Time to hit you with the first day of coverage from the 2011 Hurley Pro. Being that the first day of the competition was on a Sunday, the turn out of spectators and fans was great. Surfers from around the globe made the trek to this iconic surf event. Located in San Onfre Ca, Lower trestles is one of the west coast premier surf spots. Day one of the Hurley Pro was full of action. With the small surf competitors were forced to go all out in order to get a descent score. Opposed to what many people would think, small breaks are much harder to score on. In order to score on small waves, surfers need to rely on their technical ability rather than power, speed and huge airs.

Hurley in conjunction with Water 4 Waves is hard at work bringing communities and families in rural areas  fresh drinking water. With the innovative water filtration system designed by Jon Rose people now have the ability to easily filter non-potable water to fresh drinkable water anywhere in the world. More info available at Water 4 Waves

Dirty water on top travels down via gravity through the .1 micron filter. I don't believe It's meant for filtering  salt water though. Fresh water only!

Awesome, God bless Waves 4 Water.

What they did here was paste posters to the wall, then they spray painted borders around the posters which makes them look like they were all hand painted.
