Hurley Pro Trestles: Shea Lopez Pundit Picks 2015Hurley Pro Trestles: Shea Lopez Pundit Picks his team for the eighth stop on the WSL Championship Tour at the skate park wave in SoCal.
San Clemente, California is to the United States as Coolangatta, Queensland is to Australia. With Lowers serving as the foundation for this bustling surf community, this incredibly playful and uniform wave drew me and my brother, Cory, to set up a residence there during our time competing on the World Tour. Drawing in top talents (and, well, some vagabonds alike), surfers migrate to San Clemente to find their place in this ultra-competitive and continually growing community. Current world title contenders Adriano de Souza and Filipe Toledo are now regular faces in the lineup. And it makes sense. With two major WSL events here, careers can be made and lost on the cobbles. As we stare down a wide-open title race, expect to see some serious battles when the horn blows.
