A previous guest on ‘The Daily Habit’ and star of Fuel TV’s original series, ‘First Hand’, the iconic Lopez has been engaged in a quiet campaign that could see him re-qualify for the elite ASP ‘Dream Tour’. With a 3rd Place finish at the 2010 Margaret River Drug Aware Pro PRIME event in Australia, followed by the recent 9th place at Lower Trestles, Transworld Surf's 2008 'Photo Slut of the Year' winner and former ASP World # 3, could be back on his way to challenging for the coveted #1 spot on the new World Rankings.
Cory's competitive efforts have landed him 3 X Games Gold Medals, a Gold Medal (Team) and Silver Medal (Individual) at the 2009 ISA World Games, Championship Titles at the U.S. Open of Surfing, The ASP Billabong Pro, Teahupoo (Tahiti) and a third place Finish at the Banzai Pipeline Masters; among numerous other accolades. A multi-year Top 10 finalist on both the ASP World Tour and the prestigious Surfer Magazine Poll Awards; the two time 'Guts for Glory' winner; was honored with Surfer Mag’s Best Tube Ride of the year in 2009 for his long barrel (video) sequence, documented at the secret 'Left' Point Break; discovered during Surfing Mag’s Google Earth Challenge (somewhere in Africa).
Cory's sponsors include, O'Neill (Wetsuits & Clothing), Anarchy Eyewear, Rockstar Energy, Freestyle Watch, DVS Shoes, Placebo Surfboards, Boost Mobile and Blackline Accessories.
