“Can't believe the time has come but the Pipe Masters will be my last professional surfing event. The journey has been incredible and I have been able to see and surf the most perfect waves on the planet with one other guy out. I will forever be grateful for to @asp and @quiksilver for giving me the opportunity to do what I love for a living. Thank you to anyone who ever cheered me on and especially to my friends and family for the constant support. Looking forward to the next chapter”.
