Ian Walsh Wins the Day

Ian Walsh Wins the Day

Ian Walsh couldn't have leveraged his local knowledge any better Friday at Pe'ahi, where he dominated Heat 3 of Round One. The Maui local's first two waves of the winter at Jaws were two of the biggest bombs of the day. He took off steep on both, before leaning into big bottom turns and racing huge walls. The performance earned him the highest heat total of the day -- 26.13 -- which saw him advance on top of his Maui buddy and current Big Wave Tour leader Kai Lenny and Australian charger Ryan Hipwood.
