We’re proud to announce that Dragon surfer Griffin Colapinto has clinched the Vans Triple Crown, one of surfing’s most prestigious awards. By virtue of his 2nd place at the Hawaiian Pro and 4th at the Vans Pro. Griffin didn’t make it into the Billabong Pipe Pro but had enough points to carry him to the title.
Colapinto, 19, also locked up a berth into the 2018 World Surf League Championship Tour, joining other San Clemente surfers Kolohe Andino and Patrick Gudauskas. Griffin posted the following on Instagram about his Triple Crown win.
Well I guess this is the recipe to wining the Triple Crown ?.. I made this goal sheet about a year and a half ago. I completely forgot I still had this until my dad sent it to me yesterday but it makes me really happy to see this little drawing I made come to life hahah. Thank You @billabong for the dinner last night and having a place for me to stay in Hawaii the past 8 years! Also I am very thankful for the Moniz Family, taking me under their wing since I was 12 years old and showing me how everything works over here in Hawaii! Mahalo! Now time to go home and enjoy it! 🙂 @revelstoke
