Gerry Lopez First to Surf The Left at Kelly Slater’s Surf Ranch

The 11x World Champ Kelly Slater knew exactly who he wanted to ride the first wave at his Surf Ranch 2.0

“Kelly has created the quintessential perfect wave,” Says Gerry Lopez, “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.”

“That’s the future, bro,” he eloquently added. “That’s it.”

Via @KellySlater on Instagram: @gerrylopezsurfboards it was fun to watch the eclipse with you and an honor to have you christen #TheLeft at @kswaveco #SurfRanch for us. Thank you from our entire team. And a special thanks to all the people behind the scenes who have helped make this dream and idea a reality over these past few years. It can’t be legal to have this much fun! 🙌🏽🏄🏽🌚@wsl

Gerry Lopez added via Instagram: I saw a glimpse of the future last week and after getting to sample it, I’d have to say…the future looks bright ahead! And it felt right to go left…@kswaveco @wsl
