Entries for Safe Trestles are now under jury review leading to next week's exhibit of semifinalists at the Nike 6.0 Lowers Pro surf competition at Trestles May 04 - May 08.

The exhibit, designed by Gerard Minakawa of Bamboo DNA will explore the history and significance of Trestles and highlight the top 10 entries from Phase One of the competition.

Safe Trestles, a 2-phase design competition hosted by Architecture for Humanity and partners the San Onofre Foundation and Surfrider, explored ways to create a safe and low-impact access to Trestles, a surf and environmental world treasure in southern California.

The deadline for entries was April 17 and over 100 teams from 25 countries participated, with the largest block from the SoCal community.

At the Lowers Pro we will select 5 finalists who will spend the summer refining their idea into a tangible solution.

Stay tuned for the Safe Tretles People's Choice Awards to be launched next week.
