    Haha, I hear you. If you had a place even half as good as that, I would keep it a secret too...

    But this day in age, I would have to challenge that statement, since every breaking wave from Miami to Nova Scotia has already been identified. But hey, if you got it, keep it. Secret.

    Fair enough. Then I will assume that you are just showing east coast bias and that there isn't a wave as rippable as trestles anywhere on the eastern seaboard =)

    Call the ASP and see if they will trade the Terstles tour stop and move it east.

    or since you live on the east coast now you can give up the west coast bias. Have you surfed the whole east coast to make that claim. i've surfed good trestles a bunch and can compare it to waves i surfed here. plus the wave that curren is surfing in that vid is mexico. it was a surfers journal story.

    Didn't look at the curren video. I was just speaking on trestles. No, I have not surfed the entire east coast, but I see every video and photo for the most part that makes it through the media on a good swell, I have never, ever, ever, ever seen a video of a wave on the east coast that even remotely resembles Trestles.

    And I would like to think I don't have west coast bias anymore. I am just saying, there has been an ASP tour stop there for years for a reason. Kelly Slater says that his favorite wave in the world is lower trestles. There are thousands of videos of trestles just going bonkers and guys just shredding it apart. I have surfed it many times, and like I said, its not the biggest or best wave I have ever surf, but the most "RIPPABLE"....

    If Taj Burrow, Mick Fanning, Kelly Slater and John John all say that trestles is the most rippable wave on earth, I will not only believe it, but agree with them.....

    Not saying there are not world class waves on the east coast. I am saying that there is no where else on the PLANET like trestles. And guys who get paid to surf and have surfed every good wave on the planet wouldn't argue with that....

    Just saying, if you think anywhere on the eastern side of the US breaks like that, and allows sections to hold up like that, I would love to see it. I really would. But my argument is that it simply doesn't exist.

    Not being a hater.

    Maybe I should have phrased it differently. But I could never see me having a mini simmons in my quiver and thinking it was a good idea to take it out at the washout, or anywhere in MD or anywhere I have lived and spent a lot of time. Not that you can't get good waves on a board like that, I am just saying you won't have the opportunity to swing it around and rip it on such a playful wave.

    Trestles never dies out on the inside, it just keeps going, and going and going until that final little ankle high section snaps over the rocks on the inside....

    Its just a freakish wave and I have never seen one like it, on video or in real life... Not the best wave in the world, but it is the best wave of its kind for sure.
