History was made today as Tyler Wright earned the first women’s Championship Tour win at surfing’s ultimate proving ground, the Banzai Pipeline.
Immediately following Wright’s victory, it was John John Florence’s time to step into the spotlight and make a little bit of history. Since 2008, when he was just 14 years old, Florence has only missed one Pipe Masters (in 2018 due to injury). He’s finished runner-up twice, but otherwise, in those 11 years he has never gotten past the Quarterfinals.
That all changed today as he took out rival Gabriel Medina and topped the podium like he was summiting Everest.
