LOWER TRESTLES, California (Sunday, September 9, 2007) – Round 1 of the Boost Mobile Pro presented by Hurley will begin today with the venue at Lower Trestles offering up clean two-to-three-foot (1 metre) surf.
Event No. 6 of 10 on the 2007 Foster's ASP World Tour, the Boost Mobile Pro will hope to complete all 16 heats of Round 1, with Heat 1 hitting the water at 8am.
"It's about two-to-three-foot this morning and it is unfortunate that it has dropped a little bit overnight but there are still some clean, little waves out there," Event Director Mike Parsons said. "It's going to continue to drop tomorrow so we will be getting underway with all 16 heats of Round 1 today. Despite the fact that it's small, we still have clean conditions and are excited to get things started."
Day 1 will deliver a slew of dynamic match-ups with current ASP frontrunners Mick Fanning (AUS), Taj Burrow (AUS), Kelly Slater (USA) and Andy Irons (HAW) squaring off against dangerous wildcards Jordy Smith (ZAF), Sunny Garcia (HAW), Dane Reynolds (USA) and Rob Machado (USA).
