The party wave mood was in full effect when all 60-plus people got on the custom, 42-foot board. The group hoped to break the Guinness Book records for both World's Largest Surfboard and Most People Riding a Surfboard at Once.
Next stop? Huntington Beach, where the Surfrider Foundation sponsored a beach cleanup and the Hurley team was trying to set a world record for fitting the most people on a surfboard at once.
Asing tried his hand at filming and surfing. Like Andersen, he's also a recent transplant to San Clemente and his comfort showed (not everyone can surf and film -- at the same time). While he grew up in Honolulu, he said in his Faces of 2015 interview that these days, Lower Trestles is home.
ISD means party waves, all day long. Andersen, the four-time Champ, recently moved to San Clemente after years in Huntington Beach, Calif. Here, she was right at home on a Trestles lefthander -- and a WSL media maven catching her in action.
The first stop of the day was at Trestles, the gem of a spot in San Clemente, Calif. Four-time World Champion Lisa Andersen (USA), Championship Tour rookie Keanu Asing (HAW) and Qualifying Series shredder Nate Yeomans (USA) met up for a morning session.
Even the pros need prep time. Before the sun broke through June gloom, Yeomans and Asing got ready for their session on the street.
Happy International Surfing Day
Saturday, June 20 is International Surfing Day (#ISD15) and to celebrate, the World Surf League is taking a road trip up the California coast. The team will be stopping along the way to meet up with athletes, check out a few events, and of course, catch a few waves.
