Sunset beach was pumping on Monday with 10ft wave face heights during the Vans World Cup of Surfing. Local favorite and the 2011 champion of the Vans Triple Crown series, John Florence (HAW) posted the highest heat score of the event with a 17.8. Florence faced Sunset surfer Billy Kemper, younger brother Nathan Florence and Fred Patacchia (HAW). Thirty-two surfers advanced into Tuesday’s event as organizers pushed ahead into the finals to complete the second of the three Triple Crown jewels.
