It is that time of year again for surfing's best to hit the cobblestones at Lower Trestles. The waiting period is now on, the women are currently in the water, from Sept. 9th to Sept. 20th. The forecast looks good for one of the most rippable waves on the planet to come alive. Brazilian Gabriela Medina leads the ratings but there are many others in the hunt, including the man himself Kelly Slater. Check Pedro's Tacos, Sugar Shack and Hapa J's for good post-surf eats and pick from a plethora of cheap places to stay just north of the surf break including Holiday Inn Express, Best Western, Hampton Inn and the Harbor Inn; all these should be under $100. Go check out the contest and enjoy one of the best beach towns in California.
