Zarautz Overview

For the Saturday we had scattered weather conditions but some great waves and pushed through the Grom, Junior and Pro Am divisions as far as the semi finals. All finals were held on the Sunday with some rain through out the day including running the women’s and squids divisions from round one.It’s a great location and a real surf town with kids all over the place rain hail or shine.The location is in the centre of the beach just below the famous Restaurant / hotel (castle) of Karlos Arguinano with a concrete skate bowl that is just as busy as the ocean but just with all the kids.We were missing Junior finalist Ruben Vitoria after he hurt his wrist skateboarding before the final and was welcomed by our friends from the Ambulance service……..

The Squids level was really high and it was Portuguese Alfonso Antunes smooth surfing with confidence well beyond years, who took the win convincingly.

The Groms final was a battle and after an interference call around mid way it was also another Portuguese surfer by the name of Guillerme Ribeiro who was the winner.

The women were out to impress and were unlucky with tricky conditions in their final due to the changing tide, but great cutbacks and wave selection from Nadia Erostarbe earned her the win.

Congrats to Marcus Kleveland and Torgeir Bergrem for 2nd and 3rd place at the 2016 Innsbruck Air&Style
Wow, what a weekend it’s been in Innsbruck… The venue of the Air&Style had been shifted from the Bergisel Olympic Ski Jumping Stadium to downtown Innsbruck to accommodate even more fans. And they came out in huge numbers, no less than 17500 tickets were sold.. Hopefully, most of them came to see the snowboarding, not the trance/dance/rave/jungle/German hip hop sound on offer. Aside from that though, the set up was amazing and everything went according to schedule until the wind kicked in.. A gnarly föhnwind started blowing from the south, up from the Brenner Pass with a strength more resemblant of coastal climates.. It was so strong that sponsor banners started flying and jumping was out of the question. After the completion of round 2, the semis and finals had to becancelled, leaving Sebastian “Toot’s” Toutant in first place, Marcus Kleveland in 2nd and Torgeir Bergrem in 3rd. Huge congratulations to our boys, who of course were handsomely rewarded for their aerial efforts come night time, but that’s another story. For a quik summary of “who did what, check the below video. And thanks to VD for stunning photos.. Stay tuned for VD’s A&S video dropping this thursday Here’s a summary of the best riding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOKIFzpEAUM And if you want to see all jumps from round two, click here and watch the bottom video..

FINALS DAY Volcom Pipe Pro - RECAP!
Banzai Pipeline, North Shore, Oahu, HAWAII – (Tuesday, February 2, 2016) Kelly Slater (USA) solidified his first win in two years at the Volcom Pipe Pro today after a full day of standing ovation performances that many are calling the absolute best of the winter season. Slater surfed against three of the top Pipe mavericks in the world – Jamie O’Brien (HAW), Bruce Irons (HAW) and Makai McNamara (HAW) in a nerve-shattering Final that saw barrels fire off like cannons and detonate on the notoriously shallow reef. Kelly Slater, 2016 Volcom Pipe Pro Champion! photo: Jack Morrissey The 30-minute Final got started with two low scoring albeit immense waves from O’Brien and Irons, respectively, then saw McNamara answer back with the second highest wave of the heat, an 8.67. The 20-year old took an early lead on his opening wave, with Slater taking a quick second on his first ride, a 7.83. Halfway through the Final, the 11-time World Champ secured the win with a backup score of an 8.73, while the other competitors fought hard for the runner-up position. Makai McNamara. photo: Brian Bielmann O’Brien scored a 4.27 for a long left, finally finding a barrel in the second section of the wave, and backed up the mediocre score with a 5.67 for an inside Backdoor barrel. The combined heat total of 9.94 secured a second place finish for the Pipeline Master. The first perfect ten of the day - and the third of the event - O’Brien routed an ultra deep backside barrel to claim the Electric 10-point ride award for $1,000. Calm and cool, O’Brien was in complete control while navigating a high line, eventually bursting out of the tube after the spit. Marco Giorgi (URY) nabbed one of the highest scores of the morning, a near perfect score of a 9.67 for a tricky Backdoor barrel that threatened to clamp down. Giorgi is the sole surfer hailing from Uruguay in this competition. Marco Giorgi. photo: Jack Morrissey Tom Whittaker (AUS) was the highest placing Australian of the event, surfing in the fourth Quarterfinal against Jamie O'Brien (HAW), Mason Ho (HAW) and fellow countryman Soli Bailey (AUS). Baily, 20, had the opportunity to surf one of his first Pipe events in excellent conditions and was humble about the experience. “This is one of the first events I’ve surfed out here, so that’s a special thing," said Soli. "I think anyone that gets a chance to surf an event out here is super lucky and so fortunate. I’m just so glad that I got through to where I did and got to get so many barrels. It’s such an honor to get to surf this wave at its pretty much ultimate best and get through those heats and compete against some of the world’s best out here." Wiggolly Dantas (BRA) narrowly missed a shot at the Quarterfinals after being taken out by Makai McNamara (HAW) who advanced behind Mason Ho (HAW). The Brazilian is a standout in North Shore waves and has spent the winter honing his talents here at Pipeline. Check out Final's Day Heats On Demand & Photo Gallery!
