BOOST MOBILE PRO ROUND THREE IGNITES IN EPIC SWELL
News provided by ASP World Tour on 16 September 2005
The Boost Mobile Pro presented by Quiksilver will get underway with round three at 8am local time this morning in excellent two-metre (six foot) plus conditions at Lower Trestles.
The Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour has managed to score epic waves at almost every event so far this year and today that run of luck continues and surfers can’t wait to get amongst the swells.
Due to the size of the swell and the distance of the paddle back out into the lineup organisers have opted to use “jet ski assist” where after each ride surfers are literally dragged back out behind the waves.
Kicking of with the solid matchup of Taj Burrow (AUS) and Tim Curren (USA) the day will continue until round three is completed and will end with the Mazda Big Air Show. Other anticipated matchups include Kelly Slater (USA) versus local wildcard Dane Reynolds (USA) in heat eight, Phil Macdonald (AUS) versus Luke Stedman (AUS) in heat 11, Damien Hobgood (USA) versus Greg Emslie (ZAF) in heat 12 and Mick Fanning (AUS) versus Kirk Flintoff (AUS) in heat 13.
Speaking on the sizeable conditions facing him, Trent Munro was also eager to hit the water and was amazed at the transformation of the Trestles break.
“It's in the five to six foot range and perfect really,” said Munro. “It doesn't even look like the same place today.”
The newly arrived swell has built and travelled from as far away as Tahiti and is the biggest to hit the Californian coast so far this summer. Special measures were even taken overnight so as to avoid the contest on-beach structure being washed away.
