2012 Nike Lowers Pro Preview

What: The 2012 Nike Lowers Pro 6* Prime ASP World Tour event.
Where: Lower Trestles in northern San Diego County. Watch it live at nikelowerspro.com and one Time Warner Cable in selected regions.
Who: From Occy to Dane to John John to Kolohe Andino, the Nike Lowers Pro lineup reads like a who’s who of professional surfing.
When: May 1-5.

With a south swell forecasted to fill in during the event, expect to see the most high performance surfing contest ever. That’s no exaggeration either, every year at this contest the level of surfing rises to phenomenal levels. Last year Brazil’s Miguel Pupo rose to the top, this year everyone seems to think San Clemente’s own Kolohe Andino will win the golden railroad spike. While Kolohe is gonna be tough to beat, expect his fellow World Tour guys to give a run for the money.

Who’s your pick to win?
