Coffin Takes Vans World Cup

Dec 032017

They say that your vibe attracts your tribe, and that game recognizes game. They say those things because they’re true. Monster Energy’s Conner Coffin proved it on Saturday when he won the 2017 Vans World Cup Of Surfing. 

How so? Because Sunset is among the earth’s most powerful waves,  and Conner is among the most powerful surfers. And so when the last day of the final QS 10,000 began in unruly 10-12 foot surf, Sunset and Conner looked at each other, winked, and said, “Should we show them how it’s done?” And they did. Conner muscled his way through the stacked competition - past the heavy Hawaiians, past  CT staples, past everyone, all the way to the top of the podium.

 

The win puts Conner within striking distance of the Triple Crown title, which will come down to Pipeline next week. To get there, he’ll have to take down Monster teammate and future CT sparring partner Griffin Colapinto, who also finaled at Sunset. If you’re feeling the heat, don’t worry, that’s just the Monster team in fire in Hawaii! Congrats Conner and good luck at Pipe!
