||This episode highlights the North Shore winter season kicking into full gear as the 2012 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing rolls into town. Starting with freesurf action from bombing Pipeline and Waimea Bay, we head over to Haleiwa for the first stop of the Triple Crown at Haleiwa for the Reef Hawaiian Pro taken out by none other than Sebastian 'Seabass' Zietz. Following Haleiwa is the second stop at world famous Sunset Beach for the Vans World Cup of Surfing. Seeing the return of Kelly Slater to the Sunset venue, the battle for the win was tight but Aussie Adam Melling pulled out the win. We also drop in on the 2012 Surfer Poll Awards where the best in surfing are honored in a night of humor and fun. And we profile Triple Crown winner Sebastien Zietz, talking about his surfing career that's led him to where he is now.
