Makai McNamara is back for more blood at the Volcom Pipe Pro 2017

After an epic run last year, the North Shore local has his eyes on that Pipe Pro trophy in 2017. His performance in that final was as storybook as his run through the comp to get there — he was first to strike, carrying his momentum in from the semi, and he seemed to know he needed to push himself deeper than the vets he was surfing against to separate himself from that pack of Pipe royalty. His wipeout will go down as the heaviest of the event’s history, and as he sprinted down the beach after breaking his board, the people’s champ of the 2016 Pipe Pro was officially crowned.

He finished third, though he admits that for the weeks after, and still to this day at times, local friends and family still congratulate him on winning the whole damn thing. McNamara, as humble as they come, is always quick to correct … but he’s sure to remind ‘em to keep an eye on him in 2017.

Tune in to Red Bull TV to watch the Volcom Pipe Pro, from now through to the end of the waiting period on Feb. 10, live from the North Shore of Oahu.
