Soli Bailey Clinches 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro

Byron Bay doesn’t look much like the North Shore of Oahu, yet Soli Bailey somehow still seemed right at home. Start-to-finish in the 2017 Volcom Pipe Pro, Bailey advanced through every heat without making too much noise, a silent assassin. He was consistent and smart in the lineup throughout the event, yet not many on the beach recognized his name as he paddled out for the Final. After his performance today, that’ll no longer be a problem around these parts.

Bailey’s well-rounded style and skill set lent itself to the shifting sands at Pipe perfectly, and it paid off in the Final. He came into the heat as an underdog, matched up against a fellow young gun in Griffin Colapinto as well as the experience of Bruce Irons and Adriano De Souza. He established a rhythm early and was first to strike, leaving the rest of the boys trying to catch up. They never did.
