The Inertia

The Volcom Pipe Pro was an exciting way to kick off the 2017 competitive season. Before this year, the contest had only seen three winners in its entire history: Jamie O’Brien (1), John John Florence (4), and Kelly Slater (2). Now we can add 21-year old Soli Bailey to the list, nabbing the most high-profile win of his young career.

Here’s a look at some of the best waves Pipe had to offer during this past week and a half, along with a huge congrats to Soli Bailey for his big W.
