NIKE 6.0 LOWERS - EVENT PREVIEW
MAY 3 - 11
Location: Lower Trestles, San Clemente California
Holding Period: May 3-7, 2011
Event duration: 5 Day Contest
The Nike 6.0 Lowers Pro in conjunction with the Oakley Pro Junior is an ASP Men’s Prime / 5-star Pro Junior event that boasts a field of 96 international professional surfers who will compete for a part of the impressive $250,000 prize purse and ASP ratings points.
Enticed by the opportunity to surf perfect Lower Trestles—one of the most high-performance wave on the Southern California coast—with only three other surfers out, the Nike 6.0 Lowers Pro is a must on the calendars of some of the world’s best competitors. In addition, with a recent transition to the ASP One Ranking System, 96 surfers in this Prime event will have even more at stake going into the competition. Lowers is one of the few singular events on the ASP Prime schedule that has played a critical role in defining the path that future greats would walk down. Jeff Booth, Kelly Slater, Andy Irons, Shane Beschen, CJ Hobgood, Benny Bourgeois, Fred Patacchia, and Gabe Kling all have hoisted the coveted trophy. With increasing talent and a whole new host of contenders entering the scene, 2011 promises to be yet another unforgettable year.
