Right before the sound of the horn, Rob Machado posted the score he needed to upset Taj Burrow. Machado is a legend who’s still at the top of his game, so it’s hard to call it an upset. The Hurley Pro Trestles is the 6th event on the 2009 ASP World Tour. Pat O’Connell, Hurley Pro Trestles Contest Director said “I’d like to run 18 heats again.” O’Connell continued, “We have two swells running now. We have a little southwest and the leftover northwest, so it looks more like a typical day at Trestles today, so I think everybody is pretty stoked.” Surfline, official forecasters of the Hurley Pro Trestles, is calling for today’s of Northwest swell to slightly today and are still tracking a south swell for later in the week.
