The 11th edition of the event returns to the legendary Hawaiian surf break known as the Banzai Pipeline.
The Volcom Pipe Pro kicks off January 29 – February 10. Held on the North Shore of Oahu, the event brings together 144 of the world’s best surfers to compete on the unrivaled wave of waves, the legendary Banzai Pipeline. This year the event has been upgraded to a Men’s QS 5000-rated competition and now offers more points and more prize money as the surfers battle for $100,000.
The iconic break will bring stiff competition as defending event winner, Jack Robinson (AUS) and four-time champion John John Florence (HAW) battle local competition Josh Moniz (HAW), who won in 2018, his brother, Seth Moniz (HAW), who won Rookie of the Year, and a roster of other high-caliber athletes including local resident Jamie O’Brien (HAW).
