Well, whoopeee, it’s Lowers! The wave talked down by the local crew as “Slowers” provides a kind of re-set for the world tour after all the Pacific reef break hijinks. Groomed and playful, with its farcically easy lip area and surprising down-the-line speed, this is the Snapper Rocks of the back third of the year –a place to nail down your top 10 shot, to aggravate a small injury, and to blow your sponsor’s mind with some high tech brilliance. For a couple of surfers in both boys and girls camps, it looms as a potential world title deal-maker.
