The second annual Trestles Raid just went down, and the pack of San Clemente surf rats showed up in force. Led by Riley Metcalf aka “Captain Barbossa” and a crew twice the size as last year shredded in full costume with decorated boards to boot. The always tense line-up at Lower Trestles only had a few eggy hard board hold-outs who fileted a couple crew members, but they successfully took over the wave and already antsy for the next ambush.
Viewer Discretion Advised
Success was owed to the boys at Catchsurf, who supplied heaps of Odysea Soft-tops, Beater boards, and some explicitly themed shapes. Beater Boy Johnny Redmond was in rare form, rocking the assless chaps and other “foreign objects” to match his uber phallic sled.
Catchsurf boards aren’t your boggy Wavestorm COSTCO board either. The lightweight performance of the Odysea lets you surf it like a shortboard without the thing flexing and flopping down the face. Made in San Clemente Ca, the CatchSurf boys have debunked the soft-top stigma since the beachbreaks are littered with this safe alternative when conditions aren’t optimal for your daily driver.

Lost Designs By Matt Biolos Lost Surfboards and designs stole the spotlight at lower trestles. Pure Mayhem
If you watched the Nike Lowers Pro webcast, you heard the heavy praise for the Lost Mayhem surfboard shaped by Matt Biolos. About 50% of the surfers competed with a some variation of this model and they’re psyching on the Mayhem’s high performance fit with the wave at lower trestles.
Biolos said he shaped around 100 Mayhem boards last week for the field of surfers from 18 different countries. He started shaping boards specifically for trestles since he graduated San Clemente Highschool in 1987, so the competing surfers wanted his expertise to gain the upper hand in the lowers shred fest.
The Lost brand celebrates the radical rejection of the status quo, which is exactly why the state of surfing lives above the lip today. Lost boards are shaped to push the limits of surfing, and Lost clothing is designed for the black sheep in the action sports world.
Lost designs originate from the surfboard art Matt used to airbrush on boards in the back of Herbie Flether’s shaping room. Lost products road tested and influenced by teamriders like the Fletchers, Lopezs, Hos, Beschens, Andinos and Wardo.
