A few weeks back, the House of Marley crew had the chance to hang out at the Hurley Pro in the legendary surf spot of Lower Trestles in California. It was an epic contest that saw some sick waves and heavy competition amongst the best surfers on the ASP world tour including Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning and Taj Burrow.
In the end, the number seven stop of the 2013 tour was a dog fight between Burrow with fellow competitor Julian Wilson. Yet, it was Burrow’s heavy backhanded runs and some gnarlier righthanded runners that took the Busselton, WA native to the top of the podium. Despite finishing in ninth place, Mick Fanning took over the lead in overall points on the tour with only three contests left in this year’s schedule.
While at the Hurley Pro, we had time to catch up with some of our friends including Hurley owner Bob Hurley, Hurley Waves For Water founder Jon Rose and HOM brand manager Jeffrey Baldwin. Check out these interviews below from our buds over at L.E.A.F., or Leaders of Environmental Action Films, and get up-to-date with what’s going on with the entire crew.
As our brand manager, Jeffrey Baldwin has been in charge of shaping the direction of our brand and Team Marley. Stay tuned for some huge names that will be coming to the Team Marley crew and, in the meantime, check out this interview with Jeffrey.
As the founder of one of the biggest extreme sports clothing companies in the world, Bob Hurley has made a huge impact on surf, skate and snow. Additionally, he has had an impact on the environment by starting Hurley H20, a water-based initiative. Way to #LiveMarley Bob!
Ben Edwards and his Waves For Water crew also imbibe in the #LiveMarley spirit by taking great stride to bring clean water to those who need it. Through unique efforts like their “Buy a Filter” campaign, donation drives and location-based projects, Edwards and his team have already helped to make a huge difference.
