The Moniz family shows its love and support to Josh (blue jersey) after his victory at the Volcom Pipe Pro on Sunday at Pipeline on Oahu. Moniz took the QS 3,000 title, barely outpointing Jamie O’Brien in a thrilling final heat. It gives Moniz the early-season QS rankings lead.
On a day that saw one dynasty defeated in the Super Bowl, another dynasty was adding a title to its record of achievement. The Moniz family has become a staple of the Hawaii surf community over the past three to four decades and Josh Moniz’s victory on Sunday at the Volcom Pipe Pro added to that legacy.
