Day 1 Photo Highlights (Quiksilver Pro)

Here are just a bunch of photos that I took this morning when the trails were happening. All photos of trials winner Asher Nolan are here.

As always, click on the photos for larger images.

I didn’t see too many drunks, druggies or troublemakers.  Just looked like families, surfing fans and happy people enjoying a great day at the beach.

I took this photo around 10am.  Not the biggest crowd in the world, but not bad for a qualifying around.  Tons of people showed up right when the trails ended at around 11:30am.



Taking advantage of the media credentials, I decided to get a birds-eye view.



A view of the press tower.  Media Perk: All the Vitamin Water you want. (too much sugar for me)

LBHS Surf Team being given a tour:


The Final Four Paddling Out – Asher Nolan (USA), Jeremy Johnston (USA), Keanu Asing (Haw) & Garrett Parkes (Aus) – Not in that order.

A Paddle Battle led to some bumping:










DAY 1 was a success. DAY 2 (Monday, Sept 5th) kicks off with the 7am opening ceremony & a possible start to the main event.
