As a solid south swell rolled through Southern California, it was little surprise where the all-star cast of surfers who call Orange County home would be heading.
With Lowers pumping in the six-foot zone for most of the week, recent high school graduate and future U.S. Olympic surfer Caroline Marks was looking stronger than ever. In footage captured by the WSL's Brady Lawrence, it's perfectly clear why so many consider Marks a future World Champion.
Also in the lineup was Championship Tour surfer Filipe Toledo, who's been in exceptional form lately. From sessions around San Clemente to shaping his own board with the Sharpe Eye crew, he's make good use of this pause in the Tour.
Then there was former CT star Josh Kerr, who didn't let a longer board prevent him from flying above the lip. Then there was the viral sensation of the party wave with Torrey Meister and Kelly Slater, which featured a pair of synchronized carving 360s.
Lowers has seen a pretty good run of waves all week, but Wednesday was one of the best days of the summer thus far. And thankfully the action's just going to keep going as an even bigger swell is on tap for the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
