After years of surfing at the highest level, Pancho Sullivan (HAW) is stepping away from surfing in competitions. Sullivan's career has stood out in many ways: At 32, he became the oldest rookie on the Championship Tour (CT). In 2008, after finishing at No. 7 in the world, he left the CT and went on to compete in specialty and Triple Crown events. During the 2015 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, Sullivan announced his full retirement and discussed his plans for what comes next.
