The Triple Crown of Surfing ended with the highly coveted Pipe Masters on Saturday and crowned Kieren Perrow from Australia as its champion. The result came after three days of competitive surfing in some of the biggest waves in the contest’s history. The event also set a record for the most online viewers in ASP history.

Local boy John John Florence, 19, finished fifth after world champ Kelly Slater knocked him out of the Pipe quarterfinals. But with Florence’s consistent performance through all three events in the Series, he was named overall winner of the 2011 Vans Triple Crown.
