Kalani Chapman Wins The Volcom Pipe Pro Wildcard Challenge

Rusty is proud to announce that Kalani Chapman has won the 2011 Volcom Wildcard Challenge. Pipeline legends Gerry Lopez (who chimed in via the internet from Canada), Derek and Michael Ho had the final say and they all unanimously voted Kalani as the winner after seeing his best five waves at Pipeline this winter. Kalani will receive the wildcard into the round of 64 for the 2011 Volcom Pipe Pro!

There were a lot of really good entries, but in the end no one could match Kalani’s waves. Make sure you keep an eye on the conditions and tune into Volcompipepro.com for the start of the waiting period on January 24th, 2011.

Kalani Chapman’s 9’0″ Gun

When the North Shore gets big and windy Kalani Chapman knows his favorite board to grab...his Rusty 9'0" Gun. Chapman cashes in on a few pre-Thanksgiving bombs and the cameras love it.

"I basically wanted to catch as many waves as possible. The waves were big and it was pretty windy. I just felt really comfortable on it. Throughout all the years of surfing Pipe you gotta learn what works and what doesn't, and I've learned that bigger boards work. So that's what I went for and it worked out. That board is sick. I wouldn't change anything about it. Hopefully some more big swells come so I can do that again."
