Makua Rothman’s Ten Point Ride And More From Day Two At The Volcom Pipe Pro
A little better all the time.
Pipe’s proper today. You can watch the Volcom Pipe Pro live right here. Yesterday conditions improved and although it looked playful (for Backdoor standards) it was still heavy and critical. Makua Rothman racked up the first perfect ten of the event. Two of Pipe’s finest Bruce Irons and Mason Ho battled it out in a heat, Mason took the W and the highlight reel above is worth a watch. Dig in.
