blog_lowers“Dude, I fully burned Kelly Slater at Trestles” claim these 2 party wavers for the rest of their lives. This flailing phenomenon has become a bragging-right bucket-lister for heaps of weekend warriors on every tour stop. Photo: Shawn Parkin

It’s hard to imagine these roller-coasting snake artists were locals or in the Lowers Raid, but they’re lucky the king didn’t take their head off during his warm up for the 2013 Hurley Pro.  What pro would you snake, or would you yield to the guys with the world’s highest wave count?
