Good mate and all-round top bloke Jack Johns became the first Brit to compete in the IBA Pipeline pro.
A professional bodyboarder earning himself a place through the UK tour, Jack had commentators and top 16 pro's muttering all sorts of praise regarding the talented brit. "Nice bloke, Good looking for an Englishman and someone to keep an eye on" were just a few flooding the live stream as 5 million worldwide viewers tuned in for the first day of the Hawaiian contest.
Jack's heat saw a lengthy lull making it even harder to catch waves and forced Jack into two late waves with little time to score enough points to proceed into the next round.
Well done Jacky, Dead proud and stoked for all the well deserved praise.
