Brett Barley -a Buxton, North Carolina local- turned a lot of heads at the Volcom Pipeline Pro on Jan. 29th. The 20-year-old goofy footer eagerly took one of only five perfect 10.0s and racked up the highest heat score of the contest: 19.67. DelmarvaNOW.com says “Gnarly Barley Makes the East Coast Proud,” and I couldn’t agree more. It’s awesome to see a Cape Hatteras kid charge (and score big) at Pipe.
SURFER: “Barley, who entered the event as somewhat of a dark horse, smashed the events highest heat total by surfing a nearly flawless heat… eliminating Hawaiian heavies and pipeline specialist.”
