Every time there’s a surf contest at Lower Trestles it conjures up some amazing history and great stories within the Body Glove Family. We love it all, the wave, the competition, and all the incredible heats that have gone down over the years. One of our fondest memories is that of the 1990 Body Glove Surf Bout which many consider the professional launching point for Kelly Slater, now the most accomplished surfer in history. With the help of Twenty Magazine, join us in taking a look back at the iconic event in their inaugural issue, The Trestles issue.
