DANE REYNOLDS AND JADSON ANDRE SET THE PERFORMANCE BAR ON DAY 1.
Day 1 of the Hurley Pro at Trestles went off with clean three-to-four foot (1.5 metre) waves rolling through one of the worldu2;019s most rippable waves in Lower Trestles and the newly-minted ASP Top 34 took elevated the performance level yet again.
Dane Reynolds (USA), 25, current ASP World No. 4, stumbled in the opening heat of the morning, losing to an in-form Chris Davidson (AUS), 33. Despite his relegation to the elimination Round 2, Reynolds put in a sensational afternoon performance, blending backhand fin-free maneuvers with a brutal forehand assault to collect the highest heat total of the event, a 17.70 out of a possible 20, to dispatch lethal, local wildcard Kolohe Andino (USA), 16.
