Walk a Pipeline mile in the shoes of a competitor, a team manager and a photographer.
The incredible waves and fierce competition of the Volcom Pipe Prohas been searing the retinas of the surf world for seven years now. The peerless troika of John John Florence, Jamie O’Brien and Kelly Slater have owned the trophy, but new blood has stormed the scene at each edition.
Sterling performances aren’t limited to the competitors, however; a huge casts work hard behind the scenes to bring the event to life, fine-tune the athletes and broadcast it all to the world.
In "Three Perspectives," we follow a trio of Volcom Pipe Pro crew members. Carlos Muñoz is an emerging Costa Rican powerhouse whose flamboyant look and laid-back demeanor are at odds with his deadly competitive game. A 26th place finish on last year’s Qualifying Series has Muñoz within striking distance of the Championship Tour, and he’s hungry to kick off 2015 in style.
Behind Muñoz and the rest of the Volcom surf team stands Matt Bemrose. A former competitor himself, Bemmy is a coach, a caddyand a confidant, the man with the clipboard cracking the whip. Volcom’s Sergeant At Arms will never be busier than during this event.
Zak Noyle is not happy to simply sit in the top tier of the totem of Pipeline photographers. He is obsessed with bringing the best days to the world in real time, and has embraced new media with an unparalleled passion.
Enter the arena with our three wise men, as we bring the Volcom Pipe Pro to life through their eyes.
