Vans US Open and Hurley Pro ... Back to Back?

lowers-square.jpg

For the first time ever, the ASP is considering holding the WQS six-star Prime Vans US Open and the WCT Hurley Pro at Lowers back to back. ASP is currently in talks with the California State Parks and IMG trying to figure out how best to make it happen, whether it's moving the US Open later in the summer or having the Lowers pro in the middle of August. Either way it's going to keep the pros from having to travel back and forth from Tahiti, back and forth from Portugal, and so on. Which makes sense. If both tour stops were back to back it would not only mean more pros would be here for the ASP Prime event, but they wouldn't have to spend all that time and money traveling from here for the US Open in late July, then back to here for the Lowers Pro in September. It would truly make the So Cal stop on the ASP World Tour a "leg" on Tour, much like the French leg, the Australian leg and of course the Triple Crown in Hawaii. Nothing's been set in stone yet, and although it might not happen for the summer of 2015, don't be surprised if it all starts in 2016. The only thing up for debate at this point are the dates and times of both events. Stay tuned here for details as we get them.
