Trestles, the iconic Southern California break recently saved from an expanded highway, is tarting itself up.
Despite being one of the most popular breaks in Southern California, Trestles (actually 3 breaks – Uppers, Middles and Lowers) is a fair distance from the road and the car park. To get there you need to walk for 15 or so minutes through undeveloped, wild scrubland; you need to look both ways and cross the railway tracks, and keep your eyes wide for snakes in the grass. In other words, surfing this most Californian of breaks is still a ‘nature experience’.
But ordering nature is the American thing to do and Trestles will soon get its very own human fingerprint. These images are from one entry into a design competition for the access walkway. See more at:
