win again, the next you see Michel Bourez and he looks completely unstoppable. The fact is, everyone surfs insane at Lowers. If you pushed your grandma into a set wave here she’d probably rip. It’s very easy, and thus very fun to watch because these guys make it their bitch.

Shea’s detailed write-up

Hurley Pro Trestles Pundit Shea Lopez picks his team for the 2014 contest at Trestles.

Lowers allows surfers to go their biggest in a wide range of conditions. With yet another swell gracing Southern California now, everyone should have had plenty of sessions to readjust to more rippable waves after the heavy tubes of Teahupoo. Looking at the waiting period, forecast charts point to strong swell at the finish of the Hurley Pro, and on bigger days at Lowers, traditional power surfing has proven a winning recipe for success.
