Pat Gudauskas At Lowers

The 2008 Nike 6.0 Pro at Lowers proved to be another step towards the WCT for Vans rider Pat Gudauskas. Pat, seated in the round of 64, surfed his way through world class competition to secure a spot in the final, however with no gas left and a solid heat Pat ended the comp in 4th. While not a win in the lowers pro, making the final put Pat back on top of the WQS and well on his way to his most successful campaign toward the pro tour to date.

Also competing at Lowers were Pat's brothers Dane and Tanner, who battled through a couple of rounds to gain points towards qualification, Ratboy and Shea Lopez also surfed their way through a couple of rounds helping to seat them higher for the up-coming US Open and El Ponto Loco. In the Pro JR. At Lowers Vans newest team member Andrew Doheny made his way to the quarter final where a lack of waves made it difficult to transfer out of a combo situation.
