2014 VIDEO TRIALS

Hurley Pro Video Trials

Over 100 of the world's best surfers submitted entries for the first-ever global video contest. A panel of judges – featuring Rob Machado, Brett Simpson, Lakey Peterson, Pat O’Connell and Mike Parsons – narrowed the selection down to the best 16 competitors to fill the final bracket.

Who’s THIS year’s wildcard? You be the judge.

Welcome to the Hurley Pro Video Trials. 
Choose this year’s final Hurley Pro wildcard surfer in three easy steps:

  1. WATCH: Proceed to the round below and watch each “heat” consisting of two surfers, two waves. Check all the heats and tally up your scores. We will be running one round per day (starting 8/4) for four straight days.
  2. VOTE: Who scored highest in each heat? Log in through Facebook and pick your winners.
  3. PROMOTE: As the world narrows the top 16 down to the final candidates, be sure to tell your friends who you voted for.  Final voting will take place August 7 and the winner will be announced on August 8.

Have fun, and may the best wildcard win!
Each round lasts 24 hours beginning at 12:00 a.m. PDT and ending at 11:59 p.m. PDT. The surfer with the most votes at the end of the round will proceed.
