Sometimes, the stars just all seem to align. The World Surf League championship tour landed at Lower Trestles with a flurry of summer south swell on tap for the cobblestone mecca. Dreams were realised and hearts were broken at the beloved San Clemente break in an incredible day of competition.

With Final Five contestants practicing and local pros like Caroline Marks joining in on the perfection, there was no shortage of high action moments. Free-surf documentarian Scotty Hammonds was tee’d up on the beach to document all the action and has packed together the best 5 minutes for your viewing pleasure in. Dive in and enjoy!
