Colapinto soars in CT, Coffin earns World Cup victory

Heff / WSL

Saturday was finals day at the World Cup of Surfing at Sunset Beach, Oahu. Conner Coffin (white) took the top prize and Griffin Colapinto (red) reached the final heat for the second consecutive Triple Crown contest. Colapinto sits atop the Triple Crown leaderboard with Kolohe Andino (green) in second place heading into the Pipe Masters.

You may not be too familiar with Griffin Colapinto. If that’s the case, don’t beat yourself up. You can’t be expected to keep tabs on every 19-year-old trying to make a name for themselves in the surf world. But after making his second straight final heat, Colapinto sits atop the Triple Crown of Surfing leaderboard, though finishing up with that title is still a tall order.
