Video: Gerry Lopez First to Sample Kelly Slater’s Left Wave Pool

Kelly Slater unveiled the left-hand-breaking wave at his wave pool.

Legendary goofy-footer Gerry Lopez was the first to sample it. “Kelly has created the quintessential perfect wave,” says Gerry, “To be able to get that over and over again is really going to push the envelope of surfing like it’s never been pushed before.”

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch, Gerry Lopez kicked out of his first wave, went over to Kelly laughing and said simply, “that’s the future, bro.”
