Seth Moniz Wins the North Shore Surf Shop Jr Pro
Seth Moniz has been logging incredible ours at Pipeline this winter season. In fact, Surfing Magazine recently noted that it is "not so bold a prediction: Seth Moniz will win Steep And Deep at some point in his life."
Well, it was no surprise when Seth made the final of the North Shore Surf Shop Pipeline Jr. Pro. Nor was it much of a surprise that his brother Isaiah and fellow team rider Griffin Colapinto made it either. The entire Billabong grom crew has been putting in long hours on the North Shore this season and the work seems to have been paying off. Both Josh and Seth keep producing epic GoPro clips at Backdoor on an almost daily basis.
Thus, we couldn't be less surprised or more stoked to see Seth Moniz as the champion of the North Shore Surf Shop Pipeline Jr. Pro. A big congrats to Seth, Isaiah and Griffin - job very well done boys, couldn't be more stoked for ya.
