Day 3 at the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro went down in the books! It was a day of heavy upsets and flawless conditions which concluded with Heat 14 of Round 3. Kelly Slater went down to an in-form Bruce Irons and young gun Seth Moniz, while Jack Robinson, who was a standout at last year’s Volcom Pipe Pro, ended up losing priority and searching for a score in the dying minutes of his heat, but luck didn’t deliver. Another story from today was a collision in Heat 6 by Bino Lopes and Joshua Burke who mistakenly tried crossing each other on their ways to Pipe and Backdoor. As the day progressed, the sun came out, things started heating up (no pun intended), and the highlight clips were served. John John exercised his home base knowledge and bagged a couple huge scores in typical JJ fashion, Makuakai Rothman got blown out of a flawless Backdoor barrel, Miguel Tudela snagged a textbook Pipe gem, and of course, there were some classic Pipeline wipeouts. Be sure to catch the recap video above for all of today’s highlights and action!
