Josh Moniz Wins the 2018 Volcom Pipe Pro!
A flawless day at Pipe and Backdoor ended with Hawaiian native and Billabong rider Josh Moniz taking home the win in the 2018 Volcom Pipe Pro! The waves were all-time with sets constantly double or triple overhead all day and the surfing on display was as exciting as anything else happening in the sporting world. Josh led the final heat with six minutes to go only to see past event champion and North Shore legend Jamie O'Brien score a perfect 10 to take the lead. Josh responded quickly and with less than five minutes left on the clock he scored an 8.73 to take the lead for good.
A 0.13 margin of victory made this a nail-biting for Josh but nonetheless a win that elevates Josh to 1st on the QS and sets the benchmark for the rest of 2018 as he looks to qualify for the 2019 CT.
