Save Trestles Rally June 19th

trestles2

Trestles and San Onofre need at least one hour of your time on June 19th to help persuade the Regional Water Quality Control Board to deny the TCA’s permit to build the first “segment” of their ill-fated toll road.

In 2008, surfers and activists organized the largest turn-out for a public hearing in State history—and when the Coastal Commission saw 3,500 people in the audience, they were persuaded to deny the plan. We need to do that again! This time, we need hundreds of people to attend the Board meeting on June 19th so we can shut down this road once more.

WHERE: Water Quality Control Board? Meeting Room: 9174 Sky Park Court San Diego, CA 92123

King Slater retook his front row contest parking spot (yes, they actually assign parking by rank) with 4 perfect rides to win The Volcom Fiji Pro at flawless Cloudbreak. He threaded throaty tubes with ageless agility in his high performance Quiksilver Brigg Boardshorts. The 4-way stretch surf trunks has a 20 inch outseam that falls just above the knee to prevent ballooning and hang-ups. Get Slater’s Boardshorts.

Nat Young
put in his bid for Rookie of the Year by locking in double barrels and buzzer beater wins…except when playing b-ball with seabass. He and bunk mate Kolohe Andino rock Hurley’s Block Party with the iconic stripe and rash free stretch comfort. Shop a dozen colors here.

fijitajTaj’s last second loss to seabass in rd 5 woulda been a victory for others, but Taj trains his ass off all year in his high performance Invert Boardshorts by Billabong. Taj aptly goes inverted, and so should you here.

Jordy Smith came in as a comp favorite with his full bag of tricks, and he bagged some smoking tubes with heavy rail work ta boot. His 5th place finish keeps him in the hunt for a word title, and he’ll surely flare up in the Hyperfreak shorts at Karamas next week.

fijijoelParko was gone fishing,  missing the first round, but fought back for a quarter final finish. Joel logged nearly perfect heat scores, walking on water with Billabong Transverse’s Water repellent coating that eliminates absorption, friction and rashes.
