Jackson Bunch Lower Trestles, CA Photo: Andrew Oliver Maui’s Jackson Bunch began his recent trip to California with an afternoon excursion to Lower Trestles and it would be his only session away from the stress and demands of the ISA World Junior Championship in Huntington Beach. For this one afternoon, he was free to be a surf-stoked grom in some epic California surf. From that point, Bunch transformed into a competitive assassin steamrolling through eight days of one of the most gruelling events in all of surfing, to an eventual Gold Medal. This flawless extended front-side nosepick was a clear projection of what was in store, radical surfing done with speed and style rarely seen, the true ingredients of a World Champion.
